ARDO is a totally unique association of dog owners, trainers behaviourists and scientists. As real-world, everyday dog owners, we consult speak and act together with and on behalf of you and your dogs. We are not a ‘trainer’ association. Whilst we have many members who are experienced, compassionate and knowledgeable trainers, ARDO membership is not restricted by qualifications or expertise. Members of ARDO share a love of dogs and a sense of responsibility to our canine friends, to the public at large and to other pets and livestock with whom our dogs come into contact.
“ARDO members are sympathetic and understanding to the necessary, proportionate and humane use of all legitimate training aids in the appropriate circumstances.”
We have no political, financial or ideological agenda, focusing instead on working with and for our members to assist them in creating the best possible relationship with their dogs. All advice, action or endorsement is strictly in line with our mission statement.”
