Petworks Announces Partnership With the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT)

Petworks (https://www.petworks.com), the pet care marketplace for a new generation of pet parents and pros, has partnered with the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT) in an effort to provide credentialed professional trainers and behavior consultants to a growing number of pet families. This initiative is designed to educate pet parents on dog training, and connect them with trained professionals. CCPDT is a leader in the development of rigorous exams to demonstrate mastery of humane, science-based dog training practices. Thousands of dog training professionals worldwide maintain the CCPDT’s certifications as a mark of high professional distinction. 
“Through this partnership, we look to increase pet parent understanding of certified training professionals,” said Michael Caldwell, CEO of Petworks. “We look forward to highlighting professionals who have earned the trusted CCPDT certification and connecting them with pet parents needing training and behavior services. Our pets bring us such joy throughout their lives, and as their guardians, we can enjoy peace of mind knowing that we have entrusted their training care to a credentialed professional.” 
“The Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers welcomes the opportunity to connect our certified professional dog trainers and dog behavior consultants with Petworks’ dog owners who need training and behavior services,” said Brad Phifer, Executive Director of CCPDT. “Our CPDT-KA®, CPDT-KSA®, and CBCC-KA® certificants are committed to the highest standards in dog training and have demonstrated a level of knowledge and professionalism that is relied on by dog owners around the world.”
Petworks, at the forefront of pet care trends and insights, has seen pet parent requests for pet training nearly triple in 2021. Training has become the #1 most requested service on its platform year-to-date, fueled by new pet parents seeking to socialize their newly adopted “COVID furbaby” pets, and existing pet parents returning to work post-pandemic. Many families are addressing separation anxiety issues with pets home alone for the first time in more than a year.
