Auction (2016 Conference)

PDF Version

October 13, 2016, RIO Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada

While there has been an increase in research into dog behavior over the last few years, much of it is not applicable to actual practical work with dogs in the home and in shelters. The APDT Foundation was created to help raise money specifically for research projects that would be of practical use to dog trainers, dog behavior consultants, shelter trainers, and others who work to improve the lives of dogs and the humans they live with.

The foundation funds research grants on the study of dog behavior and training among both seasoned and up and coming researchers in the U.S. and internationally. The foundation also provides funding for the popular APDT poster session. You can learn more about our grantees at
