Ok, i checked out the web site reccomended to me here for a trainer. There was only one listed in my zip code. Lyn morningstar for anyone in the 239 [florida] area code. She is a member of APDT, but not certified. My vet is using a local trainer whom is also not certified. Would one be a better choice over the other? Is being a member of the APDT just paying dues, or does it ensure further education? I would like to get started asap with Miss Dixie. Thanks everyone!
