According to their website, the IAFPP is an organization of pet industry professionals, human companions and enthusiasts who wish to stand against abuse. With a similar mission, the Pet Professional Guild provides a single access point to a variety of force-free information and tools offered by and for pet care professionals who adhere to a strict code of conduct.
Caryn Charlie Liles, Executive Director of the IAFPP said, “Within a few short months, the PPG have developed a wonderful organization that promotes science-based, force-free methods in the pet industry. I immediately contacted the PPG in order to discuss the possibility of joining forces rather than having two associations that do the same thing. There is strength in numbers!” Current IAFPP members will receive immediate PPG membership with all the accompanying benefits.
The PPG’s key business purpose is to initiate a serious effort for the education of pet care providers and the public coupled with an emphasis on building a collaboration among force-free pet trainers and professional pet care providers. “We aim to publicize our voice for the profession that advocates for mutually agreed guiding principles for the pet care industry,” said Tudge.
