Greenville, SC, September 20, 2012 — The Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) is pleased to announce the Animal Farm Foundation now accepts Canine Life and Social Skills (C.L.A.S.S.) ® program Bachelor’s Degree as an acceptable achievement to qualify for the Community Dog Training Grant.

Working as a team with their human companions, dogs of all shapes and sizes have passed the APDT C.L.A.S.S. program and are now recognized as valued members of their communities. Animal Farm Foundation provides an Incentive Award to encourage dog and owner teams to now earn their APDT Canine C.L.A.S.S Bachelor’s Degree Title or AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC®) certification as a way to support their community’s shelters and rescues. While all dogs are welcomed to participate, Animal Farm Foundation will award $150 to pre-qualified participating organizations for each “pit bull” dog and owner team in their community who successfully complete the C.L.A.S.S. program.

This program is not just for “pit bull” dogs adopted from a shelter or rescue, any local “pit bull” dog and owner can participate. This incentive program provides an excellent opportunity to strengthen the bond between people and their pets, while raising money for shelters or rescue.
