Special Items

Where appropriate, due to either the inability to replace or the expensive cost of replacing items (such as some books & videos), APDT will use Express Post to post such items out to members. Loans from the library of such items will need to also be returned by Express Post (at your own expense).


Inclusion of an item in the library does not imply that APDT Australia either agrees with or condones all information contained therein. If members are to 'Actively pursue ongoing education in order to provide a service based upon sound scientific principles and current best practice' and 'Work at developing and applying positive methods of dog training' it is important that they be able to access all and any books relating to the field of Pet Dog Training.
