USADT Verification Process

USADT Verification Process

The goal of the United States Association of Dog Trainers is to protect consumers and businesses by providing a report card on each Dog Trainer. Our reports allow consumers to become educated and empowers them with the ability to verify as much information as possible about the Dog Trainer they are evaluating.

If you believe that the customer is always right, then come join us!

Thousands of consumers across our network use our research reports and read our reviews every single day.

We understand that our process may be a necessary inconvenience to your business, but we strongly believe that consumers deserve to be well informed. There are currently over 6917 businesses claiming to be a Dog Trainer, many businesses do not meet even basic standards and do not deserve our recommendation. We believe that rewarding the best and exposing the rest helps the Dog Trainer industry move forward. Wouldn’t you agree?

We research all new member applications with state and local governments as well as third party sites. This process takes some time and effort, but our team can approve most new members within 24 hours and if approved your USADT report will reflect verified status and we will start recommending you to our visitors.

Verified members are granted access to use of our Trusted seal which may be displayed on their website to show customers they are committed to customer safety and security and value their business.

Why Wait? Submitting your business information for verification only takes about 5 minutes to complete.

To help cover the cost of research, we are now charging a small one time application fee of $49.97 to research your company and verify your license and business information. If you do not pass verification, this charge will be refunded.

Charging a small fee helps eliminate bad submissions, in the past we absorbed the cost of research and offered free verification but we were flooded with applications from low quality businesses who try to benefit from our recommendations, but do not meet USADT standards.

We also found that businesses that are unable to afford a small fee are also unable to handle the increase in business that results from being recommended on our network, resulting in poor handling of the customers that were recommended.
