"The challenge isn't the man next to you, it's the field in front of you"
The American Protection & Patrol Dog Association (APPDA) Program is designed to consistently and fairly test and evaluate the defense, fight, hunt drive, courage, endurance and the strength of character of each dog.
Our goal is to create a true and enjoyable test for all levels of dog/handler teams. APPDA will demonstrate dogs capable and willing to protect their handlers in everyday, practical situations.
