We are delighted to have an official PPG chapter in South Africa. We promote and support all the great resources PPG offers to the pet training and care community. In addition, we are committed to providing relevant regional resources to South African pet professionals.

Our goal is to create and support a force-free South African community that takes care of animals using empathy, understanding, mindfulness and respect. We also aim to focus on the mental wellness of our professional community—this is one of our most important priorities.

We are all very passionate about the progression of force-free methods, and we encourage South African pet professionals to join us. Let’s raise the bar for our pet training and pet care and handling services.
