APA Feedback and Verify Approval

The value of ongoing feedback!




Know who you can trust

There are more businesses and products than ever and it is hard to know as a pet owner who to trust.  With APA Approved, you know the business or product you use is committed to a higher standard and you can use them with confidence.





Let your customers know!

You are in business to sell your product or service, and you are committed to the best, but how do you let pet owners know this? There are many factors that are important to your success; A good price, a great product or service and an effective marketing plan. Being APA Approved enhances all aspects of your business and produces measurable results.





25 years; The best reputation in the pet industry

The APA has a spotless reputation. This is because we try very hard to do what is right, every time. We pass up on huge advertising dollars because we can't afford to be influenced, we do not approve businesses or products that are questionable, we establish policies that are fair and in the best interest of our companion animals.  The APA is fair, committed and honest, because you count on us to be and we owe it to our companion friends.





Verify an APA Approved Business


We put a great deal of effort into our Approvals and it is very rare that an approval status changes over time. However, things can change, businesses can change ownership and new employees can affect a business operation. The APA recommends you check the status of an approval before visiting them, or when you are leaving feedback.

Leave Feedback about an APA Approved Business


We do everything in our power to be sure an APA Approval is something any pet owner can rely on. One of the most important aspects of our ability to have an Approval be just as valuable AFTER the initial approval is completed is consumer feedback.

APA Approval

Only the ethical need apply!

Product Testing

All products are physically tested by the APA or in the case of large numbers of similar products (ie. leashes of different colors), some are tested and others are inspected.

Ongoing Testing

Test products remain in use until the end of their useable life. Each year additional products can be requested if there has been a design change, different materials are used, or if the testers feel additional testing is required.

Consumer Feedback

Testing a few products gives us great information about the product, its usefulness, safety and value to pet owners.  But the feedback from thousands of pet owners is priceless.

Company Background and ethical business practices

Have you ever had a company say they will call you back and do not, offer a refund that never arrives, treat you rudely or offer a product that isn't quite what they say?

Those are not APA Approved businesses!
