Only the ethical need apply!
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.
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
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!
