*Please note - the Alberta Force Free Alliance is not a policing body. We take business owners at their word that they will adhere to the guidelines laid out in our pledge. We are not responsible for any harm or damage (emotional, psychological or physical) that may happen to the dogs in the care of the businesses listed. If you suspect an animal has been harmed while in the hands of one of the listed businesses, please first take your dog to a veterinarian and contact your local Animal Protection Services and police authority to make a complaint. Call or email us at the Alberta Force Free Alliance and we will investigate the incident which may result in the removal of the business from our Directory.

* It is important that dog owners be aware an approved business is only approved in the areas they are listed under. For example, a dog daycare listed under dog daycares that also has training in its facility, does not mean the trainers that train there are AFFA approved. Owners would need to find out who the trainer is and look under the trainer section to see if that trainer is a member as well. This is not to say that if the trainer is not a member of the Alberta Force Free Alliance, that they are not force free. It simply means that their trainers have chosen not to join the AFFA and as such, we cannot recommend them one way or the other. We will not however, approve a daycare that uses aversive or forced based trainers. Another example would be an approved trainer who trains in a dog daycare. This does not mean that the dog daycare is a member of the AFFA. Owners must look under each category for each individual business to see if they are a member of the AFFA.
