Why join us?

  • Have a voice

    Government prefers talking to trade associations rather than a large number of separate businesses – it’s more efficient and makes their job easier. As a member of AMDO, you are able to participate in our efforts to ensure that our industry is fit for purpose and contributes positively to animal welfare and responsible pet ownership.

  • Your business is more credible

    Membership of a recognised trade association will demonstrate to your customers that you meet best practice standards.

  • Individual advice
