Default Certification

For the Police K9 handlers here:

After talking with a K9 officer who lives in a remote area of the country, I thought about this:

What certification body are you using in your area of the country for certification: USPCA, NAPWDA, IPWDA, NNDDA, etc. ? Anyone certifying under more than one ?

Is anyone relying solely on "Certification" provided by a private training entity, and not an organization such as one of the above?

It interests me that some regions are sometimes more likely to use one over the other. Thoughts? Is it sometimes just the result of geography, and who is nearby and more convenient for you?
