We continue to be delighted with the progress the Registration Council has made in moving forward for the greater good. Signatories are now building their professional profiles in stages, and feedback has been very encouraging.


In promoting a cohesive network, we have drafted a list of Related Organisations, appreciating each for their individuality and the good work they do towards advancing animal welfare, and supporting both the work of, and the training of, Practitioners and through them, the public. It is a draft list which requires feedback from all interested parties and users to add, amend, complete or confirm the details provided.


Our research demonstrated that more than 90% of Practitioners believe that National Registration under one inclusive body is the way forward. Now is the time to show your individual personal commitment to good dog training and behaviour service under the national Code with the RCDTBP, regardless of other memberships and affiliations. Only with your help and feedback can we help ensure standards of service are the best possible within the industry.

The Registration Council has the responsibility to manage and hold the official register of Signatories to the CAWC Code of Practice

 in regard to dogs. In doing so, it aims to unite all practitioners, service and course providers, related membership organisations

and charities; promote all efforts to advance animal welfare, and increase individual understanding of training, behaviour

and the canine-human relationship, whilst monitoring services to benefit and protect the public.
