We have reached our first 100 Signatories and with feedback continuing to be encouraging, we thank each one for founding the way.
With our research demonstrating that 90+% of Practitioners believe that National Registration under one inclusive body is the way forward, now is the time for every individual to unite for the greater good. The Council was set up to take on that role, based on holding and managing the register of Signatories to the only industry thing that has been written and agreed nationally in many, many years, the CAWC Code.
The Code is not just a piece of paper, it is a personal commitment to the standards set by it, including being accountable for any service they provide or help to provide. In implementing the Code in regard to dogs, the Council has provided professional profiling and public feedback facilities. It is every grass root individual practitioner that is influential in the education of the public, and as such, we need to offer support to help ensure all provide the best service possible.
We are also beginning to receive affiliation interest from Related Organisations wishing to help us develop a cohesive and supportive network, whilst appreciating each for their individuality and the good work they do.
The register of Service Providers for public access under the list of Canine Services is next on our list, so watch this space.
These pages are divided into the three areas (as below) to provide information more specifically for the different types of potential visitors to the site.
Information for the public - to explain how we work to help to find a suitable dog training and or behaviour service(s) for their needs, and how offering a feedback service will allow people to help us ensure practitioners provide their services to the standards expected by the Code of Practice.
Information for Practitioners - to explain how to register their commitment to the Code, and acknowledging the part they play in teaching and advising others at the level of personal involvement, experience and knowledge.
Information for Organisations - to explain how to register their involvement in the industry sector, to be credited for their aims and the part they play in educating and supporting the development of Practitioners, and through them, the public.
