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.

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.
