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.

Up Services FAQs


This page is being developed as per the information given below, and underlined links will appear in bold type when activated.

The Search facility for specific services is not currently active, as during stage one (2016), we are building the database of those providing those services. All Signatories will however be listed by name and location on the appropriate Register and all will be able to use the RCDTBP logo, demonstrating their commitment to the professional standards set by the CAWC Code of Practice.


During stage one, each registered Practitioner will be completing a personal profile to identify their experiences and the areas of service they provide or help to provide; and each Service Provider will be able to formally register for each of the services they offer.


Practitioner profiles will be added in due course and the 'Search for Services' will be fully activated for stage two.


The search facility area divides all canine services under 6 categories, each of which is further divided allowing the Public looking for service, to be more specific about their needs, whether it be puppy socialisation, general training, a problem behaviour or a more competitive activity: See Service Categories for current list of activities.


Service Providers will be listed under each of the activities they offer, and each Provider will be responsible for ensuring that their Practitioners are appropriately allocated, experienced and knowledgeable to do deliver the services they offer.


The public (confidential) feedback facility, when activated, will welcome comment from users on the quality of service received, to help us manage the Code and offer guidance to Practitioners and Providers where appropriate.
