The CAWC Code is not just a piece of paper, it is a personal commitment to the standards set by it. In implementing the Code, the Council has provided professional profiling and public feedback facilities, to meet future and professional demands. The Registration Council is not a business, it is a not-for-profit organisation run on a voluntary basis, and registered as ‘RCDTBP Community Interest Company’ number 11941540

All individual practitioners are influential in the education of the public, and as such, we (practitioners) need to unite and offer mutual support and guidance to help ensure everyone provides most appropriate service in the best way possible. Having attended a recent consultation meeting on licensing and responsible ownership, many are encouraging action on further regulations. This is not a competition but at times, with so much confusion, it feels like it. The RCDTBP is all inclusive and welcomes all related organisations and individuals committed to animal welfare and responsible ownership, regardless of other affiliations.

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.
