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.
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.
