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.

Welcome to our website

The Registration Council for Dog Training and Behaviour Practitioners (RCDTBP) is the United Kingdom’s independent organisation set up in 2010 to manage the CAWC Code of Practice and all that it entails. The Code sets industry agreed minimum professional standards for all those involved with providing a dog training and or behaviour service, and as such holds the official ‘Register of Signatories’ agreeing to be guided to it.

In managing the Code, the Registration Council offers:

On this site the Public will find information on finding appropriate training and behaviour services, secure that all listed Practitioners and Providers are committed to maintain the professional standards set by the CAWC Code of Practice and reassured by the feedback facility offered. Practitioners and Providers will find information on registration and committing not just to the Code but being prepared to work as part of a network to ensure that the dog-owning public and training enthusiasts receive the most suitable service for their individual needs.

Practitioners will also find that the Council is committed to give guidance and support to help all in their search to advance their own knowledge and skill. Related Organisations will find information on mutual Affiliation, to be appreciated for what each has to offer and to help ensure animal welfare is a priority and the public benefit from the provision of a good service.
