Regulating the industry is still a practitioner-led call as a solution to help raise standards of service to the public. As anyone can set-up overnight and call themselves a trainer or behaviourist, the industry remains divided and confusing to all searching for advice, whether an owner, learner, or provider. Sadly all continues to be held back by the lack of structure and any required registration through government legislation.
The RCDTBP is a not-for-profit ‘Community Interest Company’ simply aiming to inclusively unite all practitioners and all related organisations as Signatories to the only single nationally-agreed professional code of practice (CAWC Code 2010).
The RCDTBP works on positivity, founded in 2010 to hold the registers of Signatories to the Code, in moving forward has incorporated a structured profiling system to identify all individuals for what they ‘put in’ to the industry. Together with a public feedback facility on services received, it aims to help ensure every practitioner meets, and continually develops to meet, the professional demands of the industry.
