Having attended a consultation meeting on regulations on 27th Sept 2019, we are even more confident that the basics of everything that attendees referred to is already in place, and can easily be developed further. The CAWC Code seems widely acknowledged but the RCDTBP, founded in 2010 to hold the registers of Signatories to it, seems to have been a little lost in the ether.
In implementing the Code, the RCDTBP inclusively provides all individuals with a structured profile to register and build knowledge and experience, and together with the public feedback facility offered, it aims to help ensure every practitioner meets, and continually develops to meet, the professional demands of the industry.
The RCDTBP works on positivity, and our processes identify those for what they ‘put in’ to the industry, the profiling provides criteria to both recognise expertise and help all to develop.

The Council was founded to hold and manage the official register of SIGNATORIES to nationally agreed CAWC Code of Practice. It aims to ensure that all Practitioners and Providers work as part of a united professional network to that end, and that each gives accurate information, advertise and deliver their services appropriately to the standards set by the Code.
All listed Signatories have voluntarily signed-
… If you have contacted and or used the services of a listed Signatory (Individual Practitioner, Service or Course Provider) whether satisfied or not so, we ask that you take a few minutes to provide some FEEDBACK in confidence for quality assurance purposes.
... If you have not yet used the services of a listed Signatory and are looking for general or specialised training services, and or help with your dog’s behaviour, please go to our Services page for more information.
Your feedback is important -
If you are happy or very happy, your comments will assure us of your satisfaction. If you are a little dissatisfied with the service received or part of it, your comments could help us give further guidance to the practitioner(s) / provider(s) concerned, in line with the standards set by the Code, to help improve the future experience for others.
Should you wish to make a serious complaint however against a listed Signatory which contravenes the standards set by the Code, please contact us. Please also see our Regulations area for further information on the grievance procedure involved.
