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.
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.
