TCBTS Setting The Standard

The Canine Behaviour & Training Society (formerly the UK Registry Of Canine Behaviourists Ltd. founded in 1992), is a non-profit making professional body of canine behaviourists and dog training instructors with members practising throughout the United Kingdom.

TCBTS members have a wealth of experience and if your dog’s behaviour is causing you concern, we can help you understand the problem and work towards modifying the behaviour.

We are a founder member of the Animal Behaviour and Training Council (ABTC) which maintains the national registers of appropriately qualified animal trainers and animal behaviourists. The quote below is from the ABTC

‘Being recognised as an ABTC Practitioner Organisation is no mean achievement. The standards that must be met are the most stringent in the sector and cover not just the skills, knowledge and understanding of the practicing members but also the management of the organisation. Continual monitoring also ensures that those standards continue to be met for as long as membership is maintained.
Being qualified to display the ABTC logo is a mark of excellence that conveys a commitment to quality at all levels to all concerned.’
