Our Mission Statement:
Members of TCBTS inspire owners by implementing solutions to dog behaviour and training problems using kind positive methods and recognise that the welfare of the dog is paramount in accordance with the ABTC code of practice.
The Canine Behaviour & Training Society, 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.
Did you know that anyone wishing to be placed on the ABTC listings as a Animal Training Instructor (ATI), Animal Behaviour Technician (ABT) or Clinical Animal Behaviourist (CAB) can only do so by meeting the appropriate criteria and being a member of an organisation that is registered with the ABTC?
As a founder member, TCBTS can currently assess full members for ATI and ABT registers. Please look at ‘Becoming a member‘ for further information.
We are now able to offer applicants at student level the opportunity to join our organisation without attending an interview as long as certain criteria is met. Interviews now take place before being accepted as a provisional member.
