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. One of our board members, Jackie Murphy who represents us at all the ABTC meetings has taken the position of vice Chair on behalf of TCBTS for this coming year.
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.
We can help you to understand the problem and work towards modifying your dog’s behaviour.

Applicants for TCBTS membership come from all kinds of backgrounds and levels of experience – find out more about the benefits of becoming a TCBTS member.
TCBTS members like to work closely with the veterinary profession and following a behaviour consultation, a copy of the client’s report is normally sent to their vet.
