Promoting Excellence in Animal Behaviour and Training
The Animal Behaviour and Training Council
"A not for profit organisation"
The Animal Behaviour and Training Council is the regulatory body that represents animal trainers and animal behaviour therapists to both the public and to legislative bodies.
It sets and maintains the standards of knowledge and practical skills needed to be an animal trainer, training instructor or animal behaviour therapist, and it maintains the national register of appropriately qualified animal trainers and animal behaviourists.
It promotes the welfare of animals in their interactions with humans, lobbying for humane methods in training and behaviour modification, and for the education of the animal owning public.
