PETbc Information

PETbc Canine Behaviour – Professional Dog Training National Standards
The National Standards were compiled with the assistance of advice providers in the voluntary and professional sectors to the PETbc. The standards are a framework for the development of effective and efficient services and were compiled in recognition of the fact that people choose to access information and advice from various sources.

The Standards framework can be used by any education canine or feline behaviour provider that is a member of the Pet Education Training & Behaviour Council in the UK to improve the quality of its services for the pet owning public and professional bodies like the MOD, Police and related industries using dogs.

To become accredited under the PETbc National Standards a course provider must be able to demonstrate that it meets the quality level defined by the standards and provides an efficient and effective service as written on the PETbc web site. When the provider is confident that it can do that it is assessed and audited by the PETbc education advisers who are independent of the course providers.
