CAPBT, the COAPE Association of Applied Pet Behaviourists and Trainers, is one of the largest specifically qualified association for pet behaviourists and trainers in the world. Membership offers all pet owners a guarantee of quality when seeking help with the treatment of behaviour problems, or in training your dog or puppy.



All members have completed the COAPE Diploma course, and work under a strict Code of Practice which includes the assurance that coercive or punitive techniques and equipment are never used in treatment. CAPBT members maintain their state-of-the-art competence and knowledge through attending various Continuing Professional Development courses offered by COAPE International and others. Our members have ongoing access to a wealth of expertise and support via a lively Members Association of several hundred qualified members. You can be assured of the very best of qualified and up to date help with a CAPBT member.


If a client is unsatisfied with the services they have received, they should refer to our complaints procedure which can be found here.


CAPBT is also a founding member of the UK Dog Beahviour and Training Charter Group. The UK Dog Behaviour and Training Charter provides assurance to the public and other professional bodies that the practitioner they employ has been checked, supported and monitored by a reputable accrediting member organisation. More information about the Charter can be found here.
