ABTC

 

Accreditation of Animal Behaviourists – Full/Professional Member of the Association of INTOdogs

Veterinary surgeons now have the opportunity to refer behaviour cases to suitably qualified practitioners who are members of independently verified organisations.

The Animal Behaviour and Training Council (ABTC) has become the regulatory body that represents animal trainers and behaviour therapists to both the public and legislative bodies.

The ABTC maintains a National Register of appropriately qualified animal trainers and behaviourists. Whilst membership of the ABTC is not available to individuals, it is assessed via a member organisation.

The first non-founding organisation of the ABTC is The Association of INTOdogs.

Full/Professional members of the Association of INTOdogs are accredited by the ABTC and are granted the additional title of Accredited Animal Behaviourist (AAB).

Our members would welcome veterinary referrals from your practice and would be more than happy to arrange an appointment to meet to discuss this further.

Behaviour problems in dogs can be complex in nature and in some cases might be directly or indirectly related to present or past medical conditions / pain. Therefore, it is essential that any animal displaying signs of a new or sudden onset behavioural problem be taken for a preliminary veterinary examination. This is to check for any illness or injury, which may be causing or exacerbating the behaviour problem. Further correspondence with the referring veterinary surgeon may be required, if drug therapy would be beneficial to the behaviour modification plan, or if further diagnostic test are necessary.
