This publication on canine behaviour and dog training roles was commissioned by the Pet Education, Training and Behaviour Council of Great Britain. The aim is to set the future standards for the disciplines described and to allow the public to understand what each role entails and the standard of life training that pertains to it.


These comprise the vocational nature of the training and canine theory.
