The UK Registry of Canine Behaviourists (UKRCB) is celebrating 20 years of successful dog therapy in 2012.
Founded in 1992, the UKRCB comprises a nationwide network of canine behaviour advisors who offer a referral service to veterinary surgeons and owners of dogs with behaviour problems, such as aggressive tendencies towards humans or other dogs.
“We are delighted to be celebrating our 20 year anniversary,” said Lisa Graham of the UKRCB. “It’s a real milestone for us and for everyone interested in advancing responsible dog ownership.
“Over the past 20 years, UKRCB members have helped thousands of owners to understand their dogs and train them to integrate into the family home.
”People have a responsibility to ensure that their dog is well behaved and with UK dog numbers increasing beyond 8,000,000, our role has become more important than ever.”
As well as dog aggression issues, the UKRCB also deals with compulsive behaviour, inappropriate barking, separation-related behaviours, nervous or fearful behaviour and many other common and not so common canine conditions.
All members of the UKRCB are experienced therapists with track records in modern, kind training methods and the assessment of behavioural problems.
The UKRCB also holds a symposium each year for members of the public, dog training instructors, members of the veterinary profession and canine behaviourists. The 20th UKRCB Symposium will take place on September 30, 2012 at the Hilton Coventry Hotel, Warwickshire. This year’s topic is The Human Animal Bond – Interactions, Problems, Consequences, and is to be presented by Claire Corridan of Nethan Valley Veterinary Centre in Lanarkshire.
