General Information

Applicants may, for example, be students or have changed from a part-time to full-time career in dog behaviour and training. Equally, they may be active in local dog organisations, welfare, rescue or training operations. They may be in the process of accumulating and completing a number of dog behaviour and training courses towards full membership.


Applications should try and get the support of a full member of the CFBA who has knowledge of the applicant's present level of competence and work to date. A list of current members is available on this site.


Applications are considered by the Association's Fellows', which has authority to request further references if it deems necessary. The final decision on an application is made by the CFBA Fellows.


The CFBA uses the Pet Education Training and Behaviour Councils (PETbc) roles descriptions (widely accepted in Britain as a a standard of dog occupation descriptions) when considering all applications for dogs only. We ONLY recognise academic and vocational courses that are accredited, approved and assured by the Pet Education Training and Behaviour Council. These standards are also reflected by LANTRA the (Government Department) for such definitions.

Applications may be submitted at any time during the year. They will be considered at the next meeting of the Fellows' board, which meets regularly. Applicants and if applicable their referees will be informed once a decision has been made on an application.


Applicants who are elected to Associate status of the CFBA may subsequently apply for Full Membership.
