The Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC) was established in 1989 and is the UK’s leading organisation in the field of companion animal behaviour. Many of its members are at the cutting edge of the latest research into the rapidly growing research field of companion animal behaviour and welfare.

The APBC represents a network of behaviour counsellors that have achieved the highest proven academic and practical standards available in the field of companion animal behaviour therapy.  APBC members abide by a strict code of conduct and continually develop their professional knowledge so that clients and the veterinary surgeons who refer to them can be assured they receive the latest expert advice.

The organisation is also a founding member of the Animal Behaviour & Training Council - a regulatory body that represents animal trainers and animal behaviourists.

The APBC is also proud of its role as an education provider and continues to promote the best in pet behaviour therapy to improve the welfare of all companion animals.  It organises a number of seminars and events throughout the year for both the veterinary and behaviour professions.
