Continual Professional Development

 

At the Wolf and Whippet we believe in continual learning and understanding about Canines, their biology, history and behaviour. Hence we continue to attend workshops, seminars, complete courses, read and research. Keeping up to date with animal behavioural science and gaining further in-depth knowledge, aiding our work with each dog we work with. Our personal experience volunteering in rescue and dog assessments, our own working breeds of dogs, to new and existing clients with our company is also key. We feel that a CPD is incredibly important to offer the services we provide and would want for our dogs and pets.

As Suzy is a fully accredited member of The Association of INTODogs (www.intodogs.org) and certified trainer, we display the UK Dog Behaviour and Training Charter symbol.

There are links at the bottom of the page to the affiliations and organisations we are certified by with further information.

 

                           

 

 

 

 

 

Please visit the charter website to see what assurances this symbol brings to dog guardians and other canine professionals.
