Jo Sanders started this petition to The Animal Welfare Organisation

It should be illegal for people to be able to call themselves animal trainers or behaviourist’s without a minimum level of recognised qualifications.

Anyone who has already attained a training/ behaviourist qualification which covers an outdated or scientifically proven to not be the most beneficial/ positive  way to train should have to retrain.

Why? Because the animals trained in the wrong way suffer.

Why? Because many animal  owners put their trust in a so called professional who is actually harming their animal.

Why? Because the wrong training can end in fear & aggression & animals ending up in shelters.

Can you imagine teaching, psychology, mental health treatment for humans not being regulated?? No...Well why then is it ok for animals?

Why do I care? I have two rescue Lurchers who had issues I saw a number of ‘behaviourist’s’ some of whom as I learnt more weren’t qualified & gave bad advice.

I work with animals I see many who are being supposedly helped by qualified ‘trainers behaviourist’s’ but they are not.
