What is the CAPBT?

Got a Persian with a problem? Or a terrier who needs training? Then you’ve come to the right place.

In July 2011, the Centre of Applied Pet Ethology (COAPE) in the UK launched the COAPE Association of Pet Behaviourists and Trainers (CAPBT) in South Africa.

Already the largest specifically qualified association for pet behaviourists and trainers in the UK, this new branch offers South African pet owners a reliable standard of quality when seeking help with the treatment of behaviour problems, or in the training of their pets.

Membership of the CAPBT is solely by qualification – all behaviourists and trainers have passed COAPE’s independently accredited Diploma in Practical Animal Behaviour and Training – so a high standard of quality is maintained across the board. Members are also kept up-to-date on the latest research and techniques, attending continuing professional development seminars on relevant animal matters.

At the CAPBT SA, our focus lies wholly on providing exceptional service to each and every pet owner who needs help with a behaviour-related problem for their companion animals. All COAPE Diploma graduates use only the latest scientifically researched and proven protocols. This means ease of mind when consulting with any member of the CAPBT SA. Clients and veterinarians can be comfortable in the knowledge that their COAPE Behaviourist holds a solid qualification through a highly reputable educational facility.

Note: CAPBT SA consultation fees are covered by MediPet. This means you can claim behaviour consult fees back when you use any of our Practitioners or Affiliates.
