No Home Study


All of our workshops are available to attend as ‘stand-alone’ courses–you will receive a certificate of attendance and be able to dip your toe into CIDBT without committing to a whole programme of education.

Everyone leaves these sessions buzzing and wanting to know more! We want that for you too. This is a remarkable learning experience and a wonderful opportunity to meet like-minded people.

We almost guarantee that you (and your dogs if they come along) will have a great nights sleep afterwards too!

Discover My Journey


CIDBT was established in 2005 by a number of canine behaviour practitioners and specialist dog trainers.

Our aim was to simply educate future canine professionals in the real skills and practical experience required to successfully work in this profession. After creating hundreds of successful careers, we remain just as committed to ensuring we deliver honesty, openness and integrity and have an amazing team of highly qualified and true professionals who are passionate about people and dogs.

We operate workshops at central locations throughout the UK, allowing greater access to all those interested in this fulfilling career.

"The CIDBT have enabled me to gain knowledge which has furthered my career no end. I have found the workshops to be incredibly engaging, welcoming and thought provoking. Ross and all of the team have boosted my confidence as a professional in the industry and I am greatly looking forward to continuing my studies with them. Through attending their courses, I have come away with ample ideas, reassurance in my existing skills, and new colleagues and friends. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their courses."
