Animal Courses Direct is passionate about welfare and are proud to be a Corporate member of the Pet Professional Guild. The Pet Professional Guild is the only membership organisation for professionals who subscribe to the view that aversive methods should never be used – or even deemed necessary – in the training or behaviour modification of any animal. Animal Courses Direct wholeheartedly support this view. We advocate force free training throughout our courses and qualifications. We also believe that experienced trainers must begin their behaviour change programme with the least invasive and least aversive training protocols necessary to change the problem behaviour.
