International Canine Behaviourists Limited (ICB) provides continuing education for professional canine behaviourists and supports members in their career choice, while at the same time offering advice to dog owners to help overcome unwanted behaviours. ICB prides itself on having members who have an abundance of ‘hands on’ experience, theoretical knowledge and academic qualifications, and who are committed to using force-free scientifically proven methods of behaviour modification. All our members pledge never to use any approach that may harm a dog’s physical and mental wellbeing and abide by our motto, “Welfare never compromised”.
Our short to medium term objectives are to increase membership by being recognised as a leading behaviour-only organisation, support all members by providing opportunities for continued professional development and by encouraging members to share their knowledge and experience within the wider profession and public domain.
through raising awareness of this deserving charity. The charity is the brainchild of Louise Russell from Glasgow. Louise explains,
‘Give a Dog a Bone… and an animal a home‘ is a young charity. Where money is a genuine barrier, the charity supports the over 60s to afford a rescue pet companion.
The aim is to support individuals through loneliness, and animals through homelessness, by removing some of the financial barriers related to owning a rescue pet and by providing companionship for the person and a much needed home for the animal.
The charity has become known as a ‘go to’ charity to find homes for animals in need, in particular when an owner is suffering from a terminal illness or, in fact, has passed over, leaving their beloved pet behind with no contingency plan in place.”
