The International School for Canine Psychology & Behaviour Ltd

About Us

The ISCP is considered one of the top 10 education providers. We educate students of canine behaviour in the most up to date methods and place a strong emphasis on positive dog training and rehabilitation. Seminars, talks and workshops aim to increase your understanding and provide opportunities for face to face question and answer sessions. The Diploma course (also available as a module course) is based on discoveries made through the latest scientific research and the founder’s extensive experience of successfully working with many dogs from all breeds and backgrounds.

Dogs have been our helpmates and companions for many thousands of years, and their evolution has taken place alongside ours. They are hard-wired to bond with us, and have an extraordinary ability to understand our subtle signals and body language. Through the ISCP courses you will learn to ‘read’ dogs and to discover how and why dogs respond to humans, other animals and the environment.

The International School for Canine Psychology & Behaviour Ltd (ISCP) has a reputation for excellence, with students and graduates in over 57 countries whose work with dogs has enriched the lives of many people and their animal companions. The ISCP is member of UK Rural Skills, a not for profit company whose main purpose is to enrich rural communities by providing an accreditation and certification service through high quality, professionally delivered training. We are a founder committee member of ICAN, the International Companion Animal Network, an umbrella body for purely force free organisations and education providers that sets and upholds high standards for its members.
