COAPE offers dedicated, regulated and independently accredited professional training programmes in companion animal behaviour and behaviour therapy.


Our training programmes will help prepare you properly and to gain nationally recognised qualifications to pursue a successful career in this highly rewarding field. As an independent course provider, COAPE understands the importance of giving you the information you need to make an informed decision about which of our courses might be right for you.


Some of COAPE's courses lead to UK Regulated Qualifications. Many components are also taught on courses presented by COAPE tutor Prof Peter Neville at The Department of Animal Sciences, The Ohio State University, USA. FACT: No organisations, professional bodies or qualifications exist in the United Kingdom that govern, restrict, protect or bestow the legal right to practise pet behaviour therapy in the same way as veterinary and human medicine.

"I have undertaken a huge amount of CPD over the last 20 years in teaching, vet nursing, behaviour and biology. I have used the Open University, two 'bricks and mortar' universities, various vet industry providers and is COAPE I come back to and COAPE I recommend to anyone wanting to dip their toe in behaviour." Helen Hitchings
