Fellowship of Animal Behaviour Clinicians

Find a Behaviourist
More InformationMeet All Our Members

FABC believe that clinical animal behaviourists should be highly qualified, highly experienced and work to the highest ethical standards, following up-to-date scientific techniques. This means all of our Certificated Members are independently accredited and conform to the regulatory standards set by the umbrella body, the Animal Behaviour and Training Council (ABTC).

Currently, the only route to external, independent accreditation is through the Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour’s CCAB (Certificated Clinical Animal Behaviourist) scheme. Our Certificated Members have all met the standard required for CCAB.

All of FABC’s Candidate Members are working towards CCAB accreditation.  A list of all our members can be found here.  Some of our Candidate Members are established Clinical Animal Behaviourists, who have already achieved the clinical standard set by the regulatory umbrella body, ABTC, and are listed on the ABTC register. These practitioners have chosen to undertake the external accreditation offered by ASAB and are preparing for final assessment.

For members of the public and referring veterinary staff seeking high quality behaviour advice, FABC have created the list below.  It shows the location of each of our members available to take on cases from the public. Species for which members are ABTC listed but not yet CCAB are indicated in Brackets with the words ABTC CAB.
