Welcome to the Joint Ethics Panel resource site of the
Council for Standards in Animal Behavior and Training.
This website serves as a resource to all professionals in the training and behavior field, providing information, news, and education related to professional ethics in the field.
A shared Code of Ethics is imperative to any profession, and especially to an unregulated one. Animal training and behavior are not yet regulated, and so it becomes incumbent upon leaders in the field to instate standards that protect consumers and practitioners alike.
Additionally, practitioners need a reliable location from which to gain knowledge on best practices and relied-upon professional ethics guidelines in their work.
