ALL UK TOWNS, U.K. - Nov. 26, 2015 - PRLog -- Mark is a familiar face on TV and is well known for his work on dog-related TV programmes, including the Channel 4 series, Pet Rescue, BBC1’s Barking Mad, and Pedigree Dogs Exposed.  His latest project, Dogs: Their Secret Lives, aired on channel 4 earlier this year and revealed the challenges that the modern day pet dog faces in the 21st century.  He is also the author of the series of ‘How to look after’ pet care books focusing on the needs, welfare and care of pets such as cats, dogs, fish, birds, rabbits and guinea pigs.

Commenting on accepting his new role, Mark said: “I’m extremely honoured to be the APBC’s first patron.  I have a holistic interest in animal welfare and the quality of life that animals enjoy is determined by both their physical health and their mental wellbeing – the two are inextricably linked. I think it is incredibly important that the worlds of animal behaviour counselling and veterinary science work together and that owners have easy access to appropriately qualified and experienced animal behaviour counsellors whose work is underpinned not just by experience and common sense, but also by science.  Amazingly, the field of companion animal behaviour counselling remains unregulated, formally.  But, over the last 25 years, the APBC has created a trusted network of practical behaviour experts that work to a strict code of practice and always in collaboration with the veterinary profession”.

The APBC is a not for profit organisation whose members help resolve behaviour problems in companion animals ranging from dogs, cats and horses to birds and reptiles.  In recognition of the critical link between behaviour and physical health, its international network of experienced behaviour counsellors works on referral from veterinary surgeons.  The Association continues to recognise that a strong link between the veterinary surgeon and the behaviourist is essential in all cases, and it is a membership requirement that all members must work solely on veterinary referral.

Rosie Barclay, chairperson of APBC, said: “We are delighted to welcome Mark as our first ever patron.  His passion and commitment to improving companion animal welfare is exemplary and mirrors the ethics of the APBC.

“Mark has really helped bring the science behind companion animal behaviour problems to the attention of the public, championing the use of behaviour modification techniques to help manage and solve behaviour issues in family pets.  We could not wish for a better first patron.”
