CAPBT members are not just pet behaviourists and trainers. Members apply their knowledge to a wide range of pet related services. Whether you need a cat feeder, dog walker or groomer; a place to leave your pet whilst you are away, or help with a complex behaviour problem, members will use the EMRA technique to ensure your pets' emotional wellbeing.


EMRA stands for Emotional, Mood State and Reinforcement Assessment which:


  • Analyses how your pet feels on a day to day basis - are they fully content with life?
  • Considers their breed specific needs, whether these needs are being met and if not whether we can improve the pet's mood by including anything that may be missing.
  • Determines how your pet feels when a situation arises that may make him feel uncomfortable.
  • Provides an understanding of why your pet is continuing to perform a particular behaviour.
