    I think it really depends on what you want to learn about.

    The Delta course is more expensive than the NDTF course.

    I just want to learn... stuff lol. As much as I can about everything! The reason the NDTF course caught my eye was because it said you learnt about health care, behaviour, etc as well as training. The fact that it is all done outside of working hours was handy too.

    Hmmm.... perhaps I'll just go get a bunch of books and make up my own course for myself!

    I've been looking at doing the "training in drive" course with the K9force/K9Pro mob. They're doing a one day seminar course in my town in May. And they say they will help from beginners to more experienced dogs and owners. Frosty manages to be a beginner and more experienced dog at the same time. I reckon if I understand training in drive and how to get her to work for a tug play or similar I will get much better results quicker. Cos she's never all that committed to working for food - no matter how delicous it is.

    I don't know how much that course costs though. K9Force/K9 Pro are on the list of NDTF trainers and schools.

    Our TAFE runs dog training courses too. Particularily for training herding dogs but for other work as well. You could check what they've got. Cost is usually value for money.

    and the Delta is a training course as well - and you only learn their ways of training, NDTF show you everything, and let you make your mind up.. Delta say "this is what we do, you have no choice but to do the same"

    Not quiet right. You learn about different training methods but of course they only use positive reinforcement for training and expect you to do the same. Which I think makes sense because it is beyond me why anyone would want to use anything else.....

    Sometimes other methods are needed for optimum results with the training.

    I have to be very firm with Batty and would probably get booted from any Delta training school - just for growling at him. If I don't growl when he's doing something bad and I do ignore him the behaviour stays the same. He doesn't care that much that I'm ignoring him.

    I hope that helps to explain the situation a bit better.

    ETA: You should always ensure you have as much information about as many different training methods as possible. There is NO such thing as one method works for every dog, if you believe that then you are lost already
