Thread: Dog Trainer Courses

  1. #1

    Default Dog Trainer Courses

    Thinking of doing a dog training course in Vic Melbourne based probably distance learning as I do not live in Melbourne.

    Any recommendations etc. I want to become a dog trainer to train other people to train their dogs, problem solving that sort of thing. I have had dogs all my life mainly working dogs sheep etc.

    Thanks
    Mike

    The two main ones are DELTA and NDTF. I suggest doing BOTH. Both have hands on components and both will teach you different skills that you can use together. Nothing will beat hands on training.

    There are other courses that you can do, for example Tog Dog K9 Trainers is a great course that has hand on components as well as using positive training methods and an overview of dog behaviour
