    I have received an email this evening confirming that i have successfully passed my final test and am now officially an ADTB Graduate! WOO HOO!!!
    I can now crack on with getting my training and behaviour modification business up and running!

    For those of you considering working with dogs, whether it be as a trainer, kennel assistant, behaviourist or dog walker/pet sitter i can thoroughly recommend the courses. there are six in total. its up to you how many you do. they are easy to follow and understand, give a great insight into how dogs think and why they behave the way they do. there is great support from the online community of trainers, students and moderators and the courses are really reasonably priced.

    That's really broadened your horizon! How long did it take you to complete the course? I can see it was well worth it :)

    i have been working on it about 5 hrs a day for the last 3 months. not long at all really but i do have a lot of prior knowledge and my business plan was already in place so that kind of gave me a head start. i wanted to complete it fairly quickly to have my qualification in place before i launch in the late summer. there is no time limit on the course....it all depends on how much you already know, how much time you have to spend on it, and how many of the six parts you wish to take.

    I did have a look! I would be interested, not perhaps to train in future but to extend my knowledge. Which, it seems, I could do at my own pace. A trainer at a club I went to years ago with Merlin was qualified by these courses - I can't fault her tuition, but I fell out with the club management. She's listed for my area on the members page.

    if you just want to broaden you knowledge rather than run a business i would just do the course on how dogs think and the puppy course. :thumbup:

    LOL I will probably do the lot - on the premise there is NO SUCH THING as too much knowledge :)

    Too right! If I could do it without exhausting myself, I would still be learning! You go for it! ;) The world needs more people prepared to learn about canine behaviour!

    i couldnt agree more! the more we know and understand the better our dogs lives will be. education is the key to wiping out some of the horrible stuff that goes on in the canine world!

    next stop for me.... canine behaviour diploma!
