The National Dog Trainers Federation (NDTF) was established in 1993 as a representative and educational organisation for the dog training industry.

The Federation is now the national representative body in Australia for dog trainers from all fields.

Trainers of obedience dogs, sporting dogs , gun dogs, law enforcement dogs, detector and quarantine dogs, search and rescue, behaviour consultants etc are all represented by the NDTF.

One of our major aims is to provide a channel of communication for all dog trainers, resulting in ongoing education and mutual support. We also act as an adviser to Government, (State, Federal and Local), industry and the private sector.

Membership to the Federation has a wide range of benefits including formal recognition and accreditation to both the public and your peers in your area/s of expertise.

We encourage trainers to work together to promote higher levels of professionalism, integrity and communication.

The NDTF promotes and provides ongoing education in the many specialist fields of dog behaviour and training.
