Question Good beginning training resources

I've trained before, but it's been a long time. My methods are more the traditional type, but I want to try to change. I don't have money for courses or paid videos etc. So, I figured I'd ask you guys if there are some good (free) online resources on training. Video is ok, though I prefer written as my speakers are not behaving... I want to go with positive training methods, particularly since my foster dog has been badly abused. Thanks.

Default may be a great option for you. Yes, it's a pay site but it is a lot for your money and maybe your rescue would be interested in paying for the betterment of your foster.

Thanks for the suggestions. Money is a problem for the rescue too at the moment. It is a very "young" rescue... and is still sorting itself out. I might get some money one of these days, but at the moment am very broke... I hate money :/

At least Dekka found a treat that Elwood will likely work with, so that's a big plus as so far he's shown little interest. It will be a challenge to rework all his behaviours. He still shows "automatic" fear responses even for little stuff. Thank goodness he's 100% non-aggressive. I don't want to know what the poor boy has been through... Poor boy. I know I'm not the perfect person for him, but I will try my best.
