Skulduggery is Everywhere

Posted on 20/03/2015

There is a picture of Frank Underwood here because the scheming and skulduggery that we enjoy (from the outside) in the "House of Cards" extends into every sphere of our lives, including the dog world. In my lifetime I have come to celebrate modern technology for so many reasons, from the remote control that means that I can remain seated and relaxed whilst changing channels, to the brilliant automatic washing machines that ensure that I, unlike my grandmothers, never have to dedicate a whole day to 'the laundry' but the convenience at the top of my list has to be...

Thanks To Everyone Involved in the last Amichien Bonding Courses.

Posted on 12/03/2015

Once again I am happy to report two very successful Amichien Bonding courses which came to a close only yesterday.  Thank you to Andrew Green at the Fenestra Conference Centre who (as always|) did a great job of hosting courses. Thank you also to all the office staff who organised the events in the first place and most of all, thank you to all those students who attended those courses. You were a joy to teach and that level of enthusiasm in the classroom always helps make my job easier and gives me plenty of energy to tap into (having...

The purpose of the foundation course is to create a deep understanding of the domestic dog. By looking at the principles of shaping positive behaviour, we share...

How Vulnerable Our Dogs Can Be

Posted on 03/12/2014
Filed under: Responsible Dog Ownership Common Sense Dogs Outside

As I approached the supermarket at 10.15 this morning I saw a man jerking a shopping trolley back and forth and at the same time yelling at the top of his voice.  My instincts told me to give this scene a very wide berth until I saw that the object of his anger was a terrified little dog tied to a metal post.  I ran over to the situation and quietly asked the man if the dog belonged to him, to which he gave a less than gracious reply but realising that the dog had no connection with this man...
