Jan has just confirmed the first two dates for 2017 Amichien Bonding Courses. There will be a Foundation Course in Amichien Bonding over the weekend of 4th and 5th of March and, as we frequently do, we are hosting an Advanced Course immediately after, on the 6th, 7th and 8th, for the convenience of those travelling long distances who wish to attend both events.

Following on from the last article, here is another page from the same publication where Nan relates her experience of the trip and some of the things she was lucky enough to see...
The Wagging Tail
Posted on 02/06/2016
During one of our recent ‘Foundation Courses’ the question about the significance of a dog wagging its tail came up again, a signal which can often be misunderstood. The common mistake is assuming that the wagging tail is a sign of a friendly, happy mood, even an invitation to play, Knowing the truth; that a wagging tail is just an indication of heightened excitement, will help owners avoid problems in trying to keep their dogs happy and safe when encountering other dogs. Dogs have been seen wagging their tails just before they fight and in the same way a playing...
