Julie Abbott's Essex Foundation Course
Posted on 26/08/2014
Last weekend saw the first UK "Jan Fennell Foundation Course in Amichien Bonding" hosted by one of our most senior Dog Listeners, Julie Abbott.

Kes was one of Tony’s dogs and the oldest of his “pack” and his placid, stoic character will be so sorely missed. Kes taught Tony so much about the dog's point of view and his loss is devestating for both Tony and Jan. Kes spent a lot of time at JF headquarters (Pond Farm) and was such a wonderful companion to the rest of the crew, his calming influence on the rest of the amichien...
