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 foundation for all Amichien Bonding is “The4”. These four elements are the building blocks for successfully addressing behavioural issues with your dog and is probably the most important audio we provide.

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...

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...

Now and again I hear a story that makes me angry and sad at the same time and the experience of one of my recommended, experienced, and very respected Dog Listeners, is a case in point. She was asked to help with a comparatively young dog and happily went to the home of the family concerned. She shared her valuable information and left the happy owner and dog now on the right track. The owner wrote to us to let us know of her joy with the quality of my colleague’s professional help. This was many months ago but now the...
