Course Description

jan fennell course

The 2-day Foundation Course, hosted by Julie Abbott gives a fascinating and practical introduction to the world of Dog Listening. Students will learn what makes a dog tick, understand exactly why dogs do what they do and discover precisely how to successfully solve canine problems.

The purpose of the Foundation Course is to create a deep understanding of the dog. By looking at the principles of shaping positive behaviour, we share the secrets of getting the animal to want to work for us of its own free will, not because it has to.

We examine the psychology, behaviour patterns, instincts and values of the domestic dog. We show how, with this understanding, we are able to change undesirable behaviour the kind way. There will be comprehensive analysis of the core method that is Amichien® Bonding: with examples of common problems and in-depth discussions on kind correction, examination of situations, behaviours and correction of undesirable behaviour.

This course is highly beneficial, not only to those who experience problems with their dogs, but for ALL dog owners and people who work with dogs. On the completion of the course trainees will receive a certificate, and above all the ability to appreciate 'man’s best friend' in an entirely different light. 

The Book entitled "The Dog Listener" by Jan Fennell is recommended reading before booking a course.
