Course Description

COURSE INFORMATION: The purpose of the foundation course, led by Julie Abbott is to create a deep understanding of the domestic 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 solutions, examination of different situations, behaviours and how to address undesirable behaviours. 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 of attendance, and more importantly, the ability to appreciate "man's best friend" in an entirely different light. The book entitled "The Dog Listener" by Jan Fennell is highly recommended reading before booking a course.

COURSE RUNS FROM 9.30AM TO 4.30PM DAILY

 The total cost of this two day Course is £495.00 GBP, with a deposit of £200.00 GBP payable on booking and the balance payable within 1 month of the Course date. The pre Course booklet sent out to applicants includes recommended accommodation and directions.
