Course Description


This  Advanced Amichien® Bonding Course, led by Mervi Kärki, is better understood if the delegate has first taken the 2 day Foundation Course and becomes essential if the delegate wishes to be considered for a career as a Jan Fennell International Dog Listener.

The careful design of this course makes it possible for the delegate to progress naturally and with empathy to an in depth understanding of ‘Amichien® Bonding’ and its application with common behavioural problems.

We also look at the difficulties experienced by dog carers, from breaking with old thinking to actually working with their dogs in a confident manner and to achieve this we will also look at human psychology.

For those delegates considering a career in Dog Listening there will be a written examination at the end of the course. The exam will be based entirely on the information contained in the recommended reading of ‘The Dog Listener’ (or the watching of the DVD of that title), combined with the information provided in both the two and three day courses. As our organisation works to a high ‘Quality Control’ system it is essential, for the success of both the organisation and the candidate that we ascertain the level of an individual’s basic understanding of the process ‘Amichien® Bonding’ and questions will be marked and scored accordingly.

Success at this stage will result in an invitation from this organisation to take part in the ‘Graduate’ stage of the process of becoming a ‘Jan Fennell International Dog Listener’, which will result in access to the entire Dog Listening Team, which provides all members with on-going support, learning, referrals and a place on the role of JFIDL’s worldwide.


For more information about this course, or to book, simply type the location and date of the course in an email and send it to Mervi: at mervi@hundinspiration.se 

The total cost for the three days is £749.00 and a deposit of £200.00 will secure your spot.
