New OnLine Course Dates!

Posted on 08/04/2021
Filed under: Courses

We have finally given in to demand for our courses to be delivered Via Zoom. After a recent pilot course proved successful, we are now going to offer the “Zoom” alternative for everyone that cannot attend a course at our main office in North Lincolnshire. The content on these “distance” learning courses is exactly the same as the attendance versions and all of the courses are still hosted by Jan Fennell, the original Dog Listener and creator of Amichien® Bonding. For those that wish to become Dog Listeners themselves, these courses count in exactly the same way as the attendance...

Our New "Distance" Courses

Posted on 29/03/2021
Filed under: Courses

  Last weekend we held our first “distance learning” Foundation Course, using the Zoom platform. We did have some major concerns about how this would affect the learning process and the retention of the information given to our students. However, at the end of the second day, there is a group exercise which really gives us a good insight into what our students have learned, and we were delighted to see this course was just as effective as the attendance courses. That’s great news because it means we can host more of these classes and open up the courses to people...

Two years ago, when Bronagh O’Neill came from Northern Ireland to attend both the Foundation and Advanced courses, I was introduced to the Charity ‘Rosie’s Trust’ and, as its founder, Bronagh was rightfully proud of the 150 strong volunteer group that go into the homes of owners, who are restricted or unable to care for their pets, due to ill health. This brilliant help makes it possible for people to keep their pets when otherwise they would probably have to give them up, help which in turn adds to their own wellbeing. Since we first met our relationship has blossomed,...

First Educational Course Dates Announced for 2017!

Posted on 14/11/2016
Filed under: Courses

Jan has just confirmed the first two dates for 2017 Amichien Bonding Courses.  There will be a Foundation Course in Amichien Bonding over the weekend of 4th and 5th of March and, as we frequently do, we are hosting an Advanced Course immediately after, on the 6th, 7th and 8th, for the convenience of those travelling long distances who wish to attend both events.  We think we have managed to avoid any school holidays with these dates so it will be a little more convenient for many attendees!  For anyone interested in attending either (or both) just drop us an...
