Foundation Course

About the Foundation course

My 2 day Foundation Course is for everyone that experiences behavioural issues with their dogs but who cannot understand why those issues are happening. I will show you how the world is perceived by your dog and why traditional methods of “Dog Training” just do not make any sense to your dog.

The purpose of the Foundation Course is to create a deep understanding of the dog, then, 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.

What we will learn

For the last 30 years, we have helped thousands of dog owners all over the world achieve peace and harmony in their relationships with their best friends, by dealing with the real causes of canine behavioural issues, not just the symptoms.

My Foundation Course creates a deep understanding of the dog and, once we understand how the dog works, we can then start to shape positive, and desirable, behaviour in our friends. I will share the secrets of getting the dog to want to work for us of its own free will, not just because it has to.

Students on this course will get a fascinating and practical introduction to the world of Dog Listening. They will learn what makes a dog tick, understand exactly why dogs do what they do, and discover precisely how to successfully resolve any canine behavioural problems.

Over the course of the two days, I will give you practical ways of addressing your dog’s confusion.

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, but more importantly, the ability to appreciate ‘man’s best friend’ in an entirely different light.

The book “The Dog Listener” by Jan Fennell is not essential but would be recommended reading before attending a course.
