Many dog owners are searching for a way to enhance their relationship with their pets and for those we offer courses in Amichien® Bonding. This is the clear route to understanding why your dog does what it does and what you can do to communicate your wishes to your dog, in a way it actually understands, without resorting to force and without the use of any gadgets.
Many students who have attended our courses wish to take what they have learned further and use their knowledge to help others experiencing problems with their dogs. For those individuals we offer a route to achieve this goal.
All those wishing to become Jan Fennell Approved Dog Listeners must first complete the necessary training given in the Courses we offer;
Stage1 is the Foundation Course in Amichien® Bonding. This two day course will give you an understanding of the method and the basic communication system necessary to identify and resolve issues that may arise with your own dog/s.
2012-2013 Foundation Course fee is £460
Stage2 is completion of the Advanced Course in Amichien® Bonding. This course takes your understanding much further. You will see how to use the method with all dogs and learn, in greater depth, the subtleties of their language. There is also time spent on human psychology to help you identify when a dog's behavioural issues are actually caused by the actions of their owners. We also show how to overcome the resistance of some family members to using the method. There is a section on safety to give you the knowledge of what steps to take when you encounter an aggressive dog in an unfamiliar environment. At the end of the course there is an exam to ensure you have retained the information given. This exam must be passed in order for you to be invited onto the Graduate Course.
2012-2013 Advanced Course fee is £700
Stage3 is the Graduate Course. This is an on-line course and consists of five study modules covering the mechanics of being a dog listener. How to give your clients the service they deserve, example scenarios of working with clients and their dogs. Steps to take to ensure your business is presented in a professional manner and what documentation will be required to be successful, avoiding the pitfalls experienced by Dog Listeners in the past.
2012-2013 Graduate Course fee is £116.40.
Once qualified you will be invited to join our community and increase your knowledge further by using our Dog Listener Forum, for which quarterly administration fees apply. While you are a member of the organisation you will be required to take part in our Quality Control Programme in order to retain your approved status.
All of our Dog Listeners are proud to be involved in this monitoring process which ensures that our work continues to be of the highest standard for the benefit of our clients and their dogs.
