'A dog convinced against its will, is of the same opinion still.'
When we tap into the correct way of thinking, there’s a world of opportunity to help us teach our dogs get it right without using fear, force, dominance or any gadgets invented by humans.
This method is about learning the language of the dog, so that we can demonstrate that we have got what it takes to have the responsibility and they don't need to stress or worry about us in a world they don't understand. Using this method consistently with my own dog and many others I have seen remarkable results.
I truly believe that this simple method of working with a dog makes absolute sense and enables us to truly live in harmony with our beloved pets.
In the past, I have taken the traditional obedience training with my own dogs. On reflection, I now realise, that approach seems to plaster over the root causes of why our dogs display certain behaviours. Dog Listening is a holistic approach which deals with the cause not the effect. This method will work with any non-medical behaviour issue, and I’m excited to teach this approach with my clients and their furry friends.
I have trained and qualified with Jan Fennell and her proven methods of understanding the inner workings of dogs’ minds and how to live in harmony with our beloved pets. Her methods ensure that dogs live a stress free life and, by making a few changes consistently, they willingly follow you because they have confidence in you.
Jan Fennell's work is based on over 30 years research. After working with Monty Roberts: 'The horse whisperer', she studied wolf packs in Yellow Stone Park and developed her approach which is now known worldwide. For me, this method makes perfect sense, and in my experience to date: it works!
