What is Amichien Bonding®
Amichien Bonding® was developed by Jan Fennell, internationally known as “The Dog Listener”. The process enables you to understand your dog’s behaviour and teaches you the dog’s natural language, so that you can successfully communicate with your dog. It uses a gentle yet effective approach that does not require force or gadgets.

How is a Jan Fennell Dog Listener different from a Dog Trainer or Dog Behaviourist?
Jan Fennell Dog Listeners understand and work with the dogs natural instincts to help the dog change its behaviour of its own free will. The dog is shown how to behave in a way it understands rather than you trying to control their behaviour. Dog Trainers and Dog Behaviourists work to control the dog’s behaviour, sometimes by the use of force or gadgets.

How long will it take for my dog to change its behaviour?
This is not a quick fix or a one off solution as dogs never stop needing the right information from us, they never stop learning and every day is different. In the world of dogs, you are not voted leader for life, you earn the dog's respect daily, so even when you have bonded and your dog trusts you to make the decisions, your routine will have to be maintained. However using Amichien Bonding® is easy and once you have learned the techniques it becomes second nature.

When should I start Amichien Bonding®?
It is never too soon to bond with your dog. In an ideal world you would start as soon as you bring your new puppy or new dog home. Using Amichien Bonding® is the best way to show your new puppy or new dog that they can place their trust in you from the very start, to show them in a way they understand that you are responsible for their welfare, and that they can trust you to fulfill that responsibility. Imagine, there is nothing more wonderful than to give your dog a whole lifetime of trusting and believing in you.

What if I have a rescue dog or my dog is older?
It doesn’t matter. Whatever the age or breed of your dog, it is still a dog! It is never too late to take the first step towards understanding your dog, improving their behaviour and your relationship. For rescue dogs and older dogs, the process is the same.

How can Amichien Bonding® work to help any canine behaviour problem?
Amichien Bonding® works for any non-medical canine behaviour problem because it treats the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms.

Can I still take my dog to Dog Training or Dog Agility?
Yes definitely, by using Amichien Bonding® you will have already built the foundations of a wonderful relationship with your dog. You can then take your dog to agility competitions, compete in field trials, working tests, obedience, tracking, showing – anything at all, your dog will trust you wherever you go and whatever you do.

Your dog is a dog, not a human, so why use human language? Whatever the age or breed of your dog, I can teach you to communicate with them using their own language.
