    We use his ‘pack leader’ hierarchy training regime daily and we are so amazed and grateful that they do work in actual practice !

    We are forever grateful to Ricky for helping us sort out our initial problems with Chelsea being extremely anxious when left alone

    Cheers Ricky and see you at the dog run soon !

He obviously has a real way with dogs and was able to show us how to train her to walk nicely on the leash, wait for her dinner, sit, stay, etc. He also offered excellent advice on what to feed her, how to rub her down after a walk, and what toys/chews to give her. We are planning to join Ricky’s group sessions later in the year to give Coco a refresher, so that she remembers her training as she gets older (and so that we do, as well!) Thank you, Ricky, for your calm approach,excellent advice and great training techniques. “

    Kerry Cracknell & her Singapore Special, Coco
  • ” Hey Ricky ! I’ve been wanting to bring Dexter to the dog park in AMK. There aren’t many dogs there usually but have been so worried about the journey there because it’s a half hour walk. I decided to take a leap of faith in Dex and try it.

    He impressed me ! We made it there walking past and beside people and some cats without him going nuts ! He didn’t even bark at one single person on the way there. I’m so glad that everything I learnt and applied the past few months is working great. Thanks for the helpful tips and coaching ! Next to conquer would be his reaction to dogs when on leash. Now he gets nervous but doesn’t bark anymore. Instead he decides to walk faster to avoid ! “

    Jessica Wong & her Schnauzer, Dexter
  • ” Ricky is fabulous. I am now able to pleasantly take a walk without Brodie tugging the whole time. “

    Dana Houck & her Shih Tzu, Brodie
  • ” Ricky has been incredibly helpful, it was clear from the very start that what he cared about was the well being of the animal. He’s helped me with my Doberman’s certification but also with behavioural issues with my younger dog. I Can honestly say that what he’s taught me has changed my life (and certainly that of my neighbours!) as Palo barks much much less. “

    Charlotte Kingsman & her Doberman, Leo & X hounds, Palo & Cookie
  • ” Rocky barks less now and doesn’t bark when my father serves him food, and the pacing around the house has lessened. He also doesn’t get all excited when we go over.

    -Deepti Lalchandani & her Spore Special, Duke
  • ” I would like to express my gratitude to Ricky for transforming our puppy’s behaviour. We had opted for 3 sessions of consultation in order to help us manage our rambunctious and boisterous Greyhound puppy, Evan. Prior to our consultation, we had already completed a traditional obedience training class with him.

    However, unlike majority of the class who responded fine to the methods, Evan truly resisted every single tug we administered on his choke chain. He would fight every single command we gave with a deep growl, followed by serious mouthing. Not wanting to “show him some discipline” using an electric shock collar as suggested by the previous trainer, I searched for alternative methods.

    Speaking to Ricky, I was immediately reassured to learn that my dog is not a hopeless, aggressive and stubborn beast. He was merely an over confident dog who has been misled to believe that he is the pack leader and we as his owners were just misbehaving little children who kept provoking him with all these tugging and corrections.

    Within the first session, I saw how calm and submissive my dog became when we learned to assert ourselves as his pack leader instead of the other way around. From being restrained on a lead even indoors to being given free run of the house (under supervision), it dramatically improved our relationship with Evan.

    I was pleasantly surprised that he understood and could be managed with just our voice, body language and eye contact. All these were achieved without the use of any harsh physical corrections or gadgets.

    Quickly, through the process of Amichien bonding, we got to enjoy the loving, gentle and easy-going nature of our dog. I would highly recommend Ricky to my friends and family. “

    -Fiona Lim & her Greyhound, Evan
  • ” Ricky is the best dog trainer in Singapore ! He does not use barbaric ‘old school’ training methods eg choker or electric collar. Ricky is the ‘new school’. His kindness to animals is everlasting !! “

  • ” Sparkle has become better behaved, thanks to the excellent trainer Ricky !. “

    -Tay Choon Chew & her Golden Retriever, Sparkle
  • ” I have found Ricky to be extremely knowledgeable, approachable, friendly and professional throughout the consultation process. I have almost given up hope on QT and have considered fostering her out.

    Ricky practically ‘saved’ me from committing such an unthinkable act and us from a life of misery. I was actually looking through the webpages on Caesar Milan and it was sheer luck to stumble onto Ricky’s services.

    I was also really happy to know that he was able to respond to my call almost immediately, which was helpful. When one is desperate, the timeliness of getting help was reassuring. Ricky was already very helpful on the phone, even before he’s paid! That’s value for money!:)

    Of course, he also made me feel that I’m not alone and what was more pleasant to hear was that QT’s issues were temporary and correctable and at the same time, professional enough to give me a good sense of myself.

    He did not at any time make me feel that I was a lousy dog owner, which was really nice. He was right of course and now QT is normal and adorable, no longer the ‘special needs’ dog that I thought she was. On behalf of QT and QQ, I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for improving the quality of our relationships! “

  • ” Ricky was great and I would (and have) thoroughly recommend him to my friends. Having had a very cruel dog trainer in the past, it was great to work with Ricky and I highly value his principles of no harsh methods. “

  • ” Ricky has been very patient and demonstrated care and concern for pet’s overall wellness. His techniques are practical and easy to implement. “

  • Ricky has been a great help to our family and I could not be happier with the guidance and service he is providing us. We had initially contacted him to help us with a foster dog that we were not experienced enough to manage. For complicated reasons, the foster was returned to its original owner, but we were so pleased with Ricky’s training and the Dog Listener techniques that we retained his services to help us be a better pack. And we have seen many improvements.

    As just one example, our dog had always been a reluctant eater. He was quite malnourished when we first brought him home and never took to food. However, after practicing the Feast, there has been no more bargaining at mealtime and we are delighted to have a very healthy and well-nourished pup.

    As a final note, I would like to say how much we appreciate Ricky’s leadership, not just with individual dog owners like ourselves, but in the Singapore community. My husband and I are US expats here. It is always an adjustment living and working in another country, and we have found the dog culture to be equally complex. We are very grateful to have found a trainer who demonstrates the kind of respectful relationship we like to have with our canine companions and who also has been able to help us negotiate the broader dog culture. “

  • ” I am a first time dog owner, through my trainer, Mr Ricky Yeo I’ve learnt the importance of bonding and proper caring for the little life that’s in my hands. I’ve learnt how to communicate with my puppy using ways that do not need force and tools. Amichien Bonding to me is a great way of life for me and my puppy. I have friends using anti bark collar and all sorts of things to gain control so I am really glad that I do not have to resort to those things. Mr Ricky is very patient and is an excellent teacher. I’ve learnt loads from him and I am very grateful for all the things that he had taught me. “

    -Serene Yio & her Chi Hua Hua, Wawa
  • ” This is an excellent programme as it teaches me one-on-one how to read my dog’s responses and how to better understand my dog’s behaviour as well as my dog’s body language.

    Our dog is very young (about 10 months’ old when we started the programme) and it is important to start learning how to read and handle my dog straight from the start. We had another dog who died some about one and a half years ago and we thought we could handle our new dog the same way, but we were very surprised after going through this programme that in fact we did not handle our previous dog the correct way. Great job for a great programme!”

    -Choo Yean Lin & her Spore Special, Chloe
  • ” My dog Sophie was a difficult eater before her first lesson. She would take her own sweet time over her meals which she often did not finish. What a great improvement after Ricky taught me the Amichien feeding ritual. Now she just can’t wait for her meals and has put on weight!

    Previously, Sophie frequently nipped and bit us and jumped on us too. I would say she has improved tremendously after Ricky showed us the ‘secret’ of handling her. Even my friends and neighbours have noticed she is much calmer.

    She is not barking as aggressively at passers-by. The barking period is also shorter. And she is beginning to accept my neighbours’ presence in their own gardens without making as much noise as before.

    Before Ricky introduced me to the correct way of taking Sophie out for a walk, she would be dragging me along. Now we walk or run together most of the time. I am very glad I made the decision to contact Ricky. He has helped me resolve these issues and more.

    Ricky is able to demonstrate and explain the Amichien techniques well. He patiently went through the notes which I took down and made the necessary amendments. Now that we have completed the lessons, I find it very useful to refer to them whenever I need to recall how to manage Sophie in a way that will get her to respond positively. Most of all, he was gentle with Sophie and she took to him. “

  • ” Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge it really has made a world of a difference in Rocky’s behaviour. He does get excited and jump sometimes when new people greet him, but he stops almost right away. And walking him on the lead is now such a breeze, he doesn’t pull anymore unless he sees a piece of bread on the ground, but other than that he is very good on the lead. “

    -Junia Djojonegoro & her Labrador, Rocky
  • ” Thank you for the process by which we now have a calm dog! We found it really interesting and helpful and are glad to be in control of the situation now. Monti is much happier too. Hope you have lots and lots of success with other dogs, and their owners. “

    -Meg Eladm & her Labrador Cross, Monti
  • ” Ricky has a very clear, gentle manner with our dog (and with us!). Julie is a 5 year old female who has some extremely difficult behaviours and fears to overcome; Ricky has been very detailed and articulate about training her, about our own behaviours, and also how we can support Julie through diet and nutrition changes. It will be a long process until Julie begins to feel completely comfortable in her new environment, but we are very grateful to have the lifetime backup service – and most of all we are thankful to have met Ricky, who has impressive, longtime experience and expertise in dealing with strays and rescued dogs in Singapore. ” Read about Julie’s story here

  • “I am very glad I chose this programme for Bradley. I am confident in using the techniques taught in a meaningnful way and it has enabled us to understand his behaviour. Also we are thankful that Ricky attended to all my doubts. This program has enabled Bradley to be calm and loving. We appreicate the assistance given to us. Thank you.”

    -Vishaalini & her Spore Special, Bradley
  • ” Thanks to your program, for the past 3 days, I have been able to successfully get Mogu to pee in the pee tray after our reunion. Mogu will usually follow me into the toilet, once i touch his pee tray, he will sniff and pee on it. If you have new courses for dog training, please do let me know. It has been very helpful for both human and dog. Thank you and really appreciate all the kind advice.”

    -Aizhen & her Schanuzer, Mogu
  • ” Ricky is fabulous. He presents the techniques in a simple manner that is easy to implement. He is patient and understanding. I was able to implement the techniques with a limited schedule with Ricky’s advice. “

    -Jennifer Harmon & her German Shepherd, Max
  • ” I am very pleased with the trainer, Ricky Yeo, who displayed professionalism throughout the 3 training sessions. He is patient and is clear in his explanations. My dog has shown improvements in the house after the first training session. “

    -May Wong & her Labrador, Dexter
  • ” Blanket is doing quite well since our last session. Although he still barks at the neighbours, he responds when we call him and ceases his barking immediately. I must say that it has been a most satisfying experience for us and we will surely recommend this service to any of our friends who may need help with their fur babies “

    -Violet Leong & her Japanese Spitz, Blanket
  • ” Ricky has helped my family tremendously in training my puppy who was quite a problem puppy to me. Thanks to Ricky and the methods he taught us, my puppy which started off with bad biting habits stopped giving us as many bad bites. We are still working on the 4 principles with our puppy and continue to see improvement in him”

    -Ashlyn Chen & her Scottish Terrier, Bacon
  • ” I was really glad to chance upon Ricky Yeo while he was conducting a group class at Vivo City, Singapore. I was impressed with the way he teaches & with the responses from the dogs & dog owners.

    I have been looking around for a suitable course for my unruly dog who acts like King in the house (which my daughter called a ‘terrorist’ as he was terrorizing us everyday). A few other courses I saw do not quite satisfy my needs or are too expensive.

    Ricky recommended the home consultation verses the group course as he feels it would be more beneficial and indeed it is. Even though it is more expensive than the group course, it is really money well spent!

    Ricky has been really patient & helpful. He not only taught what he should teach for the program but also taught us many additional tricks to counter our dogs’ & given some eye-popping suggestions (which we never knew or heard of) when he came to our flat for the training and we are grateful for that.

    He also gave tips on how to teach our dog to be more obedient & co-operative in our daily living eg. to block up his ‘den/stronghold’ behind our sofa, how to stop him from attacking our mop, how to punish without violence, etc!

    We get solid one to one attention & demonstration on how & what to do. He also watches us do the training & correct us when it is not done properly. I could see changes in my dog just 3 days after the 1st consultation and it is a miracle that our little terrorist is starting to relinquish his alpha throne to us, finally !!

    There was also tremendous improvement on the basics sit, down & especially staying put and in all other areas as well ! We were really impressed at our dog’s vast improvement over such a short period of time. That goes to show that proper training can really do wonders ! Now we don’t get the feeling of wanting to kill our dog half the time because we got ourselves a ‘new’ dog! “

    -Helen Seah & her Sheltie X, Porsche
  • ” We have found “Amichien Bonding” theory is so remarkable. We are so pleased our loved dog, Diana’s progress. She has stopped mouthing and acted much calmly. After the consultations by Ricky Yeo, we have got much clear idea and very practical way to treat her. We would like to say big thank you to Ricky who instructed us how to make better relations with Diana. “

    -Yoko Okumura & her Spore Special, Diana
  • ” This has definitely been the most effective ‘training’method, and I have tried lots ! I really appreciate the concept of learning to communicate with my dog in her language rather than training her like a circus monkey to ‘perform’, using things like the choke chain which I dread ! I do feel so much closer to Bronte now, like we reached a greater understanding.”

    -Siao Sze & her Spore Special, Bronte
  • ” We contacted Ricky as we had some issues with our expanding pack. We had 2 female dogs for over 4 years. We then adopted our male dog, Louie in 2011 and we were having some integration issues.

    We have tried other training techniques previously but the principles taught by Ricky have by far been the most effective. We noticed an immediate improvement in the behaviour and harmony of the dogs and following on we have stuck with the program and are very happy with the results. We would be very happy to recommend Ricky’s services in future. “

  • ” The consult session was conducted in a very professional manner. Ricky took time to understand the issues and challenges I was facing with Mocha and offered useful advice which was easy to understand and apply. I am glad to see positive outcomes and am continuing to apply what I have learnt through the consult session. I would thoroughly recommend Ricky to any dog owner seeking help to address any dog behavioural issues “

    -Geraldine Yeo and her Spore Special, Mocha
  • ” It was a miracle that my dog totally changed to a different dog from a restless, hostile, non-stop barking to any new objects or foreigner, and aggressive dog, to a calm and relaxed and cooperative dog, starting the very next morning after Ricky’s 3 hr consultation. Ricky provided solutions & tips that are working. We and our dog are very happy about our relationship now. Many thanks to Ricky ! “

    -Carol Chu and her beagle, Lucky
  • ” The training has helped me understand and learn about my dog better as well as to know how to react when unpleasant situations arise. Also, I have seen improvements in Toto’s behaviours ever since we applied Ricky’s methods “

  • ” The training was extremely useful, well explained and made an awful lot of sense. Results have been achieved from the first day and have continued to come. Moonlight and I are getting along famously “

  • ” Since our last correspondence, things have gone better and better on the whole. Joni is quite relaxed when we have visitors, she even rested her head on the laps of our friends who came to visit and they adore her.

    We also tried to take her outside our area, so we have been to Botanic Garden, Bishan Park and West Coast Park and during all those walks we met a lot of other dogs.

    Believe it or not she is actually really good to those dogs, not a single bark and in fact she sniffed at them and carried on walking once the sniffing rituals have become a bit boring. If you asked me a couple of months ago, I would never think that we could achieve this.”

    -Anne Inglis & her JRT, Jonie
  • ” Overall the course is good, was able to see improvement in my communication to Snowy, probably with more practice things will get better “

  • ” It has been helpful in day to day interaction with my dogs “

  • ” The trainer has excellent knowledge and provided effective advice to us “

  • ” The one on one consultation was very valuable up front as we were able to instill behaviour as soon as we brought her home. The course has been a great follow up, complements and builds on the one on one session. The course has also helped with Abby’s bonding with other dogs and people and has helped her behaviour around distractions.”

  • ” The trainer was very good and the techniques really helped Donut’s development “

    Jasmine Neo and her Shih Tzu, Toffee
  • ” Great course ! The trainer’s knowledge and patience is excellent. This course not only helped our dog but it was beneficial for the humans as well. The techniques are very effective and we will endeavour to continue practising “
