The love and joy that you can experience from your dog is uniquely special. In order to have that fufilling relationship, your dog has to be nurtured and taught to live in harmony and happiness with his human pack, just like a child.
At the Dog Listener Consultancy, we believe the best way to have an enriching life with your dog is through communication and cooperation, not control or conditioning, and we go beyond basic dog obedience training.
Through our many years of hands-on rescue work, we have gained much experience handling and rehabilitating dogs of all types of personalities. Our goal is to ensure that your dog willingly and happily integrates into your family environment, and understands and cooperates with the social rules.
We do it without gimmicks and gadgets, and we expound a kind way to dog training. We don’t believe in choking or electrocuting your dog into submission or harsh punishment, but through strong leadership, positive reinforcement and kind correction, your dog will willingly cooperate with you. While dogs have a basic set of behavioural traits, no two dogs are alike. As such, we treat each and every dog as a cherished individual.
At our classes and consultations, what diffentiates us from the rest is that, on top of learning the basic obedience techniques, you will also learn and apply the all important foundation principles of Amichien Bonding™ that will anchor your relationship with your dog.
We believe that dogs help make our lives so much more meaningful and whole, and we hope to help you build and achieve a fufilling, happy and enriching life with your dog.OUR GUARANTEE TO YOU
