Jan Fennell

I've just finished a 2 day Foundation Course with Jan Fennell the Dog Listener. It was really rewarding being a part of her class. I have her books and her dvds, but there's just nothing like hearing it from the source. She also went through her research with wolves, through which she developed the methods for Amichien Bonding. Truelly enlightening, and it all makes sense. Its just unconventional and you have to unlearn all the things that we were taught about training dogs. Her way gives the dog a chance to think for itself and learn what is the desired behaviour without force or provocation. She was inspired by Monty Roberts, the Horse Whisperer, who has done amazing work with horses.
I could go on, but what I will just say is: any dog lover or potential dog owner should read her books and watch her dvds. you will learn so much and you will be rewarded with a well adjusted, happy and stress free dog.
