AB® isn't obedience training. It's far better!
Consultations take place in the privacy of your own home with all members of the household who have regular contact with the dog(s). This allows me to see the dog in its own environment, behaving naturally, as well as being able to see the relationship between the people and dog. The family then learns about the true nature of their dog and the all-important Four Rituals that dogs instinctively engage in, enabling the family to understand their dog's behavior and gain the knowledge that allows them to see the world through their dog's eyes, something that brings immediate clarity to behaviors that, up until that point, may have been not only frustrating, but very confusing. We then work through all of the dog's behaviors using the simple tools that have just been introduced, giving an immediate hands-on experience that lets owners take the reins immediately by have solid practice in using them.
Consultations generally take at least 3 hours. When they are finished, you will have in hand your family's Action Plan with clear steps on what is needed to apply Amichien® Bonding with your dog. I will also leave with you a copy of "The Dog Listener" DVD for you to keep for your continued use for review and reference.
Approximately two weeks after the consultation a follow-up meeting takes place, either by phone or by Skype (although I'm readily available for questions before this), wherein progress is discussed, as well as answering any questions or issues that have arisen since the consultation. After this, the family receives lifetime backup support from me by phone, email, text or Skype. As we know, "life happens", changes come, dogs leave our lives and new ones enter, so lifetime support means that whatever comes, you will be able to get answers when you need them for your dog's behaviors.
Cost is a one-time fee of $325. Mileage fees may apply, and the first 50 miles are free.
I serve Vermont and the surrounding Northeastern states, as well as anywhere my services are needed, although travel costs must be paid by the client.
I highly recommend that my clients obtain a copy of Jan Fennell's book, "The Dog Listener" as well, which gives an even more detailed background of Amichien® Bonding; and how Jan came to develop this method, one she has shared in England and internationally for almost 30 years, transforming people's lives with their dogs, one family at a time.
