Can Amichien™ Bonding help with any breed
Yes, because Amichien™ Bonding uses the dog's natural
instinct and is, therefore, not breed specific.
What can Amichien™ Bonding do for my dog?
Amichien™ Bonding can help with many dog
behaviour problems, for example, separation anxiety, pulling
on the lead, aggression, jumping up, barking, chewing the furniture,
following you around the house, and many other forms of undesirable
behaviour, all of which are linked to your dog believing it
What is the difference between Amichien™
Bonding and Dog Training?
Amichien™ Bonding is not dog training, we
are not training the dog. The dog has been using the language
I teach you for centuries, it has just been given a name. It
is a holistic natural stress free way of communicating with
your dog without the use of any training gadgets. Your dog will
want to work with you of ITS OWN FREE WILL.
There are so many other training methods, why use
Amichien™ Bonding, what makes it better?
There are other training methods, there are gadget
based training i.e. whistles, clickers, electric collars, collars
that spray various substances at the dog, collars that emit
noise, collars with spikes that stick into the dogs neck. There
are also different ways of training the dog, you have the traditional
'make him do it' approach, endless repetition until the dog
is bored senseless, then there is the good old walking round
in a circle in a church hall with 15 other dogs and a dog trainer.
This teaches the dog to walk in a circle with other dogs, usually
on leaving the hall most dogs revert to their previous behaviour.
These systems work to a greater or lesser degree but one thing
is constant, they are all unnatural.
Amichien™ Bonding otherwise known as Canine Communication
is understanding your dogs behaviour and working with the dogs
natural instincts therefore allowing the dog to use self control.
Why can't my dog learn our language?
It is often believed that we have to train our
dogs to our way of thinking, words like obedience or discipline
spring to mind, a dog does not understand our language and certainly
does not understand being shouted at for doing the 'wrong' thing,
all the dog picks up on is your stress level at that particular
Amichien™ Bonding is all about communicating with dogs
in their own language, after all we are the more intelligent
species, why should we expect dogs to live by our logic.
If it is not training, how do I teach my dog right
Every time your dog does something right, you
reward him and make positive associations, when he does something
unacceptable you teach consequence of action. From a dogs perspective,
there is no such thing as bad behaviour, it is our perception
and what we feel acceptable often distorts our judgment, for
example, chewing the furniture when you are not at home actually
calms the stress of losing you, dogs are not intentionally badly
behaved creatures. If dogs believe they are leader, they are
responsible for their pack, but living in a world they do not
understand is, not surprisingly, very stressful for them, that
stress can manifest itself in many different ways depending
on the personality of the dog. By showing the dog leadership,
he will no longer need to look after you.
Using Amichien™ Bonding the dog is shown how to behave
rather than the owner trying to control their behaviour with
With Amichien™ Bonding being a natural method
- can I still train my dog agility or teach him tricks?
Absolutely, Amichien™ Bonding is the foundation
on which you can build other activities onto. When your dog
chooses to elect you as leader, with this comes respect and
trust from your dog, so the additional activities you can do
with your dog is endless.
Is the work you do a dog behaviourist or dog psychologist?
No, if anything I am an owner behaviourist, because it is the
signals that I teach you the owner when in contact with your
dog that will lead you both to a happy and fulfilling life together.
Many behaviourists, dog psychologists or dog trainers control
the dogs behaviour, with Amichien™ Bonding we are working
with the nature of the dog, we are getting the dog to choose
its owner as leader of its own free will and because it believes
in you, you can invite the dog to co-operate with you.
