The love and joy that you can experience from your dog is uniquely special and cannot be described, only experienced. 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 ASD Dog Listener Academy, we believe the best way to have an enriching life with your dog is through communication and cooperation, not conditioning. Through our many years of rescue work, we have gained much experience handling and rehabilitating dogs of all types of personality from the highly dominant to the fearful withdrawn. 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, and your dog, like yourself, will have his own unique personality traits and habits. As such, we treat each and every dog as a cherished individual.
At our Basic Obedience Foundation 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 (TM) Bonding that will anchor your relationship with your dog.
Special emphasis will also be placed on individually assessing your dog’s character as well as your relationship with him, and focus will be placed on the areas that will help strenghten your bond with your dog. Time will also be allocated at the end of the class to handle any individual questions or issues.
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.
