Description

You’ve heard of the Horse Whisperer – now meet the woman who uses similar methods to train dogs.

Jan Fennell’s remarkable gifts have earned her the nickname “the dog listener”. Her unique understanding of the canine world and its instinctive language has enabled her to bring even the most desperate and delinquent of dogs to heel.

This easy-to-follow guide to understanding Jan’s simple techniques draws on her countless case histories of problem dogs – from biters and barkers to bicycle chasers – to show how we can bridge the language barrier that separates man from his best friend.

In The Dog Listener Jan shares her secrets, telling us how she grew determined to find a more compassionate alternative to standard “obedience” training techniques and ultimately how to communicate with canines.

About the author

Jan will be appearing in the New Year on Channel 5 having finished her latest Yorkshire TV series (her previous series was called Problem Pooches). This is her first book.

    Well......I read this book to try to understand the behaviour of my young whippet. I have learned much and am beginning to put some of the ideas from this very easy to read book into practice. I have realised it is ME that needs training, not the dog!! Wish me luck Jan.

    I am novice to the owning dogs and so eventually started noticing behavioural changes in my newly acquired 8 year old border collie after 2 weeks of ownership he started becoming boisterous and sometimes unpredictable. I paid hundreds of pounds on dog trainers with little effect. After reading this amazing book and applying its methods within an hour I noticed a massive improvement in my dog, Absolutely amazing results without harsh a cruel interventions you learn to communicate in a different language one the dog understands.
