Canine communication and human education.


Louise was born in England and grew up in Warwickshire, the heart of England. Some family members still live there.

The Pay family has lived on three continents, including spending three years living in Hong Kong, which they loved.

San Ramon in the San Francisco East Bay, is now their home.

Having worked with dogs for many years using the traditional method, Louise was thrilled to find a copy of The Dog Listener by Jan Fennell. The book changed not only her dog's life, but hers as well.

Louise is a Dog Listener in California, the San Francisco Bay Area. Working with clients privately, helping rescue groups, and other organizations. Amichien bonding is the gentle way to change your dogs behavior. (Dog training based in San Ramon and covering, northern CA).

"Gadgets block learning, it's that simple. The dog does not think for itself, and when it matters the most to the dog it reverts to the old behaviour. AB enables a dog to think & get it right.” Louise, Dog Listener.
