Welcome to the world of dog listening

Take the lead-gently the Dog Listener's way. Call Louise Pay, a highly recommend Dog Listener 925-487-9386.  

  • In- Home Consultation. Louise will come to your home, it is important to meet at your home where you and your dog act naturally. Everyone who interacts with your dog on a regular a basis should be there, although very young children do not have to be present. Please allow two to fours hours consultation (Louise will stay until you feel confident with the method). This gives you time to talk about your concerns and allows Louise to observe your dog(s) in their home environment. Working with your dog's personality and changing their reaction to the environment they find themselves in. The consultation is about helping your dog succeed, and asking your dogs for their willing cooperation. Louise will explain and demonstrate the key elements of Amichien Bonding. Provide a training/behavior shaping plan to be followed after the consultation, a plan that will guide you all. Every dog is different, and if you have more than one dog the plan is written with every dog in your pack in mind. 


  • Life long support is very a important part of the consultation, please use this. Often during the early period your dog will "ask" questions by challenging the new hierarchy. The key to a successful long term relationship is patience and consistency. This is not a quick fix, the longer the bad behavior has been going on, the longer it takes to change it. Louise will be there to support you, every step of the way days, weeks, months & years later. call 925-487-9386.


  • Please be aware that illness effects your dog's behavior, sometimes badly. Check with your dog's vet, if there has been a sudden change.


  • Please consider reading the book, "The Dog Listener" by Jan Fennell. This might save you the cost of a consultation. Reading the book is not a requirement before a consultation, just an option for you to consider. Most Libraries have at least one copy.


  • Not sure if you need a consultation. To talk about the concerns that you have for your dogs, call 925-487-9386. There is no pressure to book a consultation. Some insurance companies will pay for the consultation.
