Welcome | Jan Fennell the Dog Listener

In addition to her books and DVD, Fennell has her own TV show explaining the understanding of dogs and demonstrating successful interventions, currently playing on Animal Planet on Friday nights. He is motivated by getting the good stuff in life – sea biscuits, cuddles, attention, play and so on – and avoiding the bad stuff which in his world is the absence of the good stuff.

Her training method is based on the theory that dogs, being descended from wolves, fit the social model of the lishener – an ordered hierarchy with a clearly defined leader.

The leadership concept is different to the dominance concept as it’s based on something you earn not something you demand by force. Mar 6, Messages: Thoughts on “training” the Jan Fennell way ;D When does puppy arrive?

I am beside myself – that I might actually be involved in a movie quote! And bulk order sea biscuits. You are never meant to be harsh or abusive but the idea I think is that the dog responds to you as a leader and knows you have everything covered; it is safe.


Thoughts on “training” the Jan Fennell way I do remember one phrase from the Jan Fennel book that described the difference between leadership and dominance – it was something about “you need to act in such a way that, if a leadership election was called tomorrow, your dogs would vote for you to be the leader”. OberonJun 11, That is, you might be told that there is ‘one right way’ to do things, based on the theory.

I want you all to live around the corner from me. JulieTJun 12, This is not achieved by dominance from the handler in an aggressive way, indeed the handler must remain calm and quietly in control.

As I understand it limited knowledge the handler takes away the stress and responsibility that comes with the dog being the pack leader, by making all of the decisions. Thoughts on “training” the Jan Fennell way I’m just guessing here but you might find that if the trainer has a particular theory that the training methods are based on then tne might be a few more rules for the humans too.

Look at me, I know nothing! Seems to be a kind and thoughtful approach based on observation of the dog’s behaviour so I wouldn’t think you’d run into any problems with harsh techniques.

Fennell argues that most inappropriate dog behavior arises if the owner does not consistently signal that he or she is ‘pack leader’. She believes that dogs are unable to understand any other social model, and when co-opted into human families as pets still see themselves as pack members. Yes, my password is: Thoughts on “training” the Jan Fennell way Thanks Pippa, it seems a bit grey actually; I think she promotes the pack theory but my understanding is that its not dominance but leadership that she espouses.

Thoughts on “training” the Jan Fennell way

I’d lstener be prepared to go along with a willingness to question and literally ask questions, which I am sure you will do! I’ll try and find listeber link for you, edited to add, I believe that she promotes pack theory and dominance beliefs, but I haven’t read her book and might be wrong. I don’t think it matters a jot if your dog jumps on the sofa when it wants but still kind and positive and responsive to the dog in nature.

Yee haa I am so happy and excited!!!!!!!!!
