My Mission

Dogs are my passion in life! I find it so rewarding and fulfilling to work with and help our canine friends. My mission is to help as many dogs as possible by sharing the 'Canine Communication' method, Amichein Bonding. I advocate for dogs whenever possible by speaking up when they can't and educating people about the Language and Culture of Dogs.   

Once we understand why dogs behave as they do and realize that they are merely acting on instinct, we can change the way that we view their behavior. We must stop blaming dogs for acting like a dog and start listening to what they are trying to communicate to us. There is a kind, respectful and natural way to stop dogs from being medicated on Prozac for the rest of their life (which doesn't correct the reason behind the behavior).  There is no need to rip a dog away from their family and, worst of all, murder them, simply because they are communicating in the only way that they know how.
 
We must stop and think about the commitment before deciding on adding a dog to our family dynamic. When you make a decision to have a child you don't ever consider giving them up or re-homing them because their behavior is difficult to live with. We understand that children need structure, boundaries, respect, love, patience & time as they learn to navigate the world around them. Dogs need the same consideration and dedication, a life-long commitment. We owe it to our furry family members to give them the best life possible and if they are stressed or scared to understand the core issue of the resulting behavior and be willing to do whatever it takes to help them.

ABOUT

Sarah-Anne Reed has always had a love for animals and a great passion for dogs. Growing up on a farm in Scotland, she was very much in her element when outside taking care of the animals. She has always had animals in her life and currently has two dogs.

Over the last few years she has worked with dogs that have displayed behavioral issues such as separation anxiety, self-mutilation, obsessive and destructive behavior, aggression, fear based behavior, mouthing and pulling on the leash.

With a professional background in human psychology she was naturally intrigued by the way dogs interact and behave with other dogs and humans. This curiosity led Sarah-Anne to become interested in dog psychology as she realized that the root cause of most behavioral issues was most likely related to our misunderstanding of how dogs communicate.

After researching many conventional dog training methods being used by the majority of dog trainers she believed that there must be a more kind, respectful and natural way of helping dogs. To truly help dogs Sarah-Anne knew that she needed to understand their language and culture and share this knowledge with other dog owners.

Consultations


Why your dog behaves as it does.

In-Home Training

Personalized for each dog

Consultations usually last 4 hrs in which you will learn:

  • Why your dog behaves as it does.
  • How to ‘Speak Canine’ and communicate in a way that your dog understands.
  • How to implement these techniques to help your dog/dogs.

The consultation takes place in your home, where you and your dog are most relaxed and comfortable. This allows us to have a ‘clear view’ of how your dog is perceiving its world and address all issues in a customized success plan.

During the consultation you will learn the simple method of Amichien Bonding and how to apply it, allowing you to communicate clearly and effectively. This will convince your dog that it can relinquish its role as leader, showing your dog that the undesirable behavior is no longer necessary. Removing the burden of leadership from your dog allows them to completely relax and be happy. It will no longer have to be on constant guard and make what it perceives as ‘life or death decisions’ for the well being of the pack every day. It also teaches your dog that you are the decision maker and as its leader your dog will trust you, of its own free-will without force or control, to lead the pack (your family).

Sarah-Anne is a certified International Dog Listener and participates in a Quality Assurance Program. It is a strict quality control system that enables her to offer exceptional, on-going assistance to every client.

Life-Time Back-Up

on-going assistance 

Pack Dynamics is dedicated to helping you send a calm, clear and consistent message to your dog that they no longer need to worry about the burden of being Alpha. Because dogs are living in a world that they don’t understand they will always have questions and need reassurance from their leader and it is our commitment to be there for you with support and guidance when you need us. It is not important how many questions a dog asks, but how we answer them. It is vital to our role as leader. If we answer calmly with confidence and consistent behavior in a language that dogs understand, your dog will choose to cooperate with you and see you as a leader they can trust to make all the right decisions for the safety and well being of thepack. The “Free Back-Up Help” is available by phone and e-mail if you have any questions about behavior that arises in the future and any help with future dogs that become part of your family.

When bringing home a new puppy or adopted dog it is important to be prepared and start ‘Communicating in Canine’ from the first day your new family member arrives home. We are here to help you and support a smooth transition for both you and your family, including your current dogs and your new arrival. Just as a child will constantly look to its parent for guidance, caring and reassurance during times of perceived stress and danger, a dog will look to its leader. Some dogs will have more questions than others depending on their personality, environment, history and the consistency of leadership qualities they see in you. It is in a dogs nature to always evaluate if the right person for the job has the leadership role because its survival depends on it.

Behavior


How much can your relationship with your dog improve? 

Behavioral issues are created when dogs are overwhelmed and stressed from trying fill the job as leader of the pack in a world that they will never fully understand. Due to their nature, dogs organize and relate to their family in a pack structure. There is always a leader of the pack (the Alpha) who is responsible for the well being and safety of the rest of the pack members. If your dog does not see you displaying the actions of what it perceives a leader must do, it will take on the role of leader itself. This leads to stress that arises from dogs not fully understanding our human world and having too little control over it's 'strange' environment.

Dogs display their stress in many ways, including pulling on the leash, barking constantly, mouthing, aggression, separation anxiety, jumping on visitors, fearful behavior, destruction, obsessive behavior, food aggression and much more. They will never understand how the human world works and this causes many problems when trying to communicate with them successfully. They will never learn how to Speak English, but we can learn how to Speak Canine.

Canine Communication is the Answer – Amichien Bonding

The Amichien bonding method being used to help resolve dog behavioral issues was discovered by Jan Fennell (The Dog Listener), who is an internationally renowned author of several best selling books and lecturer. After extensive study of wolves, wild dogs and coyotes Jan discovered how canines communicate. Also inspired by her friend, Monty Roberts, (The Horse Whisperer), she began to formulate a way of working with dogs using their own language.

Jan called this method Amichien Bonding. In French, this translates to “friend” (Ami) and “dog” (Chien). Amichien Bonding is a technique that utilizes dog psychology and pack dynamics, a language that all dogs understand due to their genetic makeup inherited from the grey wolf. The Amichien Bonding method is based on effective canine communication and is a unique, kind method in which your dog will elect you their leader of their own free-will. There will be no need to use choke chains, shock collars, haltis head collars and other gadgets to control or force your will upon dogs.

THE 4 KEY ELEMENTS OF THE AMICHIEN BONDING METHOD REVOLVE AROUND THE MOST IMPORTANT TIMES IN A DOG’S LIFE.

  • Feeding
  • Perceived Danger
  • The Hunt (The Walk)
  • Reuniting after separation

HOW MUCH WOULD YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR DOG IMPROVE IF YOUR DOG ACTUALLY WANTED TO COOPERATE OF IT'S OWN FREE-WILL? NOT BY FORCE, CONTROL OR BRIBERY.
