“Mary Lynne was very clear and
of our questions. I have recommended this service to everyone I know who owns
--Jody (Vienna, VA)
“I never realized how much
our dog was controlling us.
You gave me my time back!
I get more accomplished, and he’s calmer and happier. Thank you!”

ConsultationsIn order to get the most out of a consultation, it is recommended that you first read Jan Fennell's book, The Dog Listener. This book will give you an in-depth understanding of the Amichien® Bonding process as well as the "tools" you will use to begin communicating clearly with your dog. Included is a 30-day step-by-step program to help you implement the 4 core elements of Amichien Bonding - Feeding, The Walk, Perceived Danger, and Status - with your dog.
Although the book is quite comprehensive, some people find that working with a trained consultant is helpful. Peaceful Paws offers consultations in your home and at your convenience. Mary Lynne Doleys, owner of Peaceful Paws, was the first person in the U.S. to be certified by Jan Fennell and has consulted with people and their dogs using Amichien Bonding since 2004.
Why do I need an in-home consultation?
Having a consultation in your home allows your dog to exhibit its natural behavior in its own environment; lets the consultant see the interaction between all family members and dogs; and enables the consultant to make suggestions that are specific to your home environment. It also provides you the opportunity to ask questions that may have come up with regard to implementing the method.
A one-time, flat fee covers the consultation itself, which generally lasts 3-4 hours, and backup support via telephone at no additional charge for as long as you need it - for the life of your dog - should questions arise after the visit. During the consultation, you will learn:
When will I see improvement?
Mary Lynne also gives presentations on Amichien Bonding to rescue groups, people who foster, dog training clubs, libraries, dog camps, and any other groups who have an interest in learning more about Jan Fennell's non-violent way of working with dogs.
