With the majority of dog bites taking place in the home & mainly involving young children, Tony will be taking time out from filming his new show, Think Like A Dog, to help children at Charles Baines to feel safer around their own pets and those they meet in the street.
“We felt that this was a unique opportunity for our children to have a valuable lesson on how to be more aware when playing with dogs at home or meeting them out in the local community,” said Carla Wray, school business manager.
The visit took place during the children’s assembly last Monday and was interactive in allowing the children to learn the dos and don’ts of being around dogs.
Tony, who is the son of Jan Fennell, international author & the original Dog Listener, gained the title of Australian TV’s Celebrity Dog Listener whilst helping famous Australians with their dog dilemmas.
After completing filming for Australian TV, he is now back to his UK roots to launch his new TV show on Estuary TV, resolving the behavioural issues of pets in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
“I work hard to spread the message of the Amichien Bonding method, founded by my mother,” said Tony.
“This is for dog owners to get the very best out of their dog, without having to resort to the things that for dog lovers go against the grain, including gizmos, gadgets, violence or enforced dominance.”
Anyone who has a problem pooch, delinquent dog or a hound from hell that they would like Tony to resolve, can send an email to [email protected] with a picture of their offending canine and a short paragraph describing the problems.
