IS TRAINING REALLY NECESSARY FOR MY DOG?
First, we need to understand what training really is. It’s helping your dog understand what is ideal behavior and what is not. When we teach him such basics through commands, recall, and obedience training, our dog becomes independent of his thought and knows better. Moreover, dogs belong to another species they have their own instincts and understanding of the world, partnering with them to build a mutual bond of love, respect, and most importantly trust, is why training is important.
DO I NEED TO SEND MY DOG TO YOU FOR TRAINING?
No. Our entire focus lies in training you to train your dog. That way, you become independent for life to handle and take care of your dog, anytime, anywhere. The relationship lies between the pet parent and the pet, we as trainers serve as mediators to bridge the gap of training and communication. We conduct our training sessions via one on one home visits, virtual sessions, or at our All Ears Training Centre in Mumbai, India.
I AM A FIRST-TIME PET PARENT AND HAVE ZERO EXPERIENCE IN RAISING OR TRAINING DOGS, ARE YOU SURE MY DOG WILL STILL LISTEN WHEN ALL EARS TRAIN ME TO TRAIN HIM?
Experience doesn’t play an integral role here. When we train you, we make sure you learn the logic, science, and reasoning behind every command/technique. Training helps you listen to your dog better and since you are the one spending 24 hours with him, it only makes sense for him to listen to your command before ours.
WILL THE TRAINING PROGRAM BE ONLY FOR 3 MONTHS? WHAT IF MY DOG DOESN'T LEARN IN THAT SET DURATION?
Our team assures the speed and style of training are customized to each dog we train. If you or your dog are taking time to learn or not understanding something, we focus on resolving it before moving forward. Three months is the average time frame mentioned, the duration of the course can be altered.
HOW CAN I LISTEN TO MY PET AND UNDERSTAND WHAT IS HE SAYING?
Consider how you speak to just another person or children. When we ask them about what they like, don’t like, reasons behind a sudden behavior shift, or what is bothering them, they speak their heart out on what they truly feel. All beings like to express and vent. A simple act of Listening can solve problems from its root cause than suppressing its symptoms with numerous training commands.
IS YOUR TRAINING AGE OR BREED-SPECIFIC?
No, your dog or puppy need not be of a specific age, breed or temperament to be trained. At All Ears, training is helping our dogs understand what is acceptable and what is not by encouraging desirable behavior and correcting undesirable behavior.
WILL MY DOG REMEMBERS ALL THE COMMANDS TAUGHT, EVEN YEARS AFTER TRAINING HIM?
Our goal is to make every dog independent of his thought, emotions and actions. Training commands serve as a guide to condition them to understand what is expected out of them. Eg: if biting the furniture is off-limits for my puppy, my one command asking him to not do it should help them learn this is not allowed, hence he leaves it alone, for life.
CAN AGGRESSIVE DOGS BE TRAINED?
We believe it’s not the dog that is aggressive, it’s a type of behavior that has become his go-to response to situations beyond his control. To put it simply, your dog isn’t aggressive, he is emitting aggressive behavior. In a session, we combine training with communication and learn the root cause of his aggression to help him channelize it the right way. Only giving him a command when he is exhibiting that behavior will suppress his need for what he is trying to say, pairing it with communication helps us understand him better and resolve it permanently.
IS THERE A REASON ALL EARS DOES NOT USE TREATS OR CHAINS TO TRAIN? HOW ELSE DO YOU TEACH DOGS?
When we train a dog, it's important to remind ourselves that we are training another species, and to help them learn better, we need to focus on how they train each other. No dog uses a treat or a chain to teach each other. Upon observation and study, we adapted dog-friendly methods helping them grasp information quicker and easier. For example, when our dogs wish to tell us something, they bark, growl, wail, or whimper. Same way, if we wish to tell them something, we would talk to them in a language they would understand. Hence, our training methods include hand signals, verbal commands, and body language. Treats cannot be used as a reward if we want to discontinue a behavior, we need to correct the dog and teach him desirable behavior.
SHOULD I GET MY PET TO YOUR PLACE FOR A COMMUNICATION APPOINTMENT?
No. Telepathy works over a geographical distance. It is as simple as having a telephonic conversation with your friend.
HOW DOES ANIMAL TELEPATHY WORK?
Telepathic communicators pick up and interpret the emotions and images the animal or plant shares.
IS IT JUST DOGS AND CATS WE CAN TALK WITH?
No, A spirit is a spirit. The soul is the same, whether you are a pig’s soul or a dog’s soul or a butterfly’s soul, or a snake’s soul. You all feel the same, and have the same hopes and fears, there is no real difference. Telepathic communication is not just constrained to domesticated animals at all. Wild animals, reptiles, insects, or birds are receptive too but of course, you can’t always get the validation back like you can when working with a human’s pet.
WOULD I BE ABLE TO SPEAK TO MY PET IF I WANT TO?
Of course! Telepathy is a part of all of us! All beings are born with the ability to communicate with each other and telepathy is just a medium to do so. Our animals are always talking to us, it’s us who need to start listening!
I WANT MY ANIMAL TO CHANGE HIS BEHAVIOUR ABOUT A PARTICULAR THING, CAN YOU ASK HIM TO DO IT?
A communicator’s sole purpose to be all ears to what the animal or plant has to say to us and finding out the reason behind his behavior first and then asking him whether he would want to change it or not. This usually occurs when our animals are trying to convey something specific or sending a message. Communicating with them at such a time is always a good option to find the root of the problem rather than eliminating it altogether.
CAN YOU CONNECT WITH MY ANIMAL WHO HAS PASSED AWAY?
Yes. They are sentient beings just like we are. They have minds, hearts, and souls, even after they leave their body and move into another being. Communication doesn’t bother the physical form. It is a mind-to-soul connection that remains forever.
