Meet FurN'Fun!We are Victoria - aka Vic - and Arnaud - aka Frenchy.
We are the authors of the best-seller 'Dogs Do What Works', a manual for dog professionals willing to learn Behavioural Modification, the creators of the HEART initiative that campains for a more ethical industry and for the promotion of humane training that takes into account the emotional welfare of the dogs; we are also the founders of the AFCBC, the Association of Force-Free Canine Behaviour Consultants, which evaluates all dogs professionals in the UK, and members of the Pet Professional Guild which promotes 'Force-Free Methods, Informed by Science, Guided by Empathy, Governed by Ethics'. We are also active members of the IFDT (Initiative for Force Free Training)
We were what is now called Behaviourists long before it was even a thing, and we have been promoting science-based, force-free, pain-free and fear-free training long before it was trending - the late 1980's! Between us we have almost half a century of Canine Behaviour experience and we have worked with close to 10000 dogs. Along the years we have qualified in behavioural science, biology, canine first aid, teaching and training, canine training, canine behaviour modification, psychology and others... We have been constantly on a study scheme of some sort for the past three decades: for instance, currently Frenchy is studying the neuroscience of pathological aggression.
