Introduction to Tellington TTouch for the Pet Dog

About the course

Tellington TTouch Training® is a complete system of training, handling, rehabilitating and understanding animals using positive methods and in a holistic manner. It offers you a unique method of education for your animals incorporating, not just the brain, but the whole body. Tellington TTouch can help animals find their own balance as well as enhance co-operation between your companion, athlete or working animal and you.

TTouch enables your animal to learn self-control and build confidence, this enables them to move beyond their instinctive, and often fearful, responses to the world around them. Fear and pain, or memories of these, inhibit learning. Dealing with these enables the animal to become more trusting, relaxed and confident.

Observations of your animal are key to an accurate and effective assessment. By observing your animal’s physical and emotional state, specific TTouch techniques will then be selected to address behaviour and enhance well-being.

For the dogs who are nervous, or scared of whizzes and bangs on Bonfire Night, worried by other dogs, nail trimming, travel sickness or difficulty learning new things, then TTouch is for you and your dog. These dogs hold tension in their body, TTouch improves their physical balance, which has an effect on their behaviour and mental well being.
