Would you like to Host a Tellington TTouch Workshop?

with certified Tellington TTouch Practitioner Alex Wilson


Our standard package is our Tellington TTouch Zero to Hero 2-day course that is a deep dive into TTouch and also adding in some aspects of Concept Training (Tom Mitchell's version).  We can also offer a single day course for beginners and intermediates and a half day taster course. Our intermediate workshop would only be suitable for people who have already attended an introduction to TTouch course or for people with some experience with TTouch. Click here for full details of our standard packages.

As a general rule, the group size is around 12 with participants being able to bring dogs who can cope, we ask that dogs rest in cars or in a crate, unless Boundary Games trained. We like to keep the groups small. It is important that the dogs can cope in this environment and they also have a safe area where they can rest. It may not be practical to have all the dogs working at the venue at the same time and some of the sessions are done without the dogs as we learn the touches on each other and we also do body wrap session without dogs.

We would need a reasonably sized hall or indoor riding school (with a lecture room), sports hall, etc. Ideally, it is good to have space where we can sit to watch PowerPoint Presentations. We do need an area where we can layout groundwork equipment for a confidence course. In good weather, some of the exercises can be done outside.


We are also happy to teach during the week or at weekends. We usually start at 09:30 and we finish around 5:30 - 6:00 with a morning tea break, lunch break, and afternoon tea break. We ask the host to provide morning and afternoon tea and guests bring a packed lunch.

Our workshops do not qualify participants as Tellington TTouch practitioners.
