Many of our courses we teach are hosted events. This means that is your course and we turn up and teach it for you, but it is run under your banner. We still provide you with relevant certificates for your students. These are ideal if you operate a dog business and you would like to offer one of our courses to your students or clients. We can have run courses for other dog training schools and colleges, dog day cares, charities and so on. We can also provide speakers at events. Over the past few years we have been delighted to work with some incredible partners, and these include Devon Dogs, the Dog Training College, Absolute Dogs, The Algarve Dog Trainer, The Healthy Pet Store, Rain Rescue, Oak Tree Animal Rescue, Hello Bello dog hotel (Algarve), Gelert Behaviour, Paws In The Park amongst others.

We can offer a variety of different options or we can tailor make a course for you. These courses can be taught in-person or on Zoom. We teach anywhere in the UK and internationally.

It was amazing to see the responses of the dogs to the various touches and having my own ‘Naughty but Nice’ dog take part in the seminar was great – I’ve never seen her as calm around other dogs as she was in that seminar when we tried the body wrap on her!!! From now on I will definitely be recommending TTouch as part of my veterinary care, particularly for my rehabilitation and behaviour cases”
