What Will We Be Doing?


Two Day Tellington TTouch Workshop that will encompass how we observe our dogs, a basic understanding of dog body language and understanding the effects of coat patterns in dogs and and what that means when we see unusual coat pattern changes. 


• Learning about tension patterns in dogs and how we can use TTouch to release tension and looking at the link between posture and behaviour.


• How TTouch can be a great tool to add to the Naughty But Nice Training programme and how we use TTouch to lower dogs arousal and even bring dogs down from threshold.


• Understanding and learning Tellington TTouch bodywork. You will learn a number of the touches and have time to practise on other participants as well as on dogs.


•Understanding and using bodywraps and calming coats and how they can help dogs focus and relax. We will discuss how these tools will have an effect of the dogs nervous system.


•Groundwork, we will explore how groundwork can help dogs to make positive choices and teach them to move slowly in balance

Stopping dogs pulling, using the TTouch leading techniques we will look at how to teach dogs to walk in their own balance without pulling on the lead. We will explore some of the different groundwork techniques we use in TTouch with time to practise them with the dogs.​​
