The Tellington TTouch® method is a teaching method for animals that incorporates bodywork and ground exercises where appropriate, to help improve co-ordination, balance and athletic ability whilst deepening further communication and understanding between the animal and its owner/carer.
Tellington TTouch helps increase levels of self-confidence, self-awareness and self-control. Developed by Linda Tellington-Jones, along with her sister; Robyn Hood. Tellington TTouch is used widely in many countries across the world by shelter assistants, dog trainers, zoos, veterinarians, therapists and pet owners.
With its roots in the Feldenkrais method of Awareness Through Movement, TTouch techniques gently guide the animal through non-habitual exercises that can alter existing habitual patterns. As posture affects behaviour, many owners and carers note that unwanted behaviour diminishes as the animal’s posture improves. TTouch teaches the animal to act, rather than simply react to a situation, it allows animals to make positive choices.
TTouch blends well with many other modalities and training methods including concept training, clicker training, BAT (Behaviour Adjustment Training), lure and reward etc. It is not necessary to adopt the whole TTouch philosophy in order to make a difference to an animal. Learning just a few of the simple body TTouches and movements can help make a difference to an animal’s life.
