Dogs are welcome as long as they can cope with the environment. This is NOT a full practical day and it will be necessary for your dogs to have time out. We suggest that you have a car nearby or a crate in the hall for your dog to be able to have rest time. 

We can provide a variety of one-day workshops anywhere in the UK. Our standard workshop is a one-day Introduction to TTouch day that will give you the tools to start using the work on your dog/s. This course can also be very helpful to people working in the rescue world and want to incorporate TTouch into their day to day dog management programme. We can also offer a one-day intermediate workshop for people who have attended a one day workshop with us or another practitioner. This course will offer participants the opportunity to hone their skills and learn new touches. Non-reactive dogs are welcome to attend our workshops, but please make sure that any dog you bring can cope with the environment. Please bring a crate for your dog so that they can have time out as there will be sessions where we do not work with dogs.
