NEXT COURSE

Tellington TTouch is an innovative and complete method of understanding, handling, and influencing our dogs, and ourselves.  Developed over four decades ago by Linda Tellington-Jones, and her sister Robyn Hood.

This modality understands behaviour as means of communication rather than attitude or personality. 

Dogs cannot learn much if there is pain, fear, or fear of pain and that the nervous system can learn much more through non-habitual movement rather than simple repetition. 

One of the method’s core principles is the link between posture and behaviour.   Time and time again we have seen the powerful connection between physical, mental, and emotional balance.   

 

TTouch combines observations and philosophy, bodywork, groundwork exercises, and equipment to help animals find physical, mental, and emotional balance, as a way of enhancing communication, cooperation, and balance.

 

TTouch works to show animals what we want and make the steps as small and easy as possible to keep the learning process low-stress and logical.

 

One of the most versatile aspects of Tellington TTouch is that it is not an “all or nothing approach”.  The work can blend with clicker training, concept training and other positive methods of training dogs and modifying their behaviour.

The 4-hour course will cover:
Tension in Dogs, observations and canine body language
Understanding TTouch body touches
What is a body wrap and a calming coat
Using Tellington TTouch equipment and how it can benefit your daily dog walk.
Loose-lead walking and TTouch groundwork.
You will receive a certificate of attendance, it does not qualify you as a Tellington TTouch practitioner.
This course will include live teaching, watching videos, and hands-on exercises. Please have a sponge to practice touches on - you will be able to practice on your dog too. You will require a strong internet signal and we advise watching on a laptop or desktop computer.
