This course is our most popular course, designed to take clients from beginner to intermediate over the two days. We pack a lot into this course, that combines, theory,  seminars and practical session. Within the course, we will have plenty of time to learn a number of touches, learn about groundwork and free work, how to observe dogs, dog body language and using body wraps. There are also powerpoint presentations on tension patterns, positive training, a loose lead walking seminar and much more. The course is suitable for up to 12 participants with or without dogs. We do need some dogs to operate the course.

 

Full Day Introduction to Tellington TTouch Course

This is a one-day Introduction to TTouch day that will give you the tools to start using the work on your dog/s. We will cover observation/body language skills, bodywork, wraps and helping dogs not to pull on the lead, using TTouch leading techniques, groundwork, and the confidence course. There will be two powerpoint presentations as part of the course. No TTouch experience is necessary to take this course and it is as suitable for pet owners who wish to use TTouch with their own pets as it is for those professionally involved with dogs, including trainers, vet nurses dog walkers etc. 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. This course is suitable for up to 10 participants with or without dogs. We do need some dogs to operate the course. 

 

Full Day Intermediate TTouch course.

We will also introduce the use of ropes into the TTouch groundwork and learn about and use Freework.

Dr. Montana Mays

Vet

“The Tellington T-touch course was fantastic! I work as a full-time veterinarian and had heard of T-touch before but had always been a bit skeptical having never learned anything about it at vet school. I was intrigued and thought I would give it a try and WOW I couldn’t have been more impressed. 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 T-touch as part of my veterinary care, particularly for my rehabilitation and behaviour cases"
