Tellington TTouch® is a method of working with animals that has proven effective in reducing stress, fear, aggression and anxiety; as well as modify behavior, increase flexibility and—when combined with veterinarian care—aid in recovery. The approach is gentle yet systematic and helps animals to better cope with different and novel situations.
It improves confidence, focus and learning.
With the use of gentle touches, body wraps and groundwork (a variety of exercises with equipment) we engage and calm the animal's nervous system as well as teach the animal to move in non-habitual ways. Since an animal that is stressed or anxious cannot learn, the incorporation of TTouch® becomes an initial first step to any learning. Your dog will learn how to focus and better cope with situations in which he/she reacts with fear, concern or anxiety.
This workshop is ideal for guardians/owners who want to learn the basics of the TTouch® method by working with their own dog on a particular issue. During the workshop we will be working with TTouches, wraps and groundwork.
• Dogs must be crate trained OR be able to remain comfortably behind an “x pen” for periods of time during the workshop.
• Dogs must be comfortable (no lunging, barking) while working in the proximity of other dogs on a leash and people.
• Each dog must have a handler, but multiple family members are welcome to attend.
What to bring everyday to the Workshop:
A six-foot long leash (no flexi leashes please), flat collar, harness or head collar. No prong collars or pinch collars. If your dog has a flat collar but you normally walk him with a harness or head collar please bring both to the workshop.
A bed or mat for your dog
One 4” ACE bandage (NOT the self-adhesive)
A frozen (with food inside) KONG of the appropriate size for your dog.
