TTouch

The Tellington TTouch offers practical solutions to common physical and behavioral problems encountered with our pets including:

  • Leash pulling
  • Jumping up
  • Car sickness
  • Grooming issues
  • Stress
  • Fear
  • Injury
  • Arthritis
  • Aging
  • Concentration

At its core, TTouch is a way of affecting animals through a series of circular movements of the fingers and hands on various parts of the body. These touches, lifts, and strokes, combined with leading exercises, help release tension, increase body awareness, and reduce stress. TTouch allows an animal to experience using its body differently and to interact with the environment in new ways.

TTouch can be beneficial for future, current, and retired agility dogs. The various aspects of TTouch help your dog process information from all parts of the body and enhances balance and fluid movement. The strategic use of touches and leading exercises create a state of relaxed alertness and concentration which promote learning and allow your dog to think while “on the move”. The hands-on portion of TTouch can function as a good warm up/cool down tool during classes and competition, as well as for supporting older dogs and those recovering from injury.

In this class, you will learn how to execute a variety of TTouches, Leading Exercises, and the Confidence Course. These techniques provide a positive, no-force way to influence your dog’s behavior, structure and ability to learn while also strengthening your relationship.
