TTouch is a forward thinking approach to training and  behaviour. It helps dogs who find it difficult to concentrate/are sensitive to noise/who may need help to calm down. It helps handlers to improve their own handling skills .. encouraging a sense of calm and enhanced movement.

So …. how can TTouch help? Learn about the fascinating link between posture and behaviour with TTouch bodywork and groundwork exercises in a relaxed, fun atmosphere at Paws’n’Learn Studio with Marie Miller TTouch Instructor.

TTouch is awesome …. explore how it can enhance the relationship between human and animal companions by giving space for choice, appropriate reinforcement, an outlet to natural activities like exploring through scent, touch and free movement.

These workshops are for anybody who would like to further their knowledge of TTouch Training techniques and can be taken as stand alone workshops. They can also be counted towards qualification for those enrolled in the TTouch Associate programme.

TTouch for Handlers - improve your co-ordination and balance

TTouch One Day Workshops

Tellington TTouch is a brilliant way to improve your health, co-ordination and balance. Dogs generally do a brilliant job coping with the person on the other end of their lead. Do you ever feel clumsy? Do you ever feel as if you are more of a hinderance than a help to your dog? Are you slower than you used to be? Is there anything that you can do to ease nagging aches and pains?

Many modalaties encourage you to explore the body’s limits. TTouch celebrates what your body CAN do and creates new possibilities. We will be exploring TTouch body work, ground work and wraps for humans to improve body awareness, movement and balance. Shift the focus from your dog’s performance and improve your own. This workshop is for people only - no dogs. 

Please register an interest and dates available whether weekday or weekend

Tellington TTouch was developed by Linda Tellington-Jones who has been closely supported in it's development by her sister Robyn Hood. It is a method of training animals without using fear or force.

The non-habitual movements help to release tension using gentle bodywork and physically balancing  groundwork exercises.

TTouch works with the nervous system to improve mental, physical and emotional balance, bringing an enhanced ability to learn and co-operate with improved confidence and focus.

TTouch crosses language barriers and is now used in many different countries around the world. One of the most exciting things about this work is that it constantly evolves as we experiment and add more tools to our toolbox.TTouch creates the opportunity for animals and people to experience a different way to respond. Over time this can help them to learn how to shift from previously habitual behaviour patterns.

Click the link below to go to Linda Tellington-Jones' site in the USA. This excellent site gives a wealth of further information about TTouch, an International list of TTouch Companion Animal and Equine Practitioners, plus an on-line shop which gives details of and supplies books, videos and equipment.

We see our animals as companions and partners in life. TTouch is something that we do FOR animals not TO them. We seek to gain their trust to motivate them to co-operate without using force.

We meet and accept the animal where they are NOW - not where you would like them to be. Celebrate small improvements and accept that what they are able to give at that moment in time. It is very important to be aware of and pay attention to the information that the animal is trying to communicate. If something feels a little uncomfortable for the animal, there is no rush to work in that area, move back to something that helps them to feel safe, secure and comfortable. Then gently push the barriers of their comfort zone again, quickly coming back to a place that feels safe for the animal. You will be amazed at how quickly trust and confidence grows as the animal becomes aware that you are 'listening' and will not push too far, too fast.

In modern behaviour therapy and training, TTouch is a valuable tool to help modify stress related, aggressive and generally boistrous behaviour. TTouch can also be a beneficial therapy in addition to not instead of Veterinary Treatment to ease discomfort caused by some physical injuries or conditions. On a general level, really helps to enhance the animal / family relationship.
