The Tellington TTouch is a teaching method for animals and incorporates body work, and ground work exercises where approriate, to help improve co-ordination, balance and athletic ability whilst deepening futher communication and understanding between the animal and its owner / carer.

 

TTouch helps increase levels of self confidence, self awareness and self-control.

 

Developed by Linda Tellington-Jones, TTeam and TTouch is used widely in many countries across the world by shelter assistants, dog trainers, zoos, veterinarians, therapists and pet owners.

 

With its roots in the Feldenkrais method of Awarness Through Movement, TTouch techniques gently guide the animal through non-habitual exercises that can alter existing habitual patterns. As posture affects behaviour, many owners and carers note that unwanted behaviour diminishes as animals posture improves. TTouch teaches animal to act, rather than simply react.

 

TTouch blends well with many other modalities and training methods. It is not necessary to adopt the whole TTouch philosophy in order to make a difference to an animal. Learning just a few of the simple body TTouches and movements can help make a difference to an animal's life.

 

TTouch is something we do FOR animals not to them!
