Tellington TTouch

The Tellington TTouch is a teaching method for animals that incorporates body work, and ground exercises where appropriate, to help improve co-ordination, balance, and athletic ability whilst deepening further 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 Awareness 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 the animals posture improves. TTOUCH teaches the animal to act, rather than simply re-act.
