TTouch and TTEAM for Behaviour Solutions

The Forward Thinking Approach to Training, Handling and Rehabilitation

Forthcoming Workshops Companion Animal and Equine

Workshop Dates for 2016

These workshops are ideal for people wanting to learn about the fabulous Tellington TTouch Training Method for their own animals or animals in their care.

Tellington TTouch is a wonderful teaching method for animals that helps improve co-ordination and balance.  At the same time it deepens communication, understanding and respect between an animal and its owner.  TTouch helps increase levels of self confidence, self awareness and self control.  TTouch offers a positive approach to training which emphasizes co-operation and partnership.
  TTouch recognises an inextricable link between posture and behaviour.  
Observations are key to helping owners and carers understand their dog/s on whole new level and the combination of TTouch body work, ground work and specialist equipment such as the Balance Lead, TTouch Harness and Body Wraps provide anyone working/living with or handling dogs valuable tools for change. If your dog is stressed or suffering from a problem behaviour Tellington Touch could be for you. 
  It gently guides the animal through non- habitual exercises that can alter existing habitual patterns.  As posture affects behaviour, many owners and carers note that unwanted behaviours diminish as the animal's posture improves. 
TTouch teaches the animal to act, rather than simply re-act.  Attending a workshop to learn how to apply TTouch skills to eliminate inappropriate behaviours, assist with recovery from injury or illness or simply to enhance the quality of your animal's life.      

Staff trainings for rescue centres, kennels, stables and catteries. 2 hour taster workshops, half day or full day workshops are all available.  I am also available for talks for dog training, obedience, ringcraft or agility groups of varying lengths.   Please contact Rachel for further details.

If there is not a workshop in your area why not host one?   Contact Rachel for further information

All workshops are held at
Leewood Hall, Benja Fold, off Ack Lane, Bramhall, Stockport, Cheshire, unless otherwise stated. 

NB    If you are unsure as to whether or not your dog may be comfortable in a workshop situation, please contact me to discuss this.   A workshop is not suitable for dogs that have issues with people or other dogs. If your dog is reactive towards people and/or dogs please contact Rachel for a one to one session, which will be more beneficial for specific problems. Dogs will need to remain on lead for the duration of the workshop. 


22nd October - TTouch for Firework Fears and Sound Sensitivity

Does your dog have a fear of fireworks, storms or loud noises?  Do they make him jump?  Do new things concern him?    Tellington TTouch is invaluable in helping your dog cope with fireworks and thunder as autumn and winter approaches.  We will look at some of the TTouch skills which we find help calm and settle dogs with firework fears.  Come along and learn how to help your dog at this noisy time of year.

On the Introduction to TTouch Workshop  you will learn how to apply some of the Tellington TTouch skills to help overcome issues such as noise sensitivity, anxiety, lack of confidence, pulling on lead and inappropriate behaviour, as well as assist with recovery from illness and injury. This practical workshop will cover bodywork, wraps and groundwork (leading exercises) designed to help your dog become more balanced, mentally, emotionally and physically, improving co-ordination and focus. The workshop is suitable for dogs that are comfortable around other dogs and people.  If you are unsure if the environment will be suitable for you dog, please ring Rachel for a chat.

3rd December pm - TTouch for Handling Issues

Does your dog find contact around the head and shoulders comfortable, but move away or sit down when you go near the hind quarters? Do they duck away from new people 
who reach out to touch them?  Do they stand in a way that you can only reach one place on their body?   Maybe you have a new rescue and are finding it difficult to make contact with your dog?  Is grooming difficult or impossible?  These are not  unusual problems, TTouch can help!  Come along to this half day workshop to learn how TTouch handling skills can help you and your dog.
