The Tellington TTouch is a gentle and unique approach to training and the care of companion animals and horses. Developed by internationally recognized animal expert, Linda Tellington-Jones, this method based on cooperation and respect, offers a positive approach to training. It can improve focus, athletic skills, increase willingness and ability to perform and learn. TTouch provides solutions to common behavioral problems. It also helps establish a deeper rapport between animals and humans through increased understanding and more effective communication.
TTouch uses a combination of specific touches, lifts, wraps and movement exercises to help relieve fear, anxiety, tension patterns and increase body awareness. This helps the animal to overcome habitual fear responses. The animal is then able to learn new and more appropriate behaviors.

By using TTouch you can assist your animal in experiencing self-confidence in previously frightening situations. It can also help your animal become more comfortable being handled so routine visits to the Veterinarian or Groomer are more enjoyable for your animal companion.
This fair, humane and respectful method is currently being used by animal owners, trainers, breeders, veterinarians, zoo personnel, wildlife rehabilitation and shelter workers throughout the United States and around the world.
