Tellington TTouch

Tellington TTouch

Tellington TTouch is a teaching method for animals that incorporate 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 to increase levels of self-confidence, self-awareness and self-control.

Tellington TTouch Instructor Sarah Fisher has developed her own range of harnesses in three very adjustable sizes suitable for this training methods, incorporating a front ring to help teach a dog to walk in its natural balance. They also incorporate additional rings for advanced Tellington TTouch groundwork techniques. These harnesses can also be used as general dog walking harnesses.. We no longer offer these harnesses on our website but if you call the office we can supply them as a telephone order 0330 088 3647.

3m Ace wraps are extensively using in the Tellington TTouch Training to give the dog a sense of body awareness. Using the different sizes of (wraps 2 to 6" wide) in a variety of configurations on the dog's body can, in some situations, have an immediate effect on the behaviour or stress levels of the dog.

Wraps can also change the posture of the dog, relieve tension that the dog may be holdin,g and can help the overall self-confidence of the animal, their co-ordination and the way that they move. Even after the wrap is removed, the nervous system can remember the effect that the wrap has had on the dog. Click here for more information on how body wraps can help a dog.
