    Tellington TTouch Training can influence all areas of your dog’s life. Behaviour problems, performance issues and your dog’s wellbeing are so intrinsically linked to posture. Physical, mental and emotional balances are all crucial for a well-rounded, adaptable individual. On this one day Introduction to TTouch Workshop Rachel will introduce you to TTouch techniques to help you and your dog in everyday life.

     

    You will learn:

    • To recognise some of the signs that indicates tension in your dog.
    • Four TTouches that can help calm your dog, be less reactive to contact and be more body aware.
    • A simple body wrap that can help your dog relax and be less noise sensitive.
    • Groundwork activities to enable your dog to be more physically balanced and focused.

     

    No previous experience of TTouch necessary. Dogs must be people and dog friendly (dogs will remain on lead with no contact with each other). Please bring your dogs’ bed and water bowl. A few treats may also be appreciated by your dog. Handout provided at the end of the workshop.

    Communication, Arousal and Problematic Behaviours

     

    Handlers and spectators will further develop their knowledge on understanding, overcoming and preventing problematic behaviours that our dogs perform during periods of arousal. We will focus on the communications behind the behaviours and the practical steps that we can take to help the dogs in our care.

     

    Both handlers and spectators will work through an extremely informative and interactive work book guided by Craig. This covers a practical acronym based, step by step guide to follow when analysing and working towards overcoming problematic behaviours. We will learn how to avoid labelling the dogs in your care by dissecting problematic behaviours in to separate influencing components which will allow you to develop and implement an effective plan to work towards overcoming the behaviours.

     

    Handlers will then begin to put the theory in to practice by working with Craig to lay some solid foundations which will allow you to work with your dog towards overcoming the problematic behaviour that the dog in your care is displaying. A practical guide that will continue to help you to efficiently evaluate and work towards overcoming problematic behaviours to improve the lives of both the dogs in your care and your students alike.
