What is TTouch?
TTouch is a very gentle method of working with our companion animal friends. This method is based on trust, cooperation and mutual respect. It offers a positive approach to training, can improve performance and health and presents solutions to common behavioral and physical problems. It also helps establish a deeper rapport between humans and animals through increased understanding and more effective communication.
In TTouch we utilize a variety of techniques of touch, movement and body language to affect behavior, performance, health, and to increase an animal’s willingness and ability to learn in a painless and anxiety-free environment.
What are the components?
Basically there are three components to the TTouch Method; we use the Touches, leading exercises, and confidence course - also known as the playground for higher learning. We use all three components when we are working with larger animals like horses and dogs, and with smaller animal companions, we incorporate the touches and s.
TTouch is based on the principal that posture affects behavior and our main focus is on body awareness through non-habitual movements.
Using a combination of specific touches, lifts, and movement exercises, TTouch helps to release tension and stress, and to increase body awareness. This allows the animal to be handled without provoking typical fear responses. The animal can then more easily learn new and more appropriate behaviors.
By using the TTouch and a variety of other tools, like the Confidence Course, you can assist the animal in experiencing self-confidence in previously frightening situations. Even the most difficult problems are often eliminated.
You can also learn how to apply the Tellington TTouch to assist with recovery from illness or injury, or just enhance the quality of your animal's life.
