Tellington TTouch – What Is It?
Tellington TTouch is a kind and respectful way of working with animals to help them overcome a variety of health and behavioural issues. It was developed over 30 years ago by Linda Tellington Jones and is now widely used around the world by trainers, shelter workers, vets, physiotherapists, behaviourists, riding instructors and animal owners. TTouch recognises an inextricable link between posture and behaviour and uses body work, ground work exercises (where appropriate) and specific equipment to release tension and to promote a feeling of calm and well being. This in turn helps animals develop self-confidence and self control and enables them to move beyond their instinctive and, often fearful, responses.
