Tellington TTouch Techniques: Walking in Balance with Your Dog

by Lori Stevens

DVD- 3 disc set plus CD-Rom

Tellington TTouch (developed by Linda Tellington-Jones) is a gentle, positive method of bodywork and movement based on more than three decades of results with more than 1000 practitioners worldwide. TTouch provides a powerful set of tools and techniques that improve an animal’s health, behavior, and performance. It can also deepen the relationship between animals and their people. TTouch complements veterinary care and dog training. 

In this 1-day workshop you will be introduced to positive tools and techniques to help you walk more effectively and in balance with your dog or your clients' dogs. If you are a dog professional, you will have more tools to use to help your clients. 

Topics include:

  • TTouch body work to help your dog on walks
  • TTouch wrapping techniques that can help with walking
  • Body and leash cues that influence how our dogs walk with us
  • Body positioning, both ours and our dogs’
  • Tension patterns and other problems from leash-pulling
  • How to achieve your own balance and your dog's while walking, and what to look for
  • Leash techniques and configurations, e.g. communicating more effectively with your dog through a leash
  • Using the power of TTouch walking techniques, e.g. Two Points of Contact
  • Equipment: Harness fit and leashes, and how to use equipment effectively and without force
  • How to influence change in your walking relationship
  • Balanced movement exercises through a TTouch course
