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 dog trainers, shelter workers, vets, physiotherapists, behaviour counsellors, veterinary nurses, competition riders, riding instructors and animal owners. TTouch recognises an inextricable link between posture and behaviour and uses bodywork, groundwork exercises, 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 helps them move beyond their instinctive and, often fearful, responses. Our lovely TTouch tutor will be joining us again, Jo Churlish. She is a Tellington TTouch Practitioner (P1) - for Companion Animals, she is also almost qualified for TTouch for horses (TTEAM), a Qualified Vet Nurse, Post-Grad Cert - Companion Animal Behaviour Counselling, Degree-level Cert Applied Animal Behaviour, a member of APDT & is Working towards KCAI. This workshop covers elements of KCAI A1, A2, A3, A4, A5 and more
