The Tellington TTouch Method is a gentle, respectful, and positive approach to handling, training, and interacting with animals, of many species, that incorporates observation, bodywork, leashwork, and tools.
It is a unique approach to animal training and care developed by internationally known author and teacher, Linda Tellington-Jones.
The foundation of this method is a specific form of body work known as TTouch ® , which induces a state of relaxation and increased body awareness in animals and people alike. The TTouch Method is based on a philosophy of mutual respect and cooperation and serves as a unique system of nonverbal communication with animals.
The Goals of TTouch Include:
Influencing positive behavioral changes
Promoting well-being through reduction of stress
Deepening the relationship and fostering clear communication between people and animals
Treating animals and their people with equal respect and understanding
The Tellington TTouch is now available in over 30 countries across the world and has been used with
horses, companion animals, zoo or wild animals and even people. There are over 1000 practitioners on
6 continents worldwide assisting individuals and small groups in learning the Tellington Method.
This Method, based on co-operation and respect, offers a positive approach to training.
It can improve performance, health and presents solutions to common behavioural and physical
problems. It also helps establish a deeper rapport between humans and animals through increased
understanding and more effective communication.
