Taking this course as a start towards certification? Here are you next steps.
I read about the Tellington TTouch® Training during my studies to become a Canine Behaviour Therapist some years ago. I was curious but quite skeptical – I needed to see and experience for myself if this Method could be of value in my work. And boy was I a fool to be skeptical…. it is of immense value every single day; it actually makes all the difference in my work with dogs.
The observational skills we use and share/teach, the many practical tools to help dogs cope, whether it be the TTouches, the Playground of Higher Learning or the leash handling skills, not to mention the compassion and understanding we have for the dog AND its owners is unique in the dog world.
I have become not only a better behaviourist, but also a much more knowledgable dog mom thanks to the Tellington TTouch® Training and its inspiring Instructors like Robyn Hood, Tina Constance, Lindy Dekker, Edie Jane Eaton and others. And I’m still learning every day!
I have been a certified Tellington TTouch Practitioner since 2016 and qualified as a P2 two years later. I’ve organized the Tellington TTouch® Trainings for Companion Animals in the Netherlands and Belgium since 2018.
I share my life with 2 rescue dogs and divide my time between the bustling city center of Amsterdam and the quiet countryside outside Breda where I look after my parents, their 2 cats and a dog.
