Work through a comprehensive program designed by Senior Tellington TTouch Practitioner and co-author of HELP! My Dog is Scared of Fireworks, Toni Shelbourne to support your pet through the bangs and whizzes of the firework season.

One style does not fit all, so Toni will ensure you have the right tools for your animal’s particular needs.

There are many myths surrounding noise phobia like you shouldn’t comfort a scared dog; also, tons of products claiming to be the wonder cure, but with any fear-based issue the individual needs to be taken into consideration.

One thing is for sure, a multi-tool approach is needed – with Tellington TTouch Training as the central core; trying one thing at a time is not going to work for the fearful dog but a combination of four or five might.

For over 45 years the Tellington TTouch® Method has been changing the way humans and horses interact.  Many of the ideas that were considered “weird” and “unorthodox” in the beginning are today considered mainstream and have been  readily absorbed into equine culture.

Among these previously “radical” ideas is the acknowledgement of the inter-connectivity between physical, mental, and emotional balance in all beings.  Considering behavioral issues in a “wholistic” way allows one to develop and use  tools that get to the root of an issue, and actually resolve the cause, rather than just address the symptom.

The “Body Wraps” have become an integral piece of the Tellington TTouch Method, complementing the bodywork and the groundwork exercises in a way that integrates the external information  into the horse’s body at the cellular level.  Their gentle, non-invasive, non-restrictive nature passively increase the horse’s body-awareness while in motion or standing still.

The changes in postural habits, tension patterns, and functionality can result in unbelievable improvements in a horse’s self-confidence, self-control, balance, and overall coordination.  Perhaps the most amazing thing about the “Body Wraps” is their long lasting effect.  Even when taken off the body,  the change is often maintained.

Horses who have only worn the wraps a handful of times often continue to benefit from their effects without regular re-application.

In this easy to follow, information filled course you will learn how simple and effective it can be to add TTouch Body Wraps to your current program.

This course includes:

➡️ Instant lifetime access 24/7

➡️ 5 learning sections covering 10 specific topics

➡️ Over 120 minutes of how-to videos and lectures

➡️ Detailed written descriptions and trouble-shooting tips

➡️ Certificate of Completion available
