The Tellington Touch Method
The Tellington TTouch Method (TTouch) is a training and healthcare system developed by internationally known animal expert, Linda Tellington Jones. The TTouch Method is recognized worldwide and used by animal owners, trainers, breeders, veterinarians, animal shelters, zookeepers, Olympic teams and universities in over 30 countries.The gentle, non-invasive techniques include bodywork and balanced movement exercises that anyone can learn that can impact a range of health and behavioral issues. It has been proven to calm animals and restore confidence and can alleviate their pains, fears and tensions.
TTouch can contribute positively towards improving a wide variety of behavioral issues including excessive barking, noise anxiety, fear related issues, leash pulling, reactivity/overarousal. It is also useful for handlers looking for simple ways to increase focus and prevent injuries in performance arenas.
TTouch also provides a non-invasive way to alleviate the aches, pains, and discomforts in geriatric animals and provides comfort and support to animals recovering from injuries, surgeries or other health problems.

“I first discovered Tellington TTouch in the summer of 2001, when my dog Big Sandy was recovering from an amputation. Looking for a holistic, non-invasive method for helping her recover physically and mentally, the simple techniques had a profound impact on both of us. Since then, I have used TTouch daily on my own animals and bear witness to how it can improve both overall health and behavior. In an effort to incorporate TTouch into my business, I became certified as a Tellington TTouch Companion Animal Practitioner and hope to share the techniques with a wider audience.”
