We are very honoured to have the opportunity to learn this wonderful technique from one of the UK’s leading practitioners in this field.

Tellington TTouch Training offers a gentle approach to the care and training of companion animals, horses, farm animals, exotics and wildlife. It is also an effective and empowering method that provides self-help for humans.
Developed by internationally recognized animal expert, Linda Tellington-Jones, PhD (Hon), this method is based on cooperation and respect for all animals and their people.

The approach in the field of canines is widely accepted as a powerful method to improve behaviour, enhance performance and health and teach a dog to learn willingly. It helps establish a deeper rapport and more effective connection and understanding between humans and their animals.

In this workshop we will introduce the core elements of TTouch and give you tools that you can take away to support your work with your own and client animals.

HELP! My Dog Doesn’t Travel Well In The Car: Solving motion sickness and other traveling issues.

With Toni Shelbourne, Tellington TTouch Practitioner, Real Dog Yoga Instructor, and author.

Does your dog suffer from motion sickness when in the car? Bark in your ear or jump about, making it difficult to concentrate and being a dangerous distraction to the driver? Or perhaps he isn’t keen about getting in at all? Sharing the car with a poor passenger makes even the shortest trip stressful and miserable for everyone – but help is now at hand!

In this webinar you will find solutions for these issues.

The webinar accompanies Toni Shelbourne and Karen Bush’s new book, which is available in eBook and paperback format here.
