What our students say…
I just wanted to say another thank you for the clinic. As I started to tell friends about the clinic and all that I learned about and need to put into practice it really started to get “real” for me. I came away able to utilize what I learned immediately.
Yesterday was one of the most relaxing walks that I have ever had with Tia. We were loose leash the whole way and when vehicles went by, if I noticed her tensing a bit, I just did a few TTouches, she relaxed and a way we went. No spinning.
TTouch has significantly changed my relationship with animals, and enabled me to change the lives of those animals I come in contact with, and that is a most beautiful thing.
The TTouch sessions were great – and will revolutionize the way I handle my horse from the time I go into the pasture to get her until I put her back after grooming, groundwork and a ride. Everyone learns at a different pace (no pun intended) and different things work for different people. This really works for me! This is the best money I have ever spent (other than when I bought my horses) and well worth the time. I encourage everyone to attend a clinic from Robyn or Mandy, if possible, and see if it works for you, too.
I wanted to share a wrapping experience with you. One of my horses is a rather nervous, uncertain Thoroughbred, who is slightly high headed and gets tense in her back, particularly when she lopes. So, I tried the Telescope Body Wrap on her. She relaxed immediately, almost slept in, when I started to put the wraps on. I did a lot of walk-trot-walk changes on the lunge line with her with the wraps on and she started to stretch down and relax her back. It’s so great to see the wraps work!!!
Thanks a lot for all your great work in figuring out how we can help the horses!
Without TTouch and the method of working with my dog with 2 points of contact I would still be struggling with my boxer who is very strong and a big puller. I can now walk him with confidence that I have a more positive influence with keeping him close to me and don’t have to worry if other dogs come along because I have skills to keep him moving past. My relationship with him is more respectful and we have a deeper emotional connection.
Make walks fun again! Let your dog move freely with adjustable harness and leash.
The double ended connection & sliding handle reduces pulling from either end and allows your dogs freedom without the loss of control.

Are you curious to learn what the Tellington TTouch® Method is all about?
Here is your chance to learn an array of innovative, effective, and dog-friendly exercises and techniques that will transform the way you and your dog understand one another.
The Tellington TTouch is an innovative and complete system of understanding, handling, and influencing our animals, and ourselves. Developed over four decades ago by Linda Tellington-Jones, TTouch has always been years ahead of its time.
This integrative approach understands behaviour as means of communication rather than attitude or personality.
Experience has taught us that beings cannot learn much if there is pain, fear, or fear of pain and that the nervous system can learn much more through non-habitual movement rather than simple repetition.
One of the method’s core principles is; Change the posture, Change the behaviour.
Time and time again we have seen the powerful connection between physical, mental, and emotional balance. All Tellington TTouch exercises start with changing posture and mindfulness as a means to affect behaviour and cooperation.
How does it work?
TTouch combines observations and philosophy, bodywork, ground exercises, and equipment to help animals find physical, mental, and emotional balance, as a way of enhancing communication, cooperation, and harmony.
TTouch does not strictly fit into any traditional learning theory quadrant. It does not use the escalation of pressure to create behaviour, nor does it rely solely on positive reinforcement, although it works well with Clicker training.
TTouch works to show animals what we want and make the steps as small and easy as possible to keep the learning process low-stress and logical.
One of the most versatile aspects about the Tellington TTouch Method is that it is not an “all or nothing approach”.
Our philosophy and attitude is just as meaningful as the specific approach and techniques. Many people find that they can adapt their current program to include the mindfulness and respect that is paramount to the Tellington TTouch Method.
This can result in long lasting and effective results that builds your relationship with any animal you interact with.
The aim is not to just train an animal a specific cue for obedience, the aim is to help animals learn, and begin to have the self-control to act instead of simply re-acting to a stimulus.
Building this self-confidence and self-control means that an animal can adapt and adjust to a variety of situations and settings, even if they have not specifically been exposed to them prior.
We do not use flooding, or encourage “learned helplessness” in animals and the role of the handler is not to be the alpha or dominant one, but rather enhance mutual trust and cooperation for a true partnership.

The Tellington TTouch for Horses
The Tellington TTouch Method for horses offers a training approach that encourages optimal performance and well-being.
Based on the understanding that behavioural issues are often caused by pain, soreness, fear or tension in the body, TTouch addresses these underlying issues through a combination of Body Work, specific Ground Exercises, and Riding With Awareness along with an overarching respect and consideration for the horse.
Tellington TTouch goes beyond just what you do with your horse and how you do it; it changes how you believe in your horse, and understand them at a deeper level; beyond behaviour and labels.
This low-stress, logical method of dealing with horses seeks to take horses beyond the reflex of instinct, and educate horses how to think and act rather than re-act to the source of concern.

TTouch–for-You® is a system of gentle circular TTouches that works at the cellular level to activate the body’s potential.
Linda Tellington-Jones, PhD (Hon) created Tellington TTouch® in 1983 for the training and care of horses and other animals. While learning TTouch® for their animals, horse and pet owners practiced these techniques on each other to better understand what their animals were experiencing. Effectiveness of the TTouch® for people became apparent.
Over the years, people of all ages realized a newfound sense of well-being and renewal using TTouch®. They also got relief from everyday physical and emotional issues such as headaches, backache, neck pain, depression, and sensitivity to touch.
TTouch® is gaining acceptance in the human healthcare system. Nurses, massage therapists, physical therapists, physicians and occupational therapists are successfully integrating these techniques into their practices. For example, nurses use TTouch® for post-fracture swelling, labor pain, wound care, and the management of edema, pain and anxiety. Massage Therapists and Physical Therapists find TTouch® effective in cases of chronic pain and Fibromyalgia. In addition to the clinical applications, many healthcare professionals experience much needed relaxation and stress-relief for themselves.
