Our workshops are fun, supportive, incredibly informative, and above all, taught with complete respect for our two and four legged students.   There is no need to feel intimidated or worry about “not knowing enough”.  

Participants of all levels enjoy a great learning environment whether they are brand new or have been professionals for decades.    We all learn from each other and the “layered” nature of the work brings people back time and time again for added nuances and new developments.

Whether you are attending a workshop in person or online, are seeking certification or personal learning, you will walk away with a new understanding about animals, and likely yourself.

TTouch for animal Husbandry with Robyn HoodJoin Robyn Hood (Tellington TTouch Senior Instructor), this winter (date TBD once min enrollment is met), and learn trust-based, gentle, effective and supportive techniques from the comfort of home.

It is a fact that at some point in your dog’s lifetime, husbandry care at home and veterinary procedures will be necessary. It’s our job to prepare dogs to be calm and confidence with everyday husbandry and ensure vet visits are as stress-free as possible or you could end up with years of struggle and upset for both yourself and your pet.

Whether your dog is tolerant and resilient of vet visits depends on many factors, such as his personality, previous experience, and handling by his guardian and any veterinary professionals he comes in contact with.

This course takes you through practical and appropriate Tellington TTouch Method techniques and exercises, as well as other non-invasive solutions, to helping your dog, and those you work with, find the handling and veterinarian experience less stressful.

This course is suitable for those with or without Tellington TTouch experience.  Can count as an Elective for Practitioner Certification (6 credits).  This course can also be done in a stand-alone, Self-Paced Online Course.

The Tellington TTouch Method is a gentle, hands-on approach that improves well-being, behaviour, cooperation and the relationship people have with animals. It includes the use of a specialized form of bodywork, specific types of equipment and creative movement exercises that are easy to learn and used with all types of animals.

Most importantly, the Tellington TTouch Method facilitates trust and enhanced communication between humans and animals.  TTouch can be integrated into daily life to increase confidence, reduce stress, improve focus and enhance well-being, making TTouch perfect for busy people!

These techniques are easy to learn and provide many solutions to common concerns by recognizing each animal and person as unique individuals.  Rather than a set protocol for particular issues, the Tellington TTouch Method offers creative solutions customized to each situation.

This module encompasses the “Bodywork” component of the Tellington TTouch Method, one part of the whole.  This introductory module is a wonderful addition to anyone interested in bodywork, enhancing their relationship with their animals, those who practice animal massage, or animal guardians with senior animals looking to help enhance well-being and function.

This course will focus on applying the Tellington TTouch to dogs, cats, and people, as well a few other species, however once you learn the concepts and techniques, you will find that you can use and adapt the work for virtually all species!

*This course counts as 10 credits towards becoming a Certified Tellington TTouch Practitioner.  No prior experience with the Tellington TTouch is required.
