TTouch in Brief

Tellington TTouch ® is a gentle method of bodywork and movement exercises that positively influences behavior, performance and well-being. It increases communication skills and deepens the relationship between animals and their people.  It is used in over 30 countries around the world to influence both behavioral and health problems.

Tellington TTouch ® was created by International Animal Expert Linda Tellington-Jones and includes TTouch bodywork which is a combination of circles, slides and lifts used to reduce stress and relax tension. It also incorporates body wraps and many leading & groundwork exercises for confidence building.

Eugenie

Eugénie Chopin, an American who has lived in South Africa since 1975, studied Tellington TTouch ® in the USA and brought it to South Africa several years ago. Hundreds of people here have experienced and found Tellington TTouch to be useful for both problems and the general well-being of their pets. You'll find more detailed info on our What is TTouch page.

Stress and TTouch

Article By: Claudeen E. Mc Auliffe, M.Ed.

The Chicken or the Egg?

As we and our animals live our lives, our environment makes demands upon us. A thunderstorm, an injection from the vet, the departure of a caregiver, may place us in a situation perceived as threatening, thus evoking an acute stress response. This is called distress. It’s important to realize that distress is not the situation itself, but rather the way we react to the situation. For a state of distress to occur, we must experience something as dangerous. This generates a feeling of anxiety. [1 ]

House Training Your Puppy by Niki Elliot

Puppies are instinctively clean animals and have a natural instinct to “pee & poop” away from their den or sleeping place. Puppies also naturally develop habits of where they would like to eliminate. For example, pups that have a habit of eliminating on grass or dirt would rather not eliminate on concrete or gravel. You can use these natural tendencies for rapid and successful house training.

Eugenie’s Letter - March 2017

Dear TTouch Friends,

I’m sitting here on a Sunday afternoon and it’s raining again! How wonderful that the dams are filling up here in Gauteng, I just wish it were the same all over the country. From my animals perspective however, they love being outdoors and have been restless with all of the time spent indoors. Fortunately we had a good day yesterday and everyone got a bath - Things were getting a bit “spicy” in the house…


It’s actually hard to believe that it’s already March and Robyn will be here in a couple of weeks’ time. I am excited to say that we have added a week-end workshop for Humans – i.e. how can TTouch bodywork and body wraps help people in so many ways.

Seven Reasons to Use Reward-Based Dog Training
It’s amazing what we can do when we use rewards to train our companion animals. Here are some reasons to give it a try.
Dogs Trust recommend the use of rewards in dog training. “In order to be effective and to gain the best results, all training should be based around positive rewards. Positive reward training works because if you reward your dog with something he wants as soon as he does what you ask, he is far more likely to do it again.”

Puppies Are Wonderful

Article By: Niki Elliot

Puppies are wonderful! They stir our instinct to nurture, cuddle & care for a cute little bundle of squirming, living, responsive animal. What better smell than “Puppy Breath”! But puppies are not little children in furry coats and they grow very quickly into adult dogs. Sadly the majority of puppies fail to live long enough to enjoy their second birthday. They suffer from the terminal illness of being unwanted, once the novelty of puppy hood wears off, and they become biting, barking, digging, and chewing tornados. Messing on the Persian carpets and needing to be taken outside at all hours of the night, even in winter. Most prospective owners are simply unaware of the problems that lie ahead.
