15 min mini-TTouch session

Last week I was asked to help a friend stop his dog pulling on the lead.  I walked down to his house with kit bag in tow and was met with a fabulous gentlemen and his very excited, but well mannered springer spaniel.

I showed this gentlemen a very simple way of holding a long lead from his original collar, around the dog’s chest, back up to the handler.

All tension was taken off the collar and the only points of contact were on the dog’s chest.

Instantly the dog did not pull away, but calmly walked alongside his owner for the first time on a lead ever.   This is not magic, but just working with the knowledge that dogs can’t pull if there is nothing to pull against, and offering a different way to be in balance.

A TTouch session would normally have been an hour, but in just 15 mins, showing one simple exercise, the gentleman had a dog that could be walked, taking more interest and focus on him, and not dragging him across busy roads and the fields.

Hurrah for TTouch

Contact me if you would like to be shown the nightly balance leash.  its not a miracle, its not expensive, and it works.  What could be better. ?!

TTouch, changing behaviour through posture

Introduction to Tellington-Touch

Welcome to my third blog about this unique, holistic and positive method of working and bonding with your animal friends.

My name is Caroline Still and I am a local dog groomer and TTouch Practitioner for companion animals.

Developed by Linda Tellington-Jones over 30 yeas ago, TTouch uses simple body movements (Ttouches) to improve circulation, general health and co-ordination.  These touches help to reduce tension, promoting an overall sense of wellbeing and calm.

TTouch influences the nervous system with highly effective techniques that not just owners, but care-givers such as vet nurses, groomers and dog walkers can learn and use on a daily basis.  T-Touch is non-invasive, and can be used alongside other care.

This month:  Observation

Its amazing what we see when we actually look.  We can learn a lot about our pet’s health and well-being by being observant.  Take some time to really look at your animal, how does it sit, sleep, walk and run? how does its coat sit? does it have any interesting patterns or whirls?  A very clear indication of changing in your pet’s condition can be coat change, simple changes in texture, growth direction and or colour can indicate something going on underneath.  Spend a few minutes this week looking with different eyes, and love your pets for the wonderful animals they are.

To show your animals there is a different, more positive way to be, will be the first stage in a miraculous journey for you both.
