Pulling on the lead

TTouch, changing behaviour through posture

Introduction to Tellington TTouch

Welcome to my second 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.  TTouch is non-invasive, and can be used alongside other care.

This month:  Dogs pulling on the lead

A simple solution to a common problem can be to swap your flat collar for a harness and walk your dog with two points of contact.  This stops the opposition reflex response that allows the dog to pull, it literally takes away the ability to pull.  Alongside groundwork and Ttouches, dogs relax into walking calmly very quickly.  No tricks, no gadgets, no pain to your animal, just changing your dog’s balance – and yours!

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.
