Tellington Touch (T-Touch) Training:
An Innovative Approach to the Care and Training of Companion Animals

With Kathy Cascade:
Certified T-Touch Practitioner, 3rd level

Does your animal have any of these problems? T-Touch can help!

  • Excessive Barking & Chewing
  • Leash Pulling, Jumping Up
  • Aggressive Behavior
  • Extreme Fear & Shyness
  • Resistance to Grooming
  • Excitability & Nervousness
  • Car Sickness
  • Problems Associated With Aging
  • Something else?

What is T-Touch?

  • Tellington Touch (TTouch) is a specialized approach to the care and training of our animal companions. TTouch helps to release tension and increase body awareness. This allows the animal to be handled without provoking typical fear responses. The animal can then more easily learn new and more appropriate behaviors. By using a variety of other tools that also assist the animal to experience a sense of confidence in previously frightening situations, even the most difficult problems are often eliminated. This gentle method is easy to learn and is currently being used by animal owners, trainers, breeders, veterinarians, and shelter workers in several countries.
     
  • Developed by internationally recognized animal expert, Linda Tellington-Jones, this method offers a positive approach to training. Based on cooperation and respect for our animal friends, these techniques promote optimal health and behavior by eliminating fear and reactive responses.
     
  • Using a combination of specific touches, lifts, and movement exercises, the TTouch work enables an animal to learn new behavior more easily. Even the most difficult problems are often eliminated with just a few sessions.
     
  • You can learn to apply the TTouch to eliminate inappropriate behaviors, assist with recovery from illness or injury, or just enhance the quality of your animal's life.
