3 Day Tellington TTouch for Companion Animals: Rupert, QC
May 11 - May 13
Tellington TTouch for Companion Animals
Teacher: EdieJane Eaton – Tellington TTouch Method Instructor
Location: Rupert, QC (Near Ottawa, ON)
Tellington TTouch is a low-stress way of working with all animals to help them feel and behave better through a process that restores physical vitality, mental focus and emotional balance.
This workshop focuses primarily on dogs, and address their behaviour, health, and general well being, or can focus on specific demands associated with working, competition or sport.
There is a lot of hands-on practice, and help with your own animal if you bring one. It is expected that the majority of participants will want to bring a dog (or cat) to the course, although it is not required.
The curriculum will include both TTouch (bodywork) and – for dogs – Confidence Course (groundwork) techniques, and give you skills for working with animals in kind, clear, safe, and effective ways. You will learn how to observe the many – sometimes very subtle – ways that animals let us know how they feel about what we do with them. This helps us to determine the most effective ways of helping them. We will also discuss the principles behind TTouch, so that you can become creative in problem-solving.
Participants at TTouch workshops speak of seeing with new eyes, developing new insights into how animals learn, discovering more successful ways of coping with difficulties, and – best of all – coming away knowing that they can make a difference in the lives of animals.
