Over the four decades of development, we have amassed a huge library of training articles and case studies for a wide range of species, the bulk being specifically for horses and dogs. While the work is easiest to learn hands-on and in person from someone who is experienced with it, there is a lot to be learned from reading about the concepts and theories surrounding the Tellington TTouch Method.
When referring to “how-to” articles, please keep in mind that every animals is different and we are always ready to adapt and adjust details, or make steps smaller, to help make the exercise more clear and understandable to the animal.
