Tellington TTouch


I have been a certified Tellington TTouch Practitioner for Companion Animals since 2001, and incorporate many TTouch® techniques into my regular interactions with animals.

Tellington TTouch, often simply referred to as TTouch®, is a therapeutic modality intended to promote, assist and enable the body to heal, grow and thrive.

The Tellington TTouch can help in cases of:

  • Excessive Barking & Chewing
  • Leash Pulling
  • Jumping Up
  • Aggressive Behavior
  • Extreme Fear & Shyness
  • Resistance to Grooming
  • Excitability & Nervousness
  • Car Sickness
  • Problems Associated With Aging
  • And Much More!


Using circular patterns of touch on the body, TTouch® is designed to activate and enhance the body’s functioning at a cellular level, awakening and improving cell function - a little like “turning on the electric lights of the body”.

Research has shown that the circular touches stimulate the entire spectrum of brain waves in both the giver and the receiver of the touch. Consequently, performing TTouch® with your dog will benefit you both, and additionally is a great way to improve your connection to, and awareness of, your dog.

Since it is not necessary to have any “medical” understanding of anatomy to perform TTouch®, I recommend and can teach interested clients how to do the basic touches at home, enabling them to help their animals heal quicker from injuries or ailments, or change undesirable habits or behavior.

If you would like to learn TTouch® and start making a positive difference in your pet’s life, call me today at 505-506-8654.

More About TTouch®

The Tellington TTouch is a specialized approach to the care of our animal companions, and offers a positive approach to training them. It is premised on cooperation with and respect for the animal, as opposed to many training methods that use fear or intimidation to get the animal to obey. Developed by internationally recognized animal expert Linda Tellington-Jones, this method can improve the animal’s performance and health, and presents solutions to common behavioral and physical problems. It also helps establish a deeper rapport between humans and animals through increased understanding and more effective communication.

Using a combination of specific touches, lifts, and movement exercises, TTouch® helps to release tension and increase body awareness. This allows the animal to be handled without provoking typical fear responses in the animal, and it can then more easily learn new or more appropriate behaviors. Since each TTouch® circle is complete within itself, any amount of TTouch® is beneficial, and is thus useful to owners who have dogs which dislike being touched or handled for any extended period of time. Further, it is typical that dogs positively respond to TTouch®, such that over time they will allow, and even enjoy, more prolonged handling. It also has a calming effect on dogs that tend to be “all over the place” even if they already enjoy being touched.


By using the TTouch® and a variety of other tools, like the Confidence Course, you can help your animal gain self-confidence in the face of what would previously have been a frightening situation, often eliminating even the most difficult problems. You can also learn how to apply the Tellington TTouch to assist with the recovery from illness or injury, or to just enhance the quality of your animal's life.

This gentle method is currently being used by animal owners, trainers, breeders, veterinarians, zoo personnel and shelter workers in countries throughout the world.
