TTouch: The Gentle Touch That Teaches

Foster dogs have special needs and challenges. Each has it’s own story to tell and comes to the foster parent with it’s own quirks and personality traits that are both endearing and sometimes frustrating.

Do you ever wish you could help reduce the stress they feel? Maybe help them relax so they could learn more, work through their tough beginnings and be placed in their forever home? Do you ever work with dogs that bark, pull on their leash or get really excited? Maybe the dog is fearful or lacks confidence.

TTouch can help make your experience together better for you and your dog. TTouch is The Tellington Touch Method created by internationally known animal expert, Linda Tellington-Jones, 30 years ago. This unique approach is a gentle animal body massage that helps with stress reduction, behavior issues and overall wellness. TTouch is a combination of circles, strokes and lifts as well as ground exercises that help animals relax and focus so they engage their brain, not just react. Think about how your body reacts when frightened or under stress! It can be hard to focus and pay full attention to what’s going on around you. The same thing happens with animals, and TTouch helps them become more aware of their bodies and more fully present. And it is not only helpful but fun, and each dog owner can learn how to do it.
