Animals with behavioral challenges
TTouch can positively improve behavior in dogs. Whether the behavior challenge you are dealing with is leash reactivity, excessive barking, over arousal, distractibility, leash pulling, or something else, adding TTouch to your training plan can make all the difference. The TTouch method can help build focus, cooperation, confidence, relaxation, and self-control in your dog.

Anxious and fearful animals
TTouch has been shown to calm animals, release tension, and restore confidence. Dogs who suffer from separation anxiety, sound sensitivities, handling concerns, and other fear related issues greatly benefit from TTouch.

Geriatric animals
TTouch is a non-invasive way to alleviate daily aches and pains and provide comfort to our aging animals. It also provides support to animals recovering from injuries, surgeries, or other health issues.

Young animals
TTouch is a wonderful way to build cooperation and confidence in your puppy. Exposure to new experiences in a thoughtful manner will put you on a path to a well-adjusted adult dog.

Us humans!
TTouch can improve your observation skills and ability to manage stress in your dog. It also can enhance your leash handling skills and boost your confidence when working with your dog.
