Title: Getting in TTouch with Your Dog: A Gentle Approach to Influencing Behavior, Health, and Performance

Clear explanations of proven methods to enhance the dog-owner relationship are the cornerstone of this newly revised manual. The Tellington TTouch Method is currently being used not only by dog owners but also by trainers, breeders, veterinarians, and veterinary technicians, as well as in animal shelters around the world. Using a combination of 22 specific TTouches, leading exercises, and exercises over obstacles, a dog’s performance and health is improved. Dog owners will learn to help their dog through a variety of problems, including excessive barking and chewing, leash pulling, jumping up and aggressive behavior, fearful biting or timidity, resistance to grooming, and hyperactivity or nervousness. Case studies showing different breeds demonstrate how many owners, some at their wits end, have used the TTouch Method to solve all manner of difficulties.

A NEW EDITION with updated material and new photos!

When you think of your dog what is the first characteristic that comes to mind? His “smile,” his gentle companionship, his good-natured bark when he sees a “friend”? Or, do you immediately think of his “bad habits”—
maybe his tendency to jump up on people, the “accidents” he sometimes has in the house, or the way he pulls when you go for a walk?

Every dog is an independent spirit and a unique being made up of a fascinating mixture of what you might call “bad” and “good.” Now, in this new edition of the international bestseller Getting in TTouch with Your Dog, acclaimed animal expert and companion animal trainer Linda Tellington-Jones explains that the “idea” of your dog that you hold within, the picture you have in your mind, has a great deal to do with how he ultimately behaves.

“Change your mind, change your dog,” is one tenet of Linda’s renowned Tellington Method. By thinking of your dog in “perfect” terms, you can come a long way in solving problematic behaviors, training for a joyful partnership, and ensuring health and well-being.

Added to this “perfect dog state of mind” is Linda’s course in gentle bodywork, known throughout the world as “Tellington TTouch.” This series of circular touches on your dog’s body, using different pressures and patterns, has been scientifically proven to reduce stress, speed healing, and increase focus and the ability to learn.

TTouch is complemented by specialized training equipment, carefully chosen to provide the handler optimal means of communication without the use of force, as well as Linda’s Playground for Higher Learning, a ground course of obstacles developed as a fun way to improve your dog’s attention, willingness, and confidence. Altogether, Linda provides the ultimate reference for safe, gentle, idealistic care for and training of dogs, all ages, breeds, and sizes.
