Using TTouch for Conformation

In this 5 week course, we’ll learn basic Tellington TTouch methods and apply them to conformation handling training.

 

We’ll learn what Tellington TTouch is and how it can improve performance in the ring by increasing body awareness, building confidence, and enhance the bond between dog and handler.

 

This is not a traditional handling class – we will not do practice run throughs until week 3 when we begin to put the skills together. We will learn about working with different types of equipment, using calming touch, and working with various surfaces and obstacles.

 

We’ll also learn a couple of useful TTouch wraps and when to use them – and how you can incorporate both touch and wrapping into show day without unduly messing up your dog’s show grooming. Tellington TTouch blends well with positive training methods, and is a great addition to any handler’s toolbox.

Cost:  $120
