Arena, Abscesses & Limp

Those of you who have been following my journey with the two horses who are abandoned at our place may remember that they are not at all happy to be touched. This, of course, poses major challenges and has been a source of concern. From time to time, Arena, the mare, has been limping but, [...]

Gold Star for Salma!

Today Salma definitely earned a gold star! A major challenge for her is going into an urban environment because she finds it overstimulating and therefore becomes overexcited. I am sure this is also exacerbated by her poor vision under certain circumstances. We have been working at home doing TTouch groundwork with slalom, poles, labyrinth, ramp [...]

Salma’s Learning Journey with the Ramp and Seesaw

Being used to Sasha who climbed up his ramp to the grooming table without a second thought, it brought me up short when Salma simply refused to even step on it. This reminded me that Sasha had been doing simple agility from puppyhood and accepted doing all kinds of strange things as part of normal [...]

Relief Vs Remorse

19/08/2022 Yesterday Squeaky went into one of the travelling crates by herself and I was able to close the door. Until then she had only put her head and shoulders inside to reach the dish with food but yesterday I pushed the dish to the back of the crate. Of course, when she realised that [...]

Summer Challenges and Incompatibilities

When Squeaky had her babies, she showed all the guile and skill needed for a feral cat to survive. We searched high and low but were unable to discover where she had hidden her kittens. We found the box where they were born, but she had moved them by then. In fact, we though they [...]

TTouch Workshop Day 2

Yesterday we had the second day of the first in-person TTouch workshop in two years. The first pleasant thing was to see that when Balú arrived his tail was not tucked between his legs but out and wagging, albeit a little rapidly and slightly tense. The point is that the difference from last week was [...]

At last! In-person workshops once again!

February 5th. was a red letter day! We had the first in-person Tellington TTouch workshop in over two years. Day two will be on February 12th. It is always heartwarming to see how committed some people are to impriving the life experiences of their pets. It was also great to see the changes, great and [...]

Eliminating Harness Noise

The other day I took Mimi, our little mini pinscher, to visit Leticia Sánchez-Moral who is a myofascial therapist. During our chat she offered an interesting tip to overcome the reluctance some noise sensitive dogs have to having a harness put on due to the noise that the clip makes when it is closed. I [...]

Working with Hypersensitivity

Mimi is a 10 year old mini pinscher who came to us with her mother 5 years ago. Unfortunately her mother is no longer with us. Her mother, Ophie, was a stalwart and fearless little dog  but her daughter is quite the opposite, fearful and hypersensitive and this has increased since losing her mother who [...]

TTouch Tail Circles

As we know, the tail is an extension of the spinal column and as such is part of the nervous system. Many animals, humans included, tend to accumulate tension in the shoulders and lumbar area so working with the tail can help to release this tension. Tail circles are very simple to do. Taking the [...]
