Tellington TTouch, with Toni Shelbourne


Friday 27 October 2017, Woking

Learn to observe subtle postural changes in your dog and find about the links to their behaviour or performance. Learn some of the special TTouches to release tension from the body and help posture improve, as well as some of the equipment we use to promote change.

This one-day workshop is for trainers, behaviourists, veterinary staff, owners and handlers who compete with their dogs, dog walkers and groomers, in fact anyone involved with dogs. It’s an excellent method to be used around fireworks time, following on to Toni’s talk about fireworks. But your dog does not have to have an issue for you to benefit from attending and learning more.

If you think your dog might struggle in an indoors learning environment with other dogs, simply book a spectator’s space instead.

Toni Shelbourne has worked with domesticated and wild canids since 1989. After a long and successful career with the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, she started her own business as a Tellington TTouch Companion Animal Practitioner. She is now one of the highest qualified practitioners in the UK. In 2001 her skills in TTouch took Toni to the UK Wolf Conservation Trust were she meet a pack of socialised wolves. She went on to work with them for over a decade as a Senior Wolf Handler and Education Officer for the organisation. Through observing the wolves she has a unique insight into their behaviour. This led to her questioning the ingrained ideas about the alpha theory with dogs, ideas that were often in conflict with her own knowledge and observations.

Today she advises wolf organisations and zoos on wolf behaviour and management.

Toni teaches all over the UK and abroad, works with clients one-to-one, runs workshops and writes books. Help! My Dog’s Scared of Fireworks the first of several Help! My Dog books, co-authored with Karen Bush.
