Robin will host a full day workshop with Tellington TTouch practitioner Jetta Reis from Make you Dog Smile, which will give the dog handler and canine partner an introduction to the basics of TTouch.
Jetta's workshop techniques will introduce owners to canine language, e.g. calming signals, barking and introductory use of touches, and also groundwork exercises.
TTouch is a system of gentle bodywork and movement exercises, which positively influence behaviour and wellbeing in dogs. TTouch is based on co-operation and understanding and will deepen the relationship between dogs and their people.
Price for this full day workshop is £60.00 for a dog owner with their dog, please note spaces with dogs are limited and this environment may not suit dogs that are extremely reactive.
However, spectator spaces are also available at a price of £20 so dog owners can come without their dogs and spectate during the workshop and get ideas on how to help their reactive dogs to feel calmer.
Refreshments (tea & coffee) are available on the day, but please bring a packed lunch.
Location is the Hyde Park Memorial Orange Hall in Mallusk, the event is from 10am - 4.30pm but registration begins at 9.30am.
Tickets are now on sale here for both dog owners who want to bring their dog along to practise with and also for spectator spaces.
