TTouch for Birds Workshop will provide a foundation in the
basic TTouch, which can then be used on your own pets.
The Tellington TTouch® Method of Training is a focused
approach to animal care and behavior modification. TTouch
also provides a foundation for a gentler, more enjoyable,
stress-free relationship with your animal companion. This
revolutionary and gentle method can be used as a stand-
alone training tool or in support of other training
methods; for wellness care and in support of veterinary
care. The TTouch Method consists of circular TTouches,
stroking and lifting TTouches, Body Wraps, Leading
Exercises, and the Confidence Course.
How can TTouch® help your pet?
Because it actually teaches animals how to feel
differently about themselves, it directly addresses many
behavioral issues through boosting self-esteem and
confidence. It also aids focus and clarity of direction,
stress reduction, and respiration.
TTouch promotes optimal performance and wellbeing by
supporting your animal's health and veterinary care, and
is an effective complement. It assists by boosting the
immune system, facilitates circulation and respiration,
and helps alleviate pain and discomfort. Aging animals can
benefit with improved quality of life and TTouch assists
with recovery from illness or surgery.
Mary Bruce, CTTP and Peggy Marks, CTTP run Mindful Tails,
a company that provides TTouch and other services for
cats, dogs, birds, small mammals, farm animals and others.
They are Guild Certified Practitioners of the Tellington

Adoption Festivals in NYC. They also work closely with a
number of animal welfare organizations, using TTouch in
TNR (trap, neuter and release) and rescue. In their work,
they host lectures, demos, and workshops on TTouch for
veterinary staff, trainers, and individuals, as well as
