T touch

So, i posted an ad on Kijiji to try to find a "growl" class for Enzo ( a while ago before LP found a great peson for me to go to, ) anyways, i got an email back today from a lady who teaches t touch, she is having a seminar and i was wondering if anyone had expirence with t touch and if it helps with aggression. I have also heard it helps with a pets health, it improves circulation and relaxs them. I have read quite a bit about it actually. It was first developed for horses, but now they use it on just about any animal. So anyways, any have experiencce with it, health wise, or other wise?

I dabbled with it when Lucky first came home, and I must admit, it did help with relaxation (he used to stiffen when anyone tried to touch him). I still use several touches with him just for fun when we're cuddling.

Tellington-touch is supposed to help (not an 'easy-fix') with all sorts of emotional and physical problems (even with training too) when applied properly. I'd give it a try if I were you but would make sure the woman is a certified practitioner first.

Thanks for the link, you are so good for resources! i know it wont be an easy fix, but i am hoping it will hel him relax a little bit, and prehaps if i can find a dog that he hasnt met before, that is well controlled and put that dog at his threshhold and do some t touch touches on him. i think that may help him to learn to relax around dogs.

I'm a doggy information junkie .

T-Touch certainly can't hurt. Coupled with strong desensitization and re-conditioning exercises, and Enzo will be on his way to being much more at ease with situations that arouse him now.

Haha, i am well on my way to becoming a dog info junkie, sometimes i just do some random search to see what new info comes up and save the links, i have a good 15 links saved now.

I really think this will help, especially along with the behaviourist!

We all got T-Touch classes as volunteers at the CHS, its a good thing. The dogs love it, its a way to connect with dogs - especially the ones we deal with, strange dogs.

So i got an email from the lady today, with all the info, and i can actually bring Enzo to the class. That way they can help me specfically with his problems and show me exactly what to do. They will provide a dog ( one of their own) if you dont want to bring your own, or if its too far. I really want to bring Enzo, but i am not too sure, it is about an hours drive, not sure how he will do with that, but if i dont feed him breky that morning he should be fine. i really would like to bring him with me to leanr on him. I asked her if there was somewhere i could put him while we are learning the techniques, to play or sleep or anything, as i think he will be freaking out the whole time and i want to really focus on the seminar.
