“Excellent day - I thoroughly enjoyed the seminar and would recommend it to anyone who has any interest in dogs. I think it was suitable for both dog trainers and dog owners.”
“Enjoyed the seminar very much - Toni is a great orator, speaking with a relaxed manner, that is perfect for the audience to absorb what is being said. Interesting and informative with an air of fun, I thought it a superb talk that held my concentration throughout. It reinforced much of my present thinking towards my canine family members but loved the information that was new to me and am sure my dogs will thank you very much for helping me understand them better.”
“Toni has made a huge difference to Badger, and has given me a lot of knowledge and techniques to use at home. Storm has also had TTouch from her at different shows, and loves it. Toni is amazing with animals, she communicates on their level and fascinates me the way she connected with Badger in a very stressful situation, for him, in a hall he had never been to before and with an audience. I have never met anyone who sees so much communication from what I see as a slight movement or a glance! Janice Bridges”
“Hi Toni, thought I'd share with you how t-touch is helping Febee! She's allowed me today to clip 6 claws which is amazing for her as she would pull her paws away and tuck them underneath herself! But she has allowed me to clip 6 so far in one session after doing clouded leopard touches for the past 3 weeks. I'm in awe of how fantastic t touch is! Both her and Pablo have been wearing their wraps every other day for a few minutes and they are much more aware and focused when we train. Thank you so much for the workshop, t touch continues to be a part of our weekly routine and I'm really seeing a difference! Kayleigh.”
“Hi Toni I am pleased to report that Byron is a very happy boy. He and Wellington are both enjoying TTouch. My house has been transformed to a peaceful doggy haven again and the buys are playing happily together just like they used to! Thank you ever so much for sharing TTouch with us and providing invaluable advice and support. Paula.”
“Hello Toni It’s been over a year since Missy and myself visited you. We have been working with Dog Communication, in Missy’s rehabilitation. I have used the body wraps at home and out-and-about, keeping Missy calm and balanced. At the Dog Communication classes we have been using ground work techniques, which I have used since we had the sessions by your garage.”
“It’s been a long slow path to calmness for Missy, with her first chilled out visit to the vets yesterday. Wearing her body wrap, and lying calmly on a piece of bedding she let the vet check her over and make the necessary inoculations. This was a defining moment for me, after 2 years concentration and training (and that is just me). At home she still gets excited, and some days we do get the wrap around, and it’s like a “chill pill”. This has been a stress reliever for everyone. I still use the strokes and hand movements that we discussed to reinforce the calming effect. Sometimes even along the gum line.”
“I got a copy of your book last year, it was a really good read. And I have been watching the videos as they are published. They are great snapshots of information. ”
“I thought you might like to hear how we were getting on, I just wanted to share good news. Kind regards Celia Stocker and Missy”
“Thank you again for a very absorbing, thought provoking day last Saturday at the TTouch demo - I took a lot away from it and felt able to 'have a go' at home. I used a body wrap on Spryte plus attempted some gum rubbing and springboks one evening, when I would have usually ended up pursuing the behavioural time out routine to contain her excitement. I have to say even my non-believing Husband had to admit there was a definite result gained!! I have tried a little out on my 'don't touch me' boy too, and he's started presenting his shoulders for attention in the evenings-it's lovely to be able to do something for him that doesn't seem to be stressful for him. I am really looking forward to learning more myself, and seeing you work with Spryte more. Kind regards, Karen Cameron”
“Hi Toni Do you remember Macci? He has come such a long way – supported all the way with TTouch! I do feel pretty proud of his progress, no more tail chasing, biting himself, collapsing from fear, crying, depression, clumsiness and flashbacks. Now we’re working on social skills! Christine”
I met you at the ‘Help my dog is scared of fireworks’ workshop you delivered with Family Dog Services in early October with Bryher my Golden Retriever.
I wanted to thank you and share my experience of TTouch with you. You may recall that my dog had a mystery lameness that is under investigation and as you can imagine it has been a challenging few months as she has been on restricted exercise and has therefore been rather lively at a time when we needed to keep her quiet! Following on from the workshop I continued practising the TTouch techniques that I had learnt from you and Bryher seemed to enjoy them and it helped to keep her relaxed.
The lameness did improve so we went on holiday which involved a number of new experiences. The first night, after a long car journey, we stayed in a B & B and on arrival Bryher was really unsettled so I tried TTouch. I can’t thank you enough, within less than a minute she relaxed and went straight to sleep! I also practiced TTouch on the boat, in various locations whilst away and have continued on our return.
TTouch has also helped with Bryher’s anxiety of the dogs next door and when we had the occasional bark at fireworks, although fireworks don’t seem be too much of an issue which is great.
“Its was a brilliant, insightful, valuable, hands on 2-day workshop. Thank you for the ttouch tuition”
