Tellington TTouch is a method for enhancing the mental, emotional and physical well-being of your companion animal, based on cooperation and respect. It is used to support veterinary care, training and behaviour modification. An additional benefit is increased understanding and more effective communication between humans and animals. It uses a series of circular touches & leading exercises through groundwork equipment, one being the labyrinth. During this session you will learn why the labyrinth may be helpful for your dog and how to lead your dog in balance using some of the TTouch techniques.

The labyrinth is an ancient spiritual tool that is thousands of years old. It’s a single, circuitous path that leads you into the centre and out again. It’s not a maze designed to trick you, confuse you or engage you in decision making. There is one way in and one way out. Walking the “human” version of the labyrinth can help you calm your mind, find your centre, and promote healing and growth.

This session was inspired during a “human” labyrinth walk. We will be exploring the connection between the labyrinth used for TTouch groundwork and the Classical labyrinth. We will close the day with a meditative walk in a Classical labyrinth with both humans and dogs.

Participants may choose to bring a dog, but this is not a requirement. We anticipate there will be a sufficient number of dogs for everyone to experience the labyrinth, walking in balance. Space is limited for 4-legged participants, so register early!

  1. This is a great program. Some of my best labyrinth walks have been with my dog on outdoor labyrinths! Inspired work - I love it.
