Linda Tellington-Jones–Creator of Tellington Touch, or TTouch

by | Jun 20, 2005

Linda Tellington-Jones, the veteran animal handler and trainer who created the Tellington Touch, or TTouch, method–a revolutionary technique for handling and training horses, dogs, cats and other domestic animals, and one that’s also effectively applied to exotic animals in zoos and elsewhere–discusses how creating TTouch was an outgrowth of her lifelong passion and experience with horses (as a kid growing up near Edmonton, she rode a horse to & from school every day…later, she addressed the challenges of how to handle and train, or re-train, so-called “problem horses” by devising the TTEAM technique, etc), how the central aim of TTouch has been exploring and honing her notion of “releasing fear at the cellular level,” and more.
