Intro to TTouch

Calling all dogs!

Would you like to be the star of your training class, be at your best in new situations, and be healthier than you ever have been before?

Bring your human to the SF SPCA's TTouch Class, and learn the skills to build mutual trust, confidence, self-control, and more!

Tellington Touch (TTouch) was developed by Linda Tellington-Jones and is comprised of gentle body work including circular touches, lifts, and slides.

This class will teach dog owners specialized touches, body wraps, and confidence-building groundwork exercises.
