What is TTouch?
Tellington TTouch is a gentle approach to the care and training of our animal companions. Developed by internationally recognized animal expert, Linda Tellington-Jones, this method based on cooperation and respect offers a positive approach to training, can improve performance and health and presents solutions to common behavioral and physical problems. It also helps establish a deeper rapport between humans and animals through increased understanding and more effective communication. Using a combination of specific touches and lifts, wraps and movement exercises, TTouch helps to release tension and increase body awareness. This allows the animal to be handled without provoking typical fear responses. The animal can then more easily learn new and more appropriate behaviours. By using the TTouch and a variety of other tools, like the Groundwork Course, you can assist the animal in experiencing self-confidence in previously frightening situations. You can also learn how to apply the Tellington TTouch to assist with recovery from illness or injury, or just enhance the quality of your animal's life. TTouch may help in cases of:
Who we are?
Two B Fun was started in 2012 by Tracy and Karen Bullivant. We are two sisters and best friends that grew up in a home with dogs. In 1997, we got our first ‘own’ Labradors and started attending an Obedience School. We have since been involved in the Dog Community in South Africa. We got our first two Maine Coon Cats in 2001 and entered our first cat show in early 2002. We have competed with our various Maine Coon cats since then and have also allowed our Maine Coon cats to participate in various advertisements and TV shows. We were first introduced to TTouch in 2002 through a workshop at our Agility School and were eager to find out more. We attended a few additional workshops (dogs and cats) before finally registering for the Practitioner training in Oct 2009. We qualified as Level 1 Practitioners for Companion Animals in April 2012. We had heard about and were interested in Clicker Training and attended Eugenie Chopin’s Clicker Training course in Feb 2008 and have been assisting her on her courses since then. In June 2012, we proudly opened our own Clicker Training school called “Two B Fun”. As much as we enjoy our corporate day jobs, we are passionate about helping people with their animals through TTouch and clicker training.
