Humane training methods are used in all our training. Choke chains (also referred to as check chains) are not used or suggested. Pinch collars and shock collars are not mentioned. Under no circumstances will pain or fear inducing methods be used. Tersia includes clicker training and TTouch® in all courses. If the clicker is not what you would prefer, you will be assisted differently. The main training method remains positive reinforcement.
Tellington TTouch® is a unique approach to training, behaviour and health care developed by internationally known animal expert, Linda Tellington-Jones.
Based on compassion and respect, these techniques promote optimal health and behaviour by building confidence and eliminating fearful or inappropriate responses.
TTouch influences a wide variety of behavioural and health related problems such as excessive barking & chewing, leash pulling, jumping up, aggressive behaviour, fear and shyness, hyper excitability, problems associated with aging, resistance to grooming, separation anxiety, recovery from injury or surgery. This method consists of body work, different uses of equipment and ground work - which is referred to as the playground of higher learning.
