When you think of your dog what is the first characteristic that comes to mind? His 'smile'? His gentle companionship? His good-natured bark when he sees a 'friend'?

Or, do you immediately think of his 'bad habits' — maybe his tendency to jump up on people, the 'accidents' he sometimes has in the house, or the ways he pulls when you go for a walk?
Every dog is an independent spirit and a unique being made up of a fascinating mixture of what you might call 'bad' and 'good'. Now, in this new edition of the international bestseller Getting in TTouch with Your Dog, acclaimed animal expert and companion animal trainer Linda Tellington-Jones explains that the 'idea' of your dog that you hold within, the picture you have in your mind, has a great deal to do with how he ultimately behaves.
'Change your mind, change your dog' is one tenet of Linda's renowned Tellington Method. By thinking of your dog in 'perfect' terms, you can come a long way in solving problematic behaviours, training for a joyful partnership and ensuring health and well-being.
Added to this 'perfect dog state of mind' is Linda's course in gentle bodywork, known throughout the world as 'Tellington TTouch'. This series of circular touches on your dog's body, using different pressures and patterns, has been scientifically proven to reduce stress, speed healing and increase focus and the ability to learn.
TTouch is complemented by specialised training equipment, carefully chosen to provide the handler optimal means of communication without the use of force, as well as Linda's playground for Higher Learning, a ground course of obstacles developed as a fun way to improve your dog's attention, willingness, and confidence. Altogether, Linda provides the ultimate reference for safe, gentle, idealistic care for and training of dogs, all ages, breeds and sizes.
