Seminar Title: TTouch® and More for Your Senior Dog
Speaker: Lori Stevens, SAMP, CBATI

Who will benefit from this seminar?

Professionals and pet owners who:

  • Want to help their dog enjoy life again
  • Want to have a deeper understanding and enjoyment of their dog during the aging process
  • Have a senior dog whose mobility is beginning to worsen
  • Have a senior dog who has very limited mobiliity
  • Have a younger dog with pain issues

Seminar Description: TTouch® is a gentle, positive method of bodywork and movement based on more than three decades of results with dogs, horses, and many other animals, including zoo animals. TTouch® is also effectively used with people. TTouch® provides a powerful set of tools and techniques that improve an animal’s behavior, performance, and health. It also enhances the relationship between animals and their human companions.

This workshop offers a holistic, positive, and force-free approach to improving your dog's health and well-being during their senior years.

In this one-day workshop you will be introduced to positive tools and techniques to support your senior dog. The following topics will be covered:

  • The effects of aging and what you can expect
  • Mental, emotional, and physical support for senior dogs
  • Age-related anxiety and how to alleviate it
  • TTouch bodywork to help your senior dog
  • TTouch body and leg wraps to improve gait and awareness
  • Tension patterns and how to alleviate them
  • How to keep a senior dog's mind and body active
  • Movement and conditioning exercises

We'll cover what you can do for senior dogs that are showing movement or gait limitations, e.g. limping, getting up slowly, or neurological changes.

We'll also discuss and demonstrate methods which provide mental and physical stimulation for those with limited mobility.
