Dear James, I want to share a wonderful experience with the Trust Technique. Two Weeks ago, I gave a Tellington TTouch clinic for dogs and their people. One of the participating dogs was very nervous and could keep still. he was whining most of the time and his person had trouble keeping him calm and quiet. In the afternoon of the first day, I wanted to share the TT with the group. I led them into the present State in that I had them focus on the tactile sense, on the visual sense and then on the hearing. And as I told them to focus on a noise (the 3rd step) the nervous dogs threw himself on the floor and gave a deep sigh and was quiet. It was amazing! Thanks for that! Katrien
