Sarah Fisher and Anthony Head set up this new organisation with the aim of promoting kind and respectful training clinics and workshops for professionals working with animals. The programme will be extended over the coming years to incorporate educational events for children.
Sarah Fisher and Marie Miller currently teach a six day training programme split into two, three day clinics under the name Cool to be Kind for canine carers, trainers and re-homing centre staff who wish to learn TTouch techniques and training games that they can include in the work that they already do.
These courses enable anyone working with dogs to learn some of the TTouch body work and ground work exercises without enrolling on the three year Practitioner Training Programme.
A certificate of completion is given at the end of the course. Participants on the Cool to be Kind course are encouraged to use all the skills learned during the six day clinic with the dogs in their care but they cannot use the name TTouch nor advertise their services using the TTouch name. They can however state that they incorporate some TTouch into the work that they already do.
The current Cool to be Kind course is full but new dates will be posted soon.
TTouch and Cool to be Kind are registered names.
