Canine/human communication what’s new?

This 45-minute presentation will summarise some of the latest scientific evidence regarding what we understand about how humans and dogs communicate with each other. We will be looking at the importance of directional tail wagging; what we can infer from a dogs gaze; how our emotions affect our dogs response; what happens in dogs brains when they hear a familiar voice; ‘whether dogs are able to copy our instructions and understand what pointing means, amongst lots of other really interesting stuff. Not to be missed information that will enable you to communicate even more effectively with your canine companion.

Identifying canine body language and communication

This 45 min part theory/ part practical session will breakdown the communication signals that dogs give to humans, and to each other, we will analyse body language, posture and social interactions between species, and give you the opportunity to test your knowledge by taking part in fun and interactive exercises to further your learning.

Briony Price

Briony Price is a Tellington Touch Practitioner P1 for Companion Animals. She qualified in 2009 and has since worked with many animals presenting with a wide range of issues, mainly dogs. Although dogs are her primary animal to work with, she has also worked with cats, hedgehogs, hawks, meerkats, snakes and skunks, to name but a few. Lately, her passion is in the use of Ttouch during rehabilitation, particularly with Vestibular Disease, and how this is complementary with chiropractic & physiotherapy.

The Tellington Ttouch has been around for over 30 years and was first developed by Linda Tellington Jones and is now used worldwide by trainers, vets, physiotherapists, behaviourists and right through to the animal owners & carers. It is a gentle, respectful way of working with animals. As posture and behaviour are linked, we use bodywork (touches) and groundwork (slow movement exercises) to help release tension patterns that the animal is holding, which in turn brings about changes in behaviour. As practitioners, observations are key and we will note movement, posture, balance, muscle development and coat changes amongst other things to see what areas we need to work in. Ttouch works really well alongside conventional veterinary care and is extremely beneficial during rehabilitation from injury or surgery. This quiet, gentle approach makes Ttouch a valuable tool to use by anyone working with or handling animals.
