TTouch Mock Anxiety Wrap and Dachshund Anxiety Swaddling Sweater

Tellington Touch or TTouch is a form of massage, ground exercises and training methods that help animals relax and focus, connecting their physical actions with appropriate emotional responses. TTouch is used to release fear, tension, and improve self-confidence so that learning, activity, or socialization can proceed. The Body Wrap is a TTouch technique that uses moderate pressure to comfort the mind and body during periods of stress, travel, loud noises, hyperactivity, or injury.
Builds confidence in your little dogs world.
Please note, not all aids work for all dogs, but this method has a 80% success rate, for more information, you may search Ttouch wraps for dogs online , and decide for yourself if this is right for your dog.
