 TESTIMONIALS > Harriet, A Dalmation, Becomes Confident With Noises & Life!
 
   Testimonial:
  HARRIET, A DALMATION, BECOMES CONFIDENT WITH NOISES & LIFE!
Testimonial By: Dorothy Berry        Publish Date: 2004-09-01

Letter from Dorothy Berry to Practitioners Niki Elliott & Karel du Plessis

As requested, here is how my 18-month-old Dalmatian Harriet is doing after her TTouch sessions with you.  In short, a huge difference.  At training classes she does what she’s supposed to do without demur, so long as it’s not repeated too often (but refusal to do continued repeats is a Dalmatian trait anyway - "I’ve already shown you I know what to do, why do I have to do it again?"). 

She still didn’t want to go through the oil drums for Agility, rolling on her back if I tried to insist. Then she missed three Saturdays as she was in season, so I took her mother Wendy who loves doing Agility.  When Harriet came home, I arranged to take both of them to one session and we sent Wendy through the drums first.  Harriet followed her without hesitation, even though her lead got stuck on the stay while going through the first one, holding her in one position halfway along.  She willingly went through the others after that so was obviously unfazed by it. 

Unfortunately, my car was stolen that day, so she hasn’t been to Obedience and Agility since then.  However, we got a lift to Goldfields Show.  While she was in the ring a helicopter went low over the ring three times.  Before TTouch when they went over our garden and not nearly so low, she used to take flight, she was terrified.  But now she just stood completely unconcerned  - I was more worried about it than she was!  She went on to get the cup Reserve CC and for Best Junior!

I had occasion to use some TTouch on Cadi, my 11-year old, we were out for a walk when she was attacked by two Boerboels, the male ripped a 10-centimetre gash in her throat and picked her up and shook her like a rat, apparently trying to break her neck.  By the time the vet saw her, she was quite calm and even wagging her tail and I’m sure the touches helped to do that.  She has made a complete recovery.
