About Me

image courtesy Gabrielle Boiselle | Edition BoiselleI did not know it at the time, but when I created the Tellington Method 4 decades ago as a system of animal training, healing and communication, I was considered a pioneer.

My philosophy that all beings–humans and animals alike–are reflections of the Divine Whole formed the early basis of Tellington TTouch and anchors it today. It allows animals and people relate to one another in a deeper, more compassionate way–a way that furthers inter-species connection and honors the body, mind and spirit of both animals and their people.

As an internationally acclaimed authority on animal behavior, training and healing, I have been lucky enough to give presentations and demonstrations on the TTEAM method at veterinary conferences, universities, equestrian expositions, North American Handicapped Riding Association and the Delta Society world conferences, therapeutic riding associations, Olympic training centers, wildlife rehabilitation conferences, and zoos throughout the world. I never dreamed my life would take me to so many far-away destinations to meet fascinating people and animals.

Through my non-profit organization, Animal Ambassadors InternationalĀ®, I support projects that bring children and animals together to enhance understanding, compassion and quality of life for both humans and animals.

When I’m not traveling and teaching, I live in Hawaii with my husband Roland Kleger and my West Highland Terrier, Rayne, To read about my life and the role TTouch plays in it, click on the “My Blog” tab at the top of this page or on an interesting post, category or comment on the right.
