Re-think Trigger Stacking - Shedding some (candle) light on triggers for behaviours we wish to modify or change


TTouch Instructor Edie-Jane Eaton has shared her ‘candle’ concept for many years.  We may all be aware of the term ‘trigger stacking’ but Edie-Jane’s brilliant analogy helps canine guardians look more closely at the multiple ‘candles’ that may be burning for a dog that is struggling to learn or cope with his environment and human led activities.

Several candles may be alight due to internal problems such as pain, patterns of tension through the body, the environment at home including slippery floors, noise sensitivity, the games that are played and the way a dog is touched long before more candles are lit once out in the big wide world. 

Whilst it may not be possible to blow out every candle, there is a lot that we can do to help our clients snuff out the flames, reducing ‘ heat’ and enabling a dog to settle and learn. 

This webinar presentation will also include the following learning objectives

  1. The link between posture and behaviour
  2. Introduction to ACE Free Work
  3. Simple leash handling techniques to reduce body tension
