It's A Dog's World Training

Control Unleashed

Based on Leslie McDevitt’s acclaimed book of the same name, Control Unleashed is a training program for students and dogs who are ready to begin transitioning to off leash work around distractions. This class is a great fit for those planning to participate in dog sports like agility, but also for any handler of a young, easily distracted, impulsive and/or insecure dog. Emphasis is on handler focus, impulse control, and coming when called in the presence of other dogs, people and other common distractions. Through a series of progressive exercises and games, dogs are set up to make correct, rewardable choices both on and off the leash. This a positive reinforcement-based clicker training class; food and toy rewards are utilized throughout the course.

6 weeks, limited to 6 students $210
