Who is this Class for?
This class is for dogs who struggle with calming down, exhibit anxious or reactive behavior, or have difficulty focusing. It is also a great option for new pet parents or someone looking to take their training journey beyond basic manners.
What is control unleashed®?
Control Unleashed® was developed by Leslie McDevitt and outlined in her books and DVDs. The program was originally designed to help dogs learn how to relax, focus, and ultimately work off-leash. In Leslie McDevitt's latest book, Control Unleashed: Reactive to Relaxed, she introduces pattern games that help your dog translate unfamiliar or overstimulating environments into a familiar, predictable framework.
What will you learn?
The CU program uses “conversational” training and its underlying principles are based on the behavior modification concepts of desensitization and counter-conditioning. In this class, we will focus on CU Foundation Behaviors and Pattern Games. Default behaviors give your dog a repertoire of socially acceptable methods of engaging with you and others. Pattern Games help your dog to process the environment while remaining engaged and able to focus. Through the program you will learn how to understand and empower your dog, and your dog will learn to make good behavioral choices.
How does it work?
I will introduce concepts, demonstrate exercises, and assign homework each week. We will meet for one hour on Zoom for interactive coaching sessions and discussion of the material. Participants are also encouraged to share videos or ask questions online for additional feedback during the week.
