Control Unleashed

Learn how to turn stress to confidence and distraction to focus using methods that are 100% reward-based! 

This course is appropriate for:

  • Dogs that are uncomfortable or unable to work off lead around other dogs
  • Dogs that are easily distracted and have difficulty concentrating
  • Dogs that are mildly reactive or easily aroused
  • Dogs that are anxious or stressed and shut down
  • Dogs that are unable to control their impulses when excited

This 6-week course revolves around teaching you skills to get better focus and self control from your dog around common distractions. Skills are tailored to develop your dog's impulse control while helping them relax and gain confidence in situations he normally gets aroused and/or distracted in. Class is modeled after the book "Control Unleashed" by Leslie McDevitt.

Please note: This class is
not designed for highly-reactive or aggressive dogs.
(please see our Reactive Rover course).

"We really enjoyed Control Unleashed class. I've taken Chloe to a few different classes through a few different companies, and Laura was by far the best instructor that I've had." ~ Elizabeth & Chloe

"Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed your class and teaching style. I learn much I can use with Shmoo and all our dogs really. I appreciated the structure and the handouts, and also your positive vibe as we all worked towards setting our dogs up for success. I hope our paths cross again sometime!" ~ Sue & Shmoo

"The Control Unleashed class was a great place to practice skills without the instructor being judgemental because my dog had difficulty staying in control. I discovered - and rediscovered - ways to helping Coup'r stay focused in the presence of dogs." ~ Deb & Coup'r

"Mike and I both thought the course was well-planned out and well-led. The dog-spacing and number of dog was well thought out."

~ Mike, Sydney & Violet
