Control Unleashed: Reactive to Relaxed Online

Does your dog lunge, bark, growl or otherwise overreact to dogs, strangers, fast moving objects or wildlife? Learn techniques to manage your dog’s reactions and help your dog to make good behavioral choices.

What will you learn?

The Control Unleashed program, based on the books by Leslie McDevitt, 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 that will help your dog to relax, focus, and process triggers in the environment. Through the program you will learn how to understand and empower your dog, and your dog will learn to the power of choice. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be eligible for the outdoor Reactive to Relaxed class.

How does Online Training work?

Online dog training includes the same guided instruction, demonstrations, and personal coaching as in-person training while also providing greater flexibility and options. All you need is internet access and a smart phone, tablet, or a computer with a microphone and camera. Just click on the link in your email. It’s as simple as that! 

How is the class structured?

I will introduce concepts, demonstrate exercises, and assign homework each week. We will meet on Zoom once a week 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.
