Or are you already a Control Unleashed fan? Come play with us and learn how to apply the Control Unleashed program to your specific situation! Whether it’s for a dog who is too anxious to tolerate strangers walking near them or a dog that is having trouble focusing at an agility trial, we’ve got you covered. Wear a costume, eat some candy, and enjoy the only conference that is so nerdy... IT’S SCARY! And, if Halloween isn't your thing, no worries... you can still have an awesome time being a dog nerd with us!
Join us for the first annual Conference Unleashed! This 3-day virtual conference is focused on exploring the art and science behind the Control Unleashed® program. We'll talk about everything from using CU for behavior modification to applying CU in sport-specific training and with multiple species.
Come learn from some of the world’s most popular presenters about
- Operant conditioning
- Behavior modification
- Start buttons and cooperative training
- Focus and choice
- Essential skills any performance dog needs to be successful at class and trials
Not sure how the broader themes fit into your training plan for your specific sport? Our unique context talks, given by experienced CCUIs (Certified Control Unleashed Instructors), will apply the CU program to various dog sports and daily life activities.
About the conference
Conference Unleashed begins October 30, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time and ends on November 1, 2020 at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Please note that we change from EDT to EST in the wee hours of Sunday morning!
A recorded version of each speaker's presentation will be available for you to watch at the time posted on the schedule. Most of the presentations will be immediately followed by a live Q&A session with the speaker(s).
If you are not available to watch the presentation at the scheduled time, no worries! You can watch it any time it's convenient for you. We'll also be recording the Q&A sessions and panel discussions (barring any technical glitches), and making those available on-demand within 24 hours. So, if you're in a different time zone or aren't available for the entire three days, you can still watch all the content that was presented!
And, to celebrate the first year of this conference, we're giving you lifetime access to these recordings—not just one year!

To watch the recorded presentations or live Q&A sessions in our conference classroom, you will need:
- High-speed internet: Watching the recorded presentations will take less bandwidth than watching the live Q&As because the video playback will be buffered as necessary. If you are unsure whether your internet speed is sufficient to watch the recorded videos, you can test it out by joining the free class in the Clean Run Learning Center. The class focuses on agility training, but there are a number of videos you can test out in that classroom, and you can also get a feel for our online classroom. You will be asked to register when you click the link.
- An up-to-date web browser: Please make sure you are using the latest version (or the one before that) of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Microsoft Edge. You can check your browser version here: https://www.whatsmybrowser.org/
- An up-to-date operating system: Please make sure you are using the latest version (or the one before that) of Windows, macOS, iOS, iPadOS, or Android.
Will there be refunds if there are internet issues or other techological glitches?
No refunds will be issued. Although we are taking all precautions to avoid technological/internet challenges, there may be situations that happen that are outside of our control. There is an inherent risk in presenting live from locations all over the world, and there is the possibility of any number of disruptions or problems, especially with the increased demands on the internet during this pandemic. It may be possible that you are unable to watch some or all of the live sessions. By registering for this event, you acknowledge this risk, and waive any claim of a refund.
If, however, you experience a problem, ALL sessions will be available on-demand for you to watch once the problem is resolved. You will have lifetime access to those recordings.
