Learn how to turn stress to confidence and distraction to focus using methods that are 110% positive. Leslie McDevitt's Control Unleashed® program is designed to help "dogs with issues" learn how to relax, focus, and work off-leash reliably in either stimulating or stressful situations. Whether you're training a challenging dog on your own or an instructor trying to figure out how to help dogs in your classes, this book is for you.
Who needs Control Unleashed®?
- Future performance dogs that need to learn self-control as part of their foundation training
- Dogs that are uncomfortable or unable to work off lead around other dogs
- Dog that are easily distracted and have difficulty concentrating
- Dogs that are reactive or easily aroused
- Dogs that are anxious or stressed and shut down
- Dog that are unable to control their impulses when excited
Lesson plans for a seven-week class are included for instructors who want to run their own Control Unleashed® classes. Rather than using traditional attention and control techniques that often fail in highly charged performance situations, Control Unleashed® uses a creative and sensible series of training games that can be customized to the needs of each particular dog. The Control Unleashed® program also stresses the importance of balancing attention and control work with letting your dog "be a dog."
