Control Unleashed Class 

Controlled Unleashed, based on the book by Leslie McDevitt, is all about teaching your dog

how to handle distractions and help increase their confidence and focus.

Your dog will learn how to relax, focus and reliably respond to you even when in highly distracting environments. You (human) will also learn behavior management strategies

and how to regain the dog’s attention when your dog is distracted.

This is a great class for a performance dog, agility dog, excitable dog, service or therapy dog in training, or anyone who wants to improve control of their dog in the public. 


This class is NOT appropriate for Reactive Dogs. If your dog is showing the followings, your dog needs to attend Reactive ReDo instead:
 

  • Barking excessively or/and lunging when he sees the other dogs and cannot be redirected easily

  • Freezes and won’t eat treats when he sees the other dogs

  • Growling and pulling on a leash more intensely  when another dog approaches

  • Shaking, whining, pacing, and trying to hide behind the owner when another dog approaches

5 weeks class. Dogs over 6 months old

Canine Husbandry and Cooperative Care Training 

Unfortunately, sometimes we have to do things (baths, toenail trims, ear cleaning etc.) to our dogs that they may find aversive. Cooperative care training can make a huge difference in reducing your dog’s fear, anxiety, and stress during vet visits, grooming, and in-home care. Step-by-step desensitization training will help increase cooperative skills in dogs. In this class, we will focus on strengthening the communication pathway, teaching skills such as a chin rest, muzzle training, body handling, ear cleaning, eye drop and injection administration and the dreaded nail trimming!

Upcoming: Dog Parkour/ Urban Agility 

Parkour can be very empowering. 

Dog Parkour combines elements of human parkour and dog agility to create appropriate outlets for dogs to jump, climb, balance over, crawl under, and go around different obstacles.

Parkour can be done anywhere. If you have a dog who is not suitable for a group setting due to his/her challenging behaviors, Dog parkour might be the right one for you to try!
