Puppy Control Unleashed® PLUS Obedience

Puppies who are not taught certain skills right away can develop severe behavior problems in adulthood. This 10-week class teaches these critical skills by combining Control Unleashed (by Leslie McDevitt) with early obedience. From calmness to impulse control, as well as cues like “come” and “drop it,” this class is designed to provide you and your puppy with a solid foundation of skills to set you up for a lifetime of success.

In this course, you will learn how to:

  • Address nipping and jumping
  • Build relaxation and calmness
  • Teach and support appropriate greetings with people
  • Reduce fear, anxiety, and over-excitement around other dogs
  • Promote attention to handler in new environments
  • Teach a default safety leave it behavior
  • Support focus around distractions
  • Keep your pup busy with enrichment and confidence-building exercises
  • Teach and strengthen “come,” “leave it,” “drop it,” and other basic obedience skills

Before the first class, you will receive a pre-recorded lecture (via email). You must watch this lecture before the first class, as it will cover important concepts (in place of an in-class lecture), which will maximize training time.

You will need the following:

  • Control Unleashed® book
  • Balance harness (by Blue-9 online)
  • 6-ft leash
  • Portable mat (e.g., Mutt Mat online)
  • Treat bag (e.g. Rapid Rewards on Amazon)

Control Unleashed® (CU), developed by Leslie McDevitt ,and Behavioral Advancement Training (BAT) rehabilitate and prevent dog reactivity. This 16 week class will examine the function of growling, lunging, or fleeing behaviors and help the dogs learn socially acceptable behaviors that serve the same function.

CU and BAT will empower you and your dog as you learn how to understand your dog while your dog learns to safely interact with people and other dogs. You will learn:

  • How to encourage or shape a "replacement behavior" that provides your dog with the same function as the unwanted behavior.
  • Why it's important to keep your dog calm in the presence of a trigger while teaching him to make good choices.
  • Practical ways to keep your dog from being pushed into a reactive state in and around your home and on walks.
