Leslie McDevitt Control Unleashed 2 day workshop
Redline Canine Training Center

We are thrilled to share Leslie McDevitt and her Control Unleashed material and exercises with you.  This 2 day workshop will cover a full day of Pattern Games  along with Voluntary Sharing and Requested Approach Training on day 2.  

Leslie McDevitt is a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant (CDBC), internationally renowned speaker and author famous for her popular and powerful program Control Unleashed (often abbreviated as “CU”). Through her classes, seminars, books, and DVDs, Leslie helps dog owners and training instructors turn stress into confidence, and distraction into focus, using methods that are entirely based on positive reinforcement. Her Control Unleashed program is designed specifically to help dogs with “issues” learn how to relax focus and work off-leash reliably in either stressful or stimulating situations.

Pattern Games Day 1

Saturday’s workshop will focus on Pattern Games. These popular games from Control Unleashed allow dogs to initiate a predictable, reliable behavior chain that helps “normalize” challenging environments so they can focus confidently on their work. The patterns are easy and once you get the idea you and your dog can create your own.  

Cooperative Counter Conditioning Day 2

Learn how to use start button behavior to give your dog control over their own counter conditioning experience.

  • If your dog has resource guarding behaviors, or simply wants all the turns, Voluntary Sharing is for you. This training game teaches the dog a ‘start button’ behavior so that he can control when the other dog gets a resource— from treats, to tugging, to doing agility obstacles.
  • Requested Approach Training will present exercises to enable dogs to be in the driver’s’ seat of their own counter conditioning program; it will also give them control over whether something can approach or not, and whether they are ready to approach something or not.

This workshop has 8 working dog spots for each day.
