    Come learn what's new in Leslie McDevitt's groundbreaking Control Unleashed training program!

    In this workshop, Leslie will teach material from her newest book Control Unleashed: Reactive to Relaxed.

    Working dogs will enjoy discovering they can make choices and control outcomes with counter conditioning games such as Pattern Games, Voluntary Sharing, and Requested Approach Training. Using these games and other foundational training from the Control Unleashed program, we will explore how to use voluntary or 'start-button' behavior to empower anxious or reactive dogs to direct their own learning experience.
