Focus & Control: 

Foundations for Creating a Focused and Confident Canine


Does your dog have difficulty paying attention to you around other dogs, people, and distractions? Is he easily aroused and unable to relax? This is a great class for dogs who would have difficulty concentrating in a regular group dog class. This program, which is based on the Control Unleashed books written by Leslie McDevitt, will teach you and your dog how to relax, focus, and work together as a team in stimulating and distracting situations. This class is like no other you have taken. We are shaping behavior, not teaching manners. This class is designed to improve focus, impulse control, and build confidence for dogs and their humans. Class size is kept small (4 dogs) with a trainer and training assistant, so you receive more individual attention. 

~ This class is NOT intended for dogs that are aggressive* toward other dogs or people ~
