but, I think all things requiring tact and judgement (not just dog training) just ARE kind of hard to set down unambiguously in words. She continues to explain why impulse control and agility must go hand in paw, providing more games for dealing with poor impulse control on the agility course. This book will show you how to ask your dog yes/no questions rather than give commands; for example, you will ask the dog if the conditions he is in will help or hinder his ability to learn the most functional way to behave for that circumstance. I have long wondered if this is necessary or even desirable but dared not question such a bedrock principle in training, especially without being able to propose an alternative.

McDevitt shows us the There’s a Dog in Your Face Game, which can be used as preparation for even closer encounters, as well as explaining how this applies to real life. With all the baggage my dog has got - I love him dearly for who he is and the exercises are just starting to make his life a lot easier then before.The new concepts and techniques will support you in teaching your dog life skills and coping skills so that he is comfortable in the world, building relationships, empowering your dog, and creating a two-way system of communication between you and your dog. Leslie McDevitt’s versatile Control Unleashed program is designed to help “dogs with issues” learn how to relax, focus, and work off-leash reliably in either stimulating or stressful situations. Leslie has served in many capacities (including president and obedience training director ) at Y2K9’s Dog Sports Club.

Dogs that are uncomfortable or unable to work off lead around other dogs Dog that are easily distracted and have difficulty concentrating Dogs that are reactive or easily aroused Dogs that are anxious or stressed and shut down Dog that are unable to control their impulses when excited This training program can change your dog’s life!

In chapter nine, McDevitt discusses applying control unleashed to agility contexts, starting with the warm up before moving on to running the sequence. In chapter six, McDevitt works on increasing both enthusiasm and focus in a distracting environment, by teaching the Give Me A Break game, a simple and powerful way to increase the dog’s attention and eagerness to work with you. So, finding this program helped me see how to help my reactive dog and owner read, communicate, and bond better, so trust could surface. So, definitely a must-have for any aficionados of the CU systm (and I really think everyone would benefit from these books, to one degree or another). I'm really happy about it and I can't wait to start reading the book to improve the communication with my reactive crazy agility dog.

We are being very patient and it is not easy to always work sub-threshold but when I see that my dog feels a lot better with learning to cope with his triggers rather than having to focus his attention on me most of the time, I feel better too because I know that we will be able to manage his reactivity. Dogs that are uncomfortable or unable to work off lead around other dogs Dog that are easily distracted and have difficulty concentrating Dogs that are reactive or easily aroused Dogs that are anxious or stressed and shut down Dog that are unable to control their impulses when excited This training program can change your dog's life! One of the most common challenges faced by dog trainers is how to effectively manage “problem” dogs in their classes. I haven't competed in agility, but it struck me that at a dog show it was the agility dogs that truly impressed me.Voluntary behaviors have always played a role in Control Unleashed® games, and now more than ever Leslie is focused on giving dogs a "voice" through their behavior; a voice that handlers can easily recognize and respond to. In addition, McDevitt uses the Premack Principle with a twist, and resolves a conflict that has long troubled me about dog training; the expectation that the handler must train the dog to ignore the environment and offer constant attention.

In chapter three, McDevitt mentions how to prepare for the Control Unleashed programme, and also stresses the importance of getting connected with your dog first, sharing some tips on how to do this. Letting the dog make choices and actively participate not only gives the dog control over his own learning, but it also establishes trust and fosters a spirit of communication. Dog owners look to us to keep them safe, ensure an environment conducive to learning and use our special knowledge and skills to handle the out of control dog that threatens to disrupt class.We are also starting our classes completely differently now with "passive attention" time and I feel that my dog is stepping into his class with being more concentrated and attentive. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Later I heard this handler "had a little talk with his dogs, behind a trailer before entering a ring. As with the previous books it does suffer very slightly from the descriptions of procedures being (despite the author's best intentions) a bit opaque and hard to be sure you're following correctly. Patricia McConnell says: “ Control Unleashed combines inspiration and practical advice in equal measure, and is, without question, one of the best books on training to come along in recent years.
