If you’ve been struggling to control your dog’s reactive behaviors, we can help! You can finally enjoy walks with your dog without feeling embarrassed or frustrated. Enroll today and see the amazing transformation in your dog’s behavior for yourself!

Learn to communicate effectively and enjoy walks with your reactive dog! Students will learn to create positive feedback loops in the presence of triggers through our online curriculum, as well as weekly group coaching calls with Jenn.

Why go virtual? This allows us to work at the DOG’S pace, which is ultimately the most important, and will set them up for success. In a traditional group class, we have a pace that we have to move at in order to go through all of the curriculum. Going virtual allows for more flexibility, to move at your dog’s pace, and to set learners up of all abilities for the best experience possible.

In addition to 12 weeks of training material and feedback, you will also receive access to an exclusive bonus section! This area is full of tips, tricks, recommended products, and more, exclusively for you and your reactive dog. Students can participate in weekly group coaching calls with Jenn, as well as receive private feedback on their video submissions!

Do you have a Reactive Rover on leash? Does your dog bark, lunge, whine, or stress when seeing other dogs, strangers, or both? This class is for you!

Reactive Rover provides owners with critical handling skills so they they are well equipped to deal with challenges that may arise in their communities, and provides dogs with the life skills that they need to exist comfortably and thoughtfully in environments that previous provoked anxiety and heightened arousal levels and reactivity.

Students will learn to create positive feedback loops where there were only negative ones. Your dog will learn that the wide, wide world is still an unpredictable place but that he/she can rely on you to keep them safe. They will develop a new behavioral repertoire to meet that unpredictability, and that will take the second-guessing out of everything you do with your dog.

This is a 6 week course meeting once weekly for 45-60 minutes.

Control Unleashed: The Puppy Program is meant as “preventive medicine” for puppy raisers.

Many common behavior problems can be either prevented or minimized by starting a puppy with good foundation training from the beginning. In addition, this program provides a program that will help you create a puppy with the ability to focus on whatever you want, for as long as you want, whenever you want. “Paying attention” is its own skill set and teaching it should be separate from teaching your puppy more complex behaviors. Without attention, you won’t get as far as you want with all those other behaviors you’re going to teach because it’s likely they will fall apart in the face of distraction. So it is wise to teach the attention skill set as the “base of operations” for your puppy training.

The attention skill set includes: Discrimination skills, self-control skills, and arousal regulation skills. The concepts and suggestions in this book can also be used for rescue dogs that, like puppies, are starting out as “blank slates” as far as your training is concerned.

THESE SKILLS CAN CHANGE YOUR DOG’S LIFE!

Minimum Pre-requisites:

  • Control Unleashed class is not a replacement for Basic Obedience and is not a introductory course.
  • Handlers should be familiar with marker training either a Clicker or a verbal marker (ie: Yes)
