Expanded Description:

AABP 2008 Multi-Media Awards for Excellence - Winner of Best Dog Behavior DVD of 2008 - (DVDs related to dog behavior)

Beautifully packaged in individual cases, Leslie McDevitt's versatile Control Unleashed® program is designed to teach dogs and puppies how to relax, focus, and work off leash reliably in stimulating and stressful situations. Instead of using up their energy by getting distracted, excited, or worried about the things going on around them, dogs and puppies learn how to use their energy for focusing on you and the task at hand.

McDevitt's 4-disc DVD set is intended to be used as a companion to the training information and instructions contained in the book, Control Unleashed: Creating a Focused and Confident Dog.

Rather than using traditional attention and control techniques that often fail in highly charged performance situations, Control Unleashed® uses a creative and sensible series of training games that can be customized to the needs of each particular dog. The Control Unleashed® program also stresses the importance of balancing attention and control work with letting your dog "be a dog."

This 4-disc DVD set contains portions of a two-day foundation seminar where Leslie McDevitt works with dogs training in one or more dog sports that are:
* Uncomfortable or unable to work off lead around other dogs
* Easily distracted and have difficulty concentrating
* Reactive and easily aroused
* Stressed and shut down
* Unable to control their impulses when excited


The DVD includes demonstrations for teaching the Look at That! game, mat work, reorienting points, the Whiplash Turn game, Leave It, box work, and more. Learn about reading dogs, building focus, changing attitudes, customizing the Control Unleashed® approach for different dogs, and dealing with real life situations.

This DVD is a must have for any professional trainer dog, sport related or otherwise. I have seen reactive dogs, assistance dogs, and sport dogs go through dramatic behavior changes as the result of the control unleashed program. The games Leslie has created to replace stress with training success are a foundation to any good training.--Angelica Steinker, M.Ed. PDBC, CDBC, NADOI Endorsed, CAP2

Great DVDs, September 21, 2011
Reviewer: Dixie Sick
I had a hard time getting into the first DVD but once I really sat down and listened there was so much help for the over the top dogs and the fearful ones too. Some simple concepts that I never thought of.
 
even without the book, November 21, 2010
Reviewer: dogcatcher
This set is designed to compliment the book. I'm sure the author would want you to read the book to get the full understanding of the exercises in the DVDs but she also comments that assisting people with the book showed her that many people started these capturing exercises in distracting environments, which was not what she intended with the book. If you are familiar with capturing and reorienting, the DVDs would be enough to give you 4 or 5 great exercises for working toward off leash control. Of course without having read the book, it will take awhile to understand what the exercises accomplish as a set. These DVDs show several dogs working with their handlers on each exercise. The author narrates in detail the decision points in training, which she would choose, which the trainer chooses, and why.

One of the most complicated things about training is applying what you learn to different dogs. This DVD takes you through enough dogs to have a set of options in your training plan BEFORE you start which saves you from finding out in practice.
 
Awesome companion to the book, September 10, 2010
Reviewer: Nick Hof
This seminar was really well done. The quality and sound was fantastic.

Not all of the information in the book is covered in the seminar and so you really need to read the book to get everything Leslie has to offer (in addition to this DVD). I really enjoyed seeing Leslie demonstrate some of the exercises and I am looking forward to watching the accompanying DVD set of Game Demonstrations.
