Control Unleashed: A Foundation Seminar
Leslie McDevitt

This 4-disc DVD set contains portions of a two-day foundation seminar conducted by Leslie McDevitt. In these DVDs you will watch as Leslie works with dogs trained in dog sports that are uncomfortable or unable to work off lead around other dogs, easily distracted, easily aroused, stressed, shut down, or unable to control their impulses.

Leslie McDevitt's unique training program is designed to teach dogs and puppies how to relax, focus, and work off leash in stimulating and typically stressful situations. Using this program you will be able to train your dogs and puppies how to use their energy for focusing on you and the task at hand, instead of being distracted by what is going on around them.

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

In 1998, Leslie rescued Gordie, an American Pit Bull Terrier/German Shepherd Dog cross who had been badly abused. In trying to help him through his crushing anxieties and fears, she met renowned veterinary behaviorist Dr. Karen Overall. Through working with Gordie, Leslie found her calling, and devoted herself completely to becoming a dog trainer and later, a behavior consultant. Leslie was volunteering at urban shelters and studying behavior and clicker training when she caught the dog sports bug and started agility and flyball training with her terrier mix Maggie. Her work with anxious, reactive, impulsive and aggressive dogs gave her a unique perspective when she became a student of dog sports training. Leslie served in many capacities, including President and Obedience Training Director, at Y2K9s Dog Sports Club in Wyndmoor, Pennsylvania.
