Control Unleashed Pattern Games for a more Confident and Focused Nosework Canine Partner.
Using Control Unleashed Pattern Games developed by Leslie McDevitt, you and your dog will learn tools to help your dog become more confident and focused in Nosework trials and in class. This program is suitable for dogs of all temperaments but is especially useful for dogs that have environmental sensitivities or dogs that have big feelings about other dogs or people. Pattern Games help dogs acclimate to new environments. Helps with waiting in staging areas, walking between searches and helps with the dog’s transition to work from waiting. Control Unleashed Pattern Games create a confident and focused mindset for successful searches in class or at a trial.
This will be a series of three two hour workshops during August, September, and October. Different Pattern Games will be presented at the first two workshops. In addition to a new game, the third workshop will include practice of the Pattern Games in set up scenarios for the dogs and handlers. Though attendance in both of the first two workshops is ideal, attendance of one of the first two workshops is mandatory for participating in the third workshop.
