The Control Unleashed® program was created by renowned dog trainer Leslie McDevitt to help dogs learn how to better manage their stress, gain confidence and improve their impulse control and ability to focus around triggers and distractions. Pup 'N Iron Canine Enrichment Center is pleased to be one of the first training facilities in  Virginia to offer this exclusive and innovative program. 

Who is it for: 

  • Dogs that are uncomfortable or unable to work 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


In this 8 week program, which includes an orientation without your dog, followed by 7 weeks of group classes, your dog will not only gain confidence being around other dogs, but more importantly you will gain more confidence in your skills to manage these once stressful situations and develop better communication and a more trusting relationship with your dog. You will learn to read your dog and communicate on a higher level. 

*Note: This is not a class for aggressive dogs that have a bite history that pose a potential danger to other dogs or people. If your dog has this history, please contact me about one on one private training.*
