Control Unleashed

Training Class Spotlight:

Does your dog fixate on squirrels, become distracted when they see people or other dogs, or simply have a hard time focusing when outside? Then Control Unleashed is for YOU!  In this 6 week class your dog will learn to focus in the face of distractions, and you’ll learn how to guide them toward better choices. Winter in Colorado is best enjoyed outside -- wouldn’t it be more fun with a focused friend beside you?

1 session: Saturday, November 29 at 2:00 p.m.
