Getting Started

Getting started in your dog training journey can sometimes feel over whelming with all the options and information out there. Here are some great suggestions to get started with your dog training here at Noco Unleashed!

Leslie McDevitt's versatile Control  Unleashed program is designed to help "dogs with issues" learn how to relax, focus, and work off leash reliably in either stimulating or stressful situations.

"I love this place. They are teaching me how to get the behavior i need from my pup. The atmosphere is relaxed and patient, a good counterbalance to all that puppy energy."
