Un-Chase!® Training

Because canine scholars don't chase!
Bicycles, cats and chickens, oh my! If your dog chases things they shouldn’t, our Un-Chase!® training programs can help.
Whether your dog be well versed in chasing the local wildlife, or you have a young puppy who hasn’t picked up the chase habit yet, our Puppy Un-Chase!® Course, Un-Chase!® Workshop, or private Un-Chase!® training is an invaluable investment for you.

Providing solutions for dogs who chase:

Things with wheels like cars, bicycles, and skateboards
Family pets like cats, bunnies, and birds
Household items like vacuum cleaners, blowers and brooms
Livestock animals like chickens, horses, sheep, and goats
Neighbourhood animals like cats, possums, and birds
Wildlife like kangaroos, wallabies, and koalas

How Un-Chase!® Works

Our Un-Chase!® programs teach dogs self-control in the face of exciting chase opportunities.

Your dog will learn to self-regulate by choosing alternative behaviours to chasing. Imagine, for example, your dog coming to you or settling into a drop-stay when they see a chicken. (Yes, it really is possible!)

By providing safe, controlled opportunities for you and your dog to practice in the presence of real-life chase triggers, your dog can learn real-life self-control; and you can enjoy real-life confidence and peace of mind.

Why do dogs chase?

Well for one thing it's just good fun. At least for your dog. Not so much for you or any animals being chased, of course.

It's also hard-wired. Once upon a time dogs couldn't rely on kind humans for their meals - they had to catch their sustenance. Though dogs have been domesticated for some time now, most dogs retain the instinct to chase. For some, a well-thrown ball is enough to scratch the itch. For others, it's hard to ignore the call of a fleeing bunny or chicken. And some dogs feel compelled to chase anything that moves - even inanimate objects like your vacuum cleaner.
