Meet George – Adelaide – Byron Bay
Australia’s leading Dog Whisperer
Sit Drop Stay Director and Head Trainer, George Lygidakis has been training and rehabilitating dogs for over 25 years. A former police dog handler and trainer, he then focused his attention on dog psychology and behaviour, as well as human and dog relationships, interspecies communication and the art of dog whispering.
Alarmed at the epidemic of badly behaved, anxious and over stimulated dogs, and the limited advice and misinformation given by most trainers, behaviourists and veterinarians, George wanted to create a system that was simple, holistic and natural.
This journey led him to realise that it is our relationship and our own behaviour with our dog that is the foundation of achieving willing co-operation. This understanding, coupled with the latest and most advanced dog training methods, is the focus of Sit Drop Stay’s unique training system – one that delivers amazing results for all dogs, regardless of age or breed, that are consistently effective.
Its time to go beyond the limitations of both “positive only” and “dominance based” philosophies. Sit Drop Stay offers a more respectful and effective approach to co-existing and interacting with your dog and changing their behaviour.

Our Success Stories
“We are considered by many to be leaders in the field of dog training but on several occasions with both work and home dogs I have used George’s services because his general knowledge of animal behaviour far outstrips ours.”
Military Police Dog Handler
“Sitdropstay has changed our lives. It was amazing to watch within the space of minutes our usually boisterous, unruly dogs doing anything George told them. After the 2 hour consult we had dogs who wanted to listen to us. It was truly an enlightening experience.”
Kate and Marr Waldron-Moir
“We have been completely blown away by George and his ability to teach us the rules to living in a harmonious and balanced pack environment. We have learnt so much in such a short time that we would never have believed it if we hadn’t seen it for ourselves. Once we began to trust ourselves and use the techniques George provided for us, it was amazing to see the immediate change in Bosko. It was as if a light switch went off and he could relax knowing we had it all under control.”
