Why A Dog Whisperer?

It is time to go beyond the limitations and consequences of both positive only and dominance based philosophies. SitDropStay offers a more respectful and effective approach to co-existing and interacting with dogs and changing their behaviour. We focus on both your own behaviour and relationship with them, and on communicating in a way that is recognised and responded to immediately by any dog. Dogs communicate with body language and more importantly, presence and the direction and focus of mind/energy . This form of communication is more effective and respectful than training them to perform unnatural actions by bribing them with treats or using force. Your dog references you by the energetic- emotional signature you emit and will react to you according to who you are being and your intent in any given moment. For us the state of mind your dog is in when rewarded is more important than the physical action. For example, we would use the "sit" command to calm a dog or change its mind state. It is not a command to "pause" what you were doing, put your bum down to get a treat, and then to return to what you were doing. We want to create a calm and relaxed dog. It is YOUR energy or presence that allows your dog to stay calm and relaxed. If your dog perceives you as weak, you will need treats, force or medication. We help many dogs every week who are highly “trained” but are still anxious, hyperactive, aggressive, dominant, unstable or shut down. While using treats and toys can teach dogs to respond to a command with a mechanical action, it does not consider a dogs mind, spirit or energy and will often create and active, demanding and anxious dog . This is commonly seen now with the many dogs that appear to have A.D.H.D. Regrettably they are often medicated rather than helped. Loving leadership, connection and rewarding with warm feelings are far more effective ways to change a dogs behaviour than merely training them with treats, force or medicating them.  Discover the magic of Australia's leading Dog Whisperer, George Lygidakis and his team of Dog Trainers.
