Welcome to Sit Drop Stay Dog Training in Adelaide

Adelaide In-home Dog Training

Sit Drop Stay Adelaide offers in-home consultations with our dog behaviour specialists that will help you to have a more rewarding relationship with your dog, based on true leadership and trust rather than treats or punishments.

We teach you how to communicate with a simple and natural approach that both empowers you and is respectful to your dog, creating a calm, stable state of mind. You will be amazed at how quickly your dog will connect with you and be willing to do what you ask after just one session with a Sit Drop Stay dog behaviour specialist.

Adelaide’s leading dog trainers

We believe that dogs need a balance of positive reinforcement and discipline to be stable and fulfilled and to be able to develop into happy and balanced members of society. Boundaries, limitation and saying “no” is just as important as praise and reward – and each has its place and correct application. Punishment, violence, fear and intimidation have no place in building healthy relationships. We can show you how to give your dog the right balance to foster trust and respect and help you achieve the status of loving leader.

Why in-home training?

We believe in private, lifestyle based dog training is the most effective and easiest way to establish a solid foundation of training and create the dog you want.

  • Faster results – 1 to 3 sessions are usually all we need.
  • Practice in real life situations not just in the class.
  • Sessions are tailored to you – we develop the right formula for your individual situation.
  • You are coached and educated not just your dog.
  • The whole family can be involved.

We have consistently found one-on-one personalised training in the home environment gives superior results compared to group classes, which is why we offer this exclusively. It is your day to day contact and personal rituals that teach your dog what is expected of them. Whilst group classes are a great way to enrich or add to this foundation by offering additional stimulation through exercises and tricks, they are not designed or able to address behavioural issues or to educate and empower you as the owner.

How we work

After an introductory phone consultation, one of our experienced Adelaide based dog trainers will arrange to come out to your home, or other place that you choose, to conduct a personalised one on one session with you and your dog.

This initial two hour session will be tailored to your individual needs and the issues you are experiencing with your dog. Every family and dog is different so we work to find the right “formula” for your situation. It’s important for your trainer to find out about your lifestyle, the personalities in your family, the temperament of your dog and the behaviour you want your dog to have.

We will then come back for 1-2 follow-up consultations (if required) to see how you are and your dog are getting on, addressing any areas that you may be struggling with and ensuring that you have all the tools you need to develop a well-balanced relationship with your dog.

We’re so sure that we can help whatever the problem and whatever the dog that we offer a lifetime guarantee, including unlimited call outs, together with phone and email support for anything we have covered in your consultations.


  • Step 1: Phone consultation to find out your individual needs.
  • Step 2: Initial two hour personalised session at your home.
  • Step 3: A further 1-2 follow-up consultations as required.
  • Step 4: Lifetime guarantee.
