I can’t thank you enough for the transformational work you’ve done with my Cooper in helping him accept our new kitten. Your breadth and depth of understanding of canine behaviour is most impressive. In addition, your understanding of human behaviour makes what you offer so cutting edge. Above all, your professionalism and open nature makes you a leader of leaders in your industry. I was surprised how much I learned about myself through our session. I realized I was meeting my needs through Cooper, which disempowered both of us, even though it felt good and right. Only when I understood Coopers model of the world, could I meet his needs. I now believe our dog’s behaviour is a mirror reflection of our own conscious/unconscious thoughts. I will now lead with the highest of intentions through love.
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.
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. The changes were amazing, immediate and lasting. We now have a much greater understanding of our dogs behaviour and they are far calmer and happier. As dog parents this was the best thing we have ever done for our dogs and ourselves. We cannot recommend George and Sitdropstay highly enough. Thank you George.
Having been interested in the field of Dog, Cat and Bird behaviour for many years, I have seen and tried many different methods of dealing with behaviour problems and approaches to training. George came to our practice this year to help train our staff deal with our patients and clients more effectively. We were all both impressed and inspired by Georges calm, straightforward and elegantly simple approach to understanding dog behaviour. Georges insightful approach to dog behaviour has really helped us manage our patients and provide our clients with much better information about relating to their pets.
I have trained with many Dog Trainers from around Australia and Overseas and can say without a shadow of doubt that George is the best in his field I have seen.

Hi Emma, you guys are truly very generous, really care and make an actual difference and I didn’t want to let that go unsaid. I’m sure you realise, but I wanted to reiterate just how much of a difference you guys make – words can’t really articulate. We were unprepared when we adopted Benny and Dash, two rescue puppies. We started to struggle with behavioural issues, when a friend recommended SitDropStay. I’m pleased to say that we are on top of the behavioural issues and our dogs are friends, and our best mates. It’s a relief not to be worrying about the dogs when we aren’t home. Emma gave us the information and confidence we needed to tackle the hard issues, but isn’t judgemental or condescending. Thanks Emma for helping our pack!
I just had to make contact with you to thank you so much for changing our lives. I consider myself reformed and have become the pack leader. Max and Abbie now play together UNBELIEVABLE. All in all I think it was probably the most productive two hours of my life. Tim cannot believe the outcome.
Having known and worked closely with George in this industry I would rate him amongst a handful of people who truly understand canine behaviour and more importantly, know how to apply this knowledge positively and humanely.

George absolutely changed our family life for the better. We now have a perfectly behaved dog and a happy family again. Thank you, thank you George you are amazing.
My vet refers to you as the Dog Whisperer and I definitely agree. Have dealt with other dog trainers before, but you are by far the best. We found you to be professional, friendly and definitely caring about our dogs.
We just wanted to say thanks to Caroline for all her help with our 2 dogs, Daisy and Beau. I didn’t think I would ever be able to walk them confidently on my own, but after 2 hours with Caroline my brain has been rewired and I haven’t stopped walking the dogs. Each day their behaviour improves and I feel like an absolute show off walking such well mannered large dogs! I can’t stop telling people about SitDropStay, please send me some flyers to hand out.
We are so blessed to have such talent and an incredible business right here on our doorstep. Shout out and BIG thank you to the AMAZING Brett Males (Dog Whisperer). I cannot believe what he did in such a short time with my dog. He is incredible! Cesar Milan move over
“George, you came and spent 2 hours with my much loved doggies and you left me with 2 of the best behaved, relaxed, happy doggies. I was concerned that after you left they would revert to their forever behaviour but I was very wrong. I now walk with 2 very relaxed and happy dogs at my side rather than pulling me along like a sled, and little Lucy had a wonderful play time with dogs she’s never met without the anxiety that previously came from 2 terrible dog attacks. I’m forever grateful for all that you taught the 3 of us and will continue to recommend you to EVERYONE that loves their best friends enough to do the very BEST for them. You are a true and genuine “Dog Whisperer”. I cannot thank you enough.
We have been completely blown away by George and his ability to teach us and Bosko 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 him it was as if a light switch went off and he could relax knowing we had it all under control. We will be forever grateful to George for providing not only us with the necessary training but our very balanced and happy Bosko.
I would like you to pass on to Brett a very big THANK YOU to him for saving our sanity after he had spent two hours with me, John and our dog Jamie on Saturday. I could not believe the difference Brett made towards Jamie’s attitude and how we know have a different dog – a much calmer more relaxed dog. Brett was so patient and explained everything in such a way that was easy to understand and retain and able to be put into practice immediately. – WHAT BLISS!!!!
All I can say is WHAT A REVELATION, you have effectively saved Basil our dog from being put to death.
Thanks for coming out to see Poppy and me. Its been phenomenal. Poppy seems so much happier. On Wednesday I took Poppy for an hour walk off leash. The whole hour Poppy walked behind me. She ignored other dogs, runners, workman everything. I feel extremely confident with her now and she hasn’t run towards anyone or even looked as if she will. She no longer runs or pulls towards other dogs. She doesn’t mouth me anymore and the jumping is greatly reduced if not stopped. I am totally gob-smacked that the issue I was battling with for months took literally 5 mins to sort and is so easy to maintain. It feels great to have a dog that responds so well and that is the envy of the town! I am afraid I wont be needing another session! Again many thanks for showing me the way.
I am writing to thank you for your time and patience yesterday. My young male is already a different dog, and has not jumped on anyone since you left. Today was a very calm day- only one bark at the fence. I took them both out today and they were a delight to walk. I have already recommended you to several friends and will not hesitate to sing your praises to anyone who will listen. Thanks again for your calm, logical and sensible approach to my dogs.
I just want to thank you for the time you spent training Gypsy (and me). I think you must have hypnotized her, she was a really nice dog before, but is now a perfect dog. I cant believe how quickly we have both learned from you. I am truly impressed by your expertise.
Hi there Emma, I’m delighted to report that Ebony & I are getting along famously! Ebony is calm, relaxed and going through her paces like an absolute trooper. She is loving all the different instructions and showing me what a fabulous follower she is as I step up my canine leadership skills. My neighbor came over for a visit just after you left & could hardly believe the change in Ebony’s behaviour. Thank you so much for your highly professional and compassionate approach.
I wanted to say thank you so much, our dogs, especially Audrey is just absolutely fantastic now. Like everyone else has written on your site, she is just like a completely different dog. What’s even better is that she is truly a much happier and more relaxed dog, and that has made it so so worthwhile. Right this moment she is laying on our back deck, i have the back doors open and she is not even trying to come inside, let alone scratch the door! What a pleasure. Everyone that sees her now can hardly believe the change, and from people who meet her now all I hear from them is “What a beautiful dog”.
LOUISE KRAWS = ADELAIDE
Amazing results thank you Emma!!! I cannot believe the change in Deakin in just those two hours today! He has perfected going up and down the stairs by “waiting” until I allow him! U certainly have left that “electric” fence in the kitchen, he obeys me now and doesn’t cross that magical line! Dinner time was amazing….. Normally he would be under my feet while I am getting his food ready but tonight he sat back in lounge room watching, I then walked into laundry put his bowl on the floor and calmly walked back to lounge room and said “come” in a calm but authoritative voice and he didn’t run but calmly walked Into laundry where I allowed him to go to his bowl!!!!! Normally he would be under my feet, jumping his way into laundry and scoffing!! It was all very orderly!!! Can’t wait to take him for his walk in morning!! Thank u so much Emma, u were amazing and it has certainly already rubbed off. I am much calmer too!!!!
I just wanted to thank you very much for helping me with my 2 dogs.you gave me alot of inspiration and we are all working hard to make this work. I am very grateful and it has even made me take a look at my own life. It is much appreciated and has made things alot easier. I took both dogs for a walk today and I felt a lot more confident with both of them. I was telling myself to relax and it worked.
Emma you came to visit me and Toohey and I just want to thank you. I am actually enjoying my walks and playtime with Toohey. Toohey had already been sent to boot camp but the tactics used to achieve this training I believe were built on brut force, so the trainer and my partner could manage her but I could not. I began to believe I was never going to have control but then I found Sitdropstay. Honestly, after only 2 hours with you I could relate to all you advised and demonstrated and found it so much easier to put into practice. Your training methods far out way those previously taught to me at boot camp. I just seemed to click to all you conveyed and it all works for me. I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, I love my dog Toohey so it’s great to be able to come home now and look forward to our playtime and walks together. My partner asked me “was the training worth the money I paid” and I said whole heartedly “Yes” every cent and I would recommend your training services to anyone.
I’m delighted to report that after your consultation our fence jumping problem appears to be cured. It’s really quite amazing. Really can’t thank you enough for your advice. She seems a lot happier and secure than she was as well. Great result – thanks very much for your very sensible and effective advice. It was money well spent.
Hi Emma, I would just like to say thank you again. After one day the difference in Sam’s behaviour is remarkable. He responded instantly – I would never have believed it possible and imagine that he will feel much more comfortable very soon. Looking forward to giving your name to my friends.
Hi George! It’s only been one week since you’ve been here and I have only three words for you…. I LOVE YOU!!!! Can you guess how Bella is doing and David and I as well? Thanks so much for spending the extra time with us. You are amazing!!! PS I just wrote to Ceasar Millan about how wonderful you are!
I had seven dog trainers to choose from. I trusted my gut feeling and you delivered everything I was hoping for.
Very impressive. I was hoping id be impressed
I had Emma come out to help me with my terrier x on Friday. She was really fantastic. I walked the dog after the session and she responded extremely well. It’s been 2 days since I met Emma and I see a lot of changes in Ruby. Excellent knowledge and understanding of canine drive and behaviour. Thank you very much Emma.
I just wanted to keep you updated regarding your visit on Saturday. Deablo has barked half a dozen times since Saturday and each time we have followed your instructions and he has responded well. I am yet to speak to our neighbors but know they would be so much happier with the peace and quiet! You really truly did save a 12 year old boy from being traumatized over the loss of his (mate) pet & have given all of us the opportunity to love our dog all over again!! So thank you!! All in all the change in Deablo and us humans is amazing. He seems so much more relaxed & I am confident, thanks to your amazing insight that things will remain calm & under control.WITH HUGE AMOUNTS OF THANKS.
We had problems with our two dogs and the previous dog trainer’s solution was to re home the younger dog. Thankfully we found George. George worked wonders with our dogs. We now have two very happy well behaved dogs and two very happy dog owners.
Was thinking last night to drop you a line and let you know how everything has been going, so far – brilliant! Bear & Gia have both been displaying manners inside the house most of the time, there have been a few lapses (but after running wild so long, everyone is bound to slip up & forget) – but they haven’t gone without immediate correction. Walking Bear is now a breeze, the ideals have also worked on the boyfriend… you were right! Overall it has become a relaxed, calm & enjoyable household to be in again.
You recently trained my dog Bison (the Bulldog), and well i guess me and Rogan as well. I just wanted to thank you so much for your training and advice. We saw such a wonderful change in him and can’t thank you enough! I can actually take him for a normal walk now and he’s obeying our commands. Which means I’m not getting in trouble off Rogan!
Thank you so much for coming out and seeing Reiph on Saturday. Rich and I learnt so much from your visit, particularly about ‘leadership’. We are still marveling at how well behaved Reiph has been since your time with us. Reiph has become this chilled out, happy, obedient puppy. He is a pleasure to have around again!!
I would like to thank Emma for her visit to us. There has been a huge change in our Kendra already in such a short time. It is the best money I have ever spent. Thank you.
We just wanted to say thank you for your honesty and integrity. It is so refreshing to meet someone such as yourself.
I wanted to write to thank you for your help with our Staffy, April. She is a different dog since your visit, and we often regard, that it was the best money we’ve spent. She is now a pleasure to walk, trotting at the heel placidly, and has illustrated several times, that she is no longer aggressive to other dogs. The day after your visit, we were in the park, practicing out sit, drop, stay exercises, and a large free Labrador came bounding up ready to play! April was on the lead, which would usually have eventuated in a scuffle with bared teeth and hackles up! But instead, she looked to me for direction! AMAZING difference. Since that time, we have come across many other dogs on their walks, and we’ve had no problems what so ever. She is a changed and very relaxed dog! So thank you for your help, and advice. Thanks to you, we are really enjoying our pet.
Its great. People are amazed. We’d recommend Sitdropstay to anyone.
Absolutely miraculous! Our 1 year old was impossible. Embarrassing even to walk her, among other issues. Other forms of training didn’t work. Then we contacted George. In 2 hours he taught her to listen and showed us how to take back control.
THANK YOU GEORGE.
Hi Emma I just wanted to email you my thanks for the help. It hasn’t even been 3 weeks but already Fred and Chuck are happier, more obedient and we have a better relationship because I am not resenting bad behaviour, I’m stopping it before it happens, everyone has commented that they are both much calmer when they come to visit and we have had almost no toileting accidents YAY So thank you!!!!!!!!!
We are over the moon. They’re like two different dogs. Its amazing what a couple of hours can do.
I have just returned from a walk on the main road with Amani and he was an absolute pleasure to walk. He didn’t pull, or try to chase the hubcaps of cars. He is now happily asleep on his bed. It was a pleasure to meet you George and be able to chat about alternative therapies. I’m always amazed at the synchronicity of meeting people. Thank you for empowering me to be a leader and reminding me to be present and live in the now like he does.
Hi. Just wanted to thank you for all your help with my cattle x kelpie dog Molly. In the two weeks since you’ve been we have seen a drastic improvement in her behaviour. She is a different dog!! We took her out in public which was usually a huge challenge and she was as good as gold. She never used to respond when we called her at the dog park and now she runs to our side. She now waits to be invited inside and waits at the gate before being invited into the car. She is a joy to be with. Thanks again. You’ve made our home so much more peaceful. I’m amazed at the difference.
I just want to say a huge thank you to George and Emma for coming and helping us with our malamute Bella. It was amazing to see her respond so quickly to the techniques and have her walk beside us without pulling! She is a wonderful dog who is now a pleasure to walk. Thank you very much for your assistance, professionalism and effectiveness! It was money very well spent and will be referring your services to all of our friends and family who may need assistance with their dog.
We can never find the words to express our gratitude to SitDropStay. Caroyln was incredibly calm and knowledgeable. Our “unfriendly” dogs took to her almost immediately and within two hours we had calm, well behaved dogs. What I enjoyed most was the natural approach and the fact that we can still love and play with our dogs. There were no harsh consequences or corrections, just body language and human training. We are more than impressed and would recommend SitDropStay to anyone.
I had Carolyn come out to my home about 6 weeks ago with my extremely naughty dog. Within minutes she was literally a different dog and is improving daily. Thanks SitDropStay, you’ve changed our lives!
Hi George Thank you for your time last Friday. I thought I would let you know that my dogs are now adjusting to their new dominant leader – me. I have employed your suggestion of taking the dogs around the back to unwind before they come into the house and that also seems to be working. And in the last week could not find any new sprays from Zac. I have sung your praises to many of my friends.
Hi George, What a stress free home it is now!!!! Not a sound when I am at the bench in the kitchen, no more jumping, barking stops immediately, Max is perfect on a walk and Poppy is trying really hard. Thank you so much, what a difference when the human is trained correctly.
I can’t thank you enough for helping me with my strong willed Willow. Being half Poodle/Pomeranian she was so active/excited. She lead me in circles. Now I am the boss and life have become peaceful with my beautiful little pooch. Thank you so much George.
I would like to thank you for your help with our dog Izzy. She is now learning to listen and behave. Your training was fantastic and has made life a lot easier for us.
Good to talk to you this morning and to be able to give you such a positive report about our 2 dogs. Beso is really so much more relaxed. Many thanks to you and your methods.
Just thought that I would let you know that Lilly and I are getting on much better and she is being good 99% of the time. She has stopped jumping on the kids and Kane(4 year old) is walking her on her lead with Jacko (the older mutt) and I. Thanks so much for returning my sanity and helping me to calm Lilly.
George, I would like to say how impressed we were with you. We had 4 very spoilt, unruly dogs and they are all well on their way to being happy well behaved pets. Thank you so much.
Thank you for your help with Ginga. I was amazed by her sudden acquired walking skills. In only one week we have seen such a drastic change in her behaviour. I no longer feel like I am dislocating my arm every time I walk her.
George, Thank you for the most informative and up front call this morning regarding our Jack Russells. Its not often in these money hungry days that people will volunteer so much and be honest enough to say that they may not be able to cure the problem. Full marks. As a result we will be recommending you to other dog owners – the best word of mouth marketing. Thank you,
It was great to see such a wonderful improvement in Jets behaviour in such a short time. I can now take him for walks confident he’ll behave around other dogs.
We thought our dogs were untrainable. Within an hour they were walking down the street unrestrained and totally under control, ignoring dogs they normally would have gone crazy at.
Hello George, We are all going well. Susie is just a delight. Thank you again so much for taking us back to the basics. Susie walks well on the lead now and the backyard issues are sorted out too. When we go out she loves going into her cave (crate). So all up everyone is happy.
Thanks once again for all your help with Stormy and Thunder. Everyone is amazed at the difference you have been able to make to them and to me thanks once again.
I thought I would write and give you an update and thank you for the behavioural progress of our staffys Titan and Jedda. I still am amazed at times at the changes in them within the house, even my friends have commented on the difference in Titan. It is funny to think that he is now better behaved than Jedda. My husband and I now own the house and they just live in it and it is a great feeling. We no longer have to physically move them to the bed, one word and they go to their bed. We can sit on our couch together without being overrun by dogs. Thank you again.
Hi George You came out to our dog Seamus the other week. Things are going very well and I’m sure he is a much happier dog. The difference is amazing!
We would like to thank Carolyn for her visit to us. We have seen a big change in Harvey, our Mini foxie, in such a short time. Carolyn was able to explain Harvey’s social aggression and show us how to correct his behaviour, the results were almost instant and Harvey is a much calmer and happier dog, as is his owners!
Hi Emma, I have already seen a marked improvement in Taxi’s whinging, particularly in the car! I was gobsmacked yesterday morning when we went out and I only got one small whinge out of her. I almost got out the car and jumped around with excitement as I could actually her the radio instead of her whinging!
Just wanted to let you know some feed back from a friend of ours who saw you on Sunday in Queanbeyan. We were talking to Rick and Jen yesterday and he said you came out and by coincidence it happened to be you. Martin is one of our last pups. They mentioned how happy they where and how all of what you told them makes sense!! And where amazed with the results.Just thought you’d like to know.
Hi George I would just like to say thanks once more for teaching me to teach the pup. Bro will be way safer now that I know how to make him stay by me and not run off. I would also like to let you know that I really appreciate the fast follow up after I left an inquiry.
Thank you so much. Ruby is a transformed dog and so much happier. We had read about the ideas but couldn’t put it into practice. It is amazing how fast the change has been.
Hi George, It has been a little over a fortnight since you visited Tristen and I for some help with our beloved Boxer, Carlos. After you walked out the door that day, Carlos was clearly in shock. He did not move from his bed for close to an hour! Since the two weeks have passed we have made sure that we are consistent with Carlos and patient. He now waits to be invited in the house and when instructed to go to his bed he does (and he stays there until we tell him he can move!). We have instructed friends when coming over not to make eye contact or acknowledge Carlos until he they are inside and he is on his bed and calm. They were completely amazed in the difference in him in just a few weeks. I wanted to thank you again for your patience with Carlos and with us. We now realise that we were sending mixed signals to Carlos making him think that he was the king of the castle! The knowledge that you have on forwarded to us has resulted in balance and calm being restored to our house. I can’t thank you enough for passing on this information you have. What a great gift you have with Dogs!
Dear George, You may remember that, just after Easter, you came to help me with Darcy the boxer who was getting ready to travel to Manchester. I just wanted to let you know that, as a result of your advice and training methods, Darcy has become calm, learned to go in a crate without barking or getting distressed, has successfully made the 32 hour trip from Canberra to Manchester and, yesterday, arrived in great shape. He also now walks without pulling, so we are looking forward to good times exploring the countryside. Thank you for your help and good advice regarding training him. Meg
We had Brett Males over with our dog Chanel who is 5yrs old and acted like a mad happy puppy. Now I’ve got this loving calm dog who listens to me better than the kids lol… Thank you soooo much Brett, we’re all enjoying her company… We recommend Brett and his magic with all dogs, coz I really thought she was beyond any help.
Hi Brett, I have to say thank you, I am totally astounded by the change in Jasper – you are a miracle worker.
“Fantastic. Our 7 month old Blue Heeler X was a rescue girl with what we suspect is an abusive past. She was extremely shy of humans to the point she would run backwards and forwards down the back of the garden like a wild dog and wouldn't come near when a stranger came over. Along comes Brett and he spent a couple of hours with us. He explained everything in a way that was logical and made perfect sense. We implemented his suggestions and our girl is doing so well, we've had so many comments about what a difference they've seen since Brett started working with her. Dog training and fixing problems isn't that hard when it's explained by someone who truly knows what they are talking about and also cares about the dogs. We'd recommend Brett to anyone without any hesitation.”
