I Feel Like I've Tried Everything. Why is SitDropStay Different?

While many dog trainers and obedience schools focus on teaching mechanical actions and tricks by using treats and toys, we find this rarely gives owners control in real life situations. Your dog can be clever and educated but still ignore you. It also isn’t fair to expect a dog to listen to you if you haven’t learned to lead them effectively and don’t have their trust and respect. We understand that it is our relationship with our dogs and our own behaviour and energy or emotional state around them that is the foundation of achieving a deeper connection and willing co-operation.

Australia’s Leading Dog Whisperer

Meet George


SitDropStay Director and Head Trainer, George Lygidakis has been training and rehabilitating dogs for over 30 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 often questionable advice and misinformation given by most trainers, behaviourists and veterinarians, George wanted to create a system that was simple, holistic, natural and intuitive.

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 SitDropStay’s unique training system – one that delivers amazing results for all dogs, regardless of age or breed, that are consistently effective.

It’s time to go beyond the limitations of both ‘positive only’ and ‘dominance based’ philosophies. SitDropStay offers a more respectful and effective approach to co-existing and interacting with your dog and changing their behaviour.

    “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.”
