Dog Obedience Training Melbourne by Sit Drop Stay
Our team of dog whisperers are here to deliver dog obedience training Melbourne like no other. Through reading energy, body language and emotions, our team focus on training through communication, coupled with proven modern teaching techniques.
Where most owners and trainers rely on the use of bribe (treats) and punishment, this merely achieves a mechanical response. It does not work to change the way the dog thinks and feels about a certain behaviour. This is ultimately how our approach differs. No person is the same, nor is any dog, so it is crucial that we allow them the time and respect that they need to successfully learn.
Our dog obedience training Melbourne classes are exclusively one-on-one. While group dog and puppy classes allow for invaluable social interactions, they are not suitable for learning new skills or addressing specific behavioural concerns.
Why mindset is key in our dog obedience training Melbourne
Dogs learn best in environments that they are most familiar with, such as their home or local park. This provides less distraction during the session, and a high level of continuity to ensure our efforts are not lost. We will arm you with the skills and knowledge to be able to confidently continue teaching your dog to instil a long-term behaviour change.
Like with most things in life, it is crucial to practice, practice, practice! Through tuning in to your dog’s emotions and mindset, they will become noticeably more engaged and willing to learn. For example, when a human is visibly overwhelmed or angry, telling them to ‘calm down’ is likely going to achieve the opposite response. The same rules apply for dogs. Being able to recognise how they are feeling at a particular time will be vital to your training success.

Our Dog Training Behaviour Process
We start out with an introductory phone consultation with our Melbourne-based dog trainers, who will ask you some preliminary questions to find out what your individual needs are.
Our trainer will come out to your home, or other place of your choosing, to conduct an initial one on one session with you and your dog that is tailored to your specific needs. Taking into consideration your current lifestyle, who else is in the family, your dog’s temperament and the outcome that you want to achieve they will put together a formula that’s right just for you.
If further consultations are required we will come back and address any continuing issues and ensure that you have all the tools you need for a rewarding relationship with your dog based on loving leadership and true connection.
Added benefits of one-on-one dog obedience training Melbourne
As previously mentioned, group dog & puppy classes certainly do have a place when it comes to teaching socialisation skills. However, the overstimulating environment makes it impossible to achieve behavioural changes, or retain their attention for more than a second.
Benefits of at home or private dog obedience training Melbourne include:
- Faster results achieved – with generally only between 1 and 3 sessions required
- Tailored classes – to ensure your specific issues are addressed
- Lifetime skills and information – for you as the owner to continue on with training
- Easy integration with your dog’s life & environment – making continuing with training much easier for you and them
- Fun for the whole family – everyone is encouraged to get involved so you are all on the same page
Sit Drop Stay offer dog obedience training throughout all areas of Melbourne, including the Mornington Peninsula and Geelong.
