“Awaken Your Inner Dog Whisperer” Retreat

Come along with your best friend for 4 days of training, rejuvenation and transformation in beautiful Byron Bay!



Run by SitDropStay Head Trainer George Lygidakis, this unique workshop/retreat has been specifically designed to help you to understand, connect, communicate and be able to influence your dog at a deeper level, creating a more enjoyable and fulfilling experience for both of you.

Awaken Your Inner Dog Whisperer

Within each of us is the ability to communicate, connect and interact with our dogs in a more natural and effective way. This communication comes from our inner being, or a place of stillness. A place beyond thought and mind and the need for concepts or theories. It is an intuitive inner knowing and expression that comes from within. A dog whisperer communicates with dogs from this place.

Discover what is inhibiting you from expressing what you want to create with power and direct communication. Identify and heal any emotions or beliefs that are getting in the way of your communication clearly and authentically.

By getting in touch with this part of ourselves around our dogs we can not only connect with our true selves, but also heal any inhibitions or emotional blocks we have developed which stops us expressing our true power and ability to direct chi energy or prana. Our dogs understand this form of energetic communication because it is how they communicate with each other.

This workshop is for everyone who wants to enjoy and improve their relationship with their dog, and is looking for more than just the concept of ‘training’ their dog. Whether you have lost your confidence, feel frustrated, dis-empowered or disillusioned by current mainstream approaches and feel there must be a better way, or simply love the idea of having a wonderful holiday with your best friend, let us educate and empower you to get where you want to be.

You will learn 

  • How to be someone your dog wants to follow off-leash and willingly co-operate with.
  • How to keep your dog calm in all situations.
  • To easily switch your dogs state of mind from active to passive.
  • What your dog means to you and what role you take on around them.
  • A more natural, effective and respectful way to coexist with your dog.
  • How to share affection and reward with connection rather than treats or toys and why your dog craves this.
  • How to use your intent and energy in a calm but powerful way to influence their behaviour.
  • How to expand, retract and project your energy field when communicating with your dog.
  • Hands on training and practical lifestyle techniques you can take home for the real world to use immediately.

We will be hosted by the fantastic Byron Holiday Park, which is of course dog friendly
