Home and private dog training Adelaide

SitDropStay Dog Training Adelaide offers a simple, natural and holistic approach that will have a profound effect on both you and your dog. Our dog behaviour, dog training and puppy training consultants will help you to create both a calm, well-mannered dog and a more rewarding relationship with them. One that is based on loving leadership, connection and natural and respectful communication. We will empower you to create the relationship and behaviour you expect from your dog.


Our training and coaching advice is based on your lifestyle and specific needs.

No more wasting your precious time and money going to irrelevant group classes or using training methods that don’t work. Most modern training methods currently either disempower you or are irrelevant to your lifestyle and specific needs. Unfortunately, this often leads to people either giving up and settling for a poorly behaved dog or unnecessarily putting dogs on medication. Whether you require help with anxiety, relationships, aggression, reactivity to dogs or humans, pulling, off leash, barking or jumping, our dog trainers have solutions for you that really work. 

Your Sitdropstay Dog Training Adelaide specialists

Your local dog trainers are George Lygidakis and Emma Tucker. Both have established themselves as experts in their field through years of experience. Combining a keen interest in psychology and a deep affinity and love for dogs, both are highly proficient in a wide range of dog behaviour modification and dog training methods. They have consistently and successfully dealt with and resolved all sorts of behaviour issues across all ages and breeds of dogs. Working as a team, they will find the best solutions for you and your beloved dog based on your individual needs, lifestyle and situation. Their goal is to empower and educate you to create the relationship and behaviour that you want from your dog so you can enjoy each other as much as possible.

We offer our services throughout the Adelaide metropolitan area including Glenelg, Semaphore, Henley Beach, Brighton, Burnside, West Beach, Seacliff and Norwood. Northern Adelaide including Gawler and Two Wells. Southern Adelaide including Aldinga and Port Noarlunga. The Adelaide Hills including Mt Barker, Bridgewater, Stirling and Aldgate, and the whole of the Barossa Valley.

Why in-home or private training?

At SitDropStay Dog Training Adelaide, we believe that 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 – our clients are amazed at how quickly their dogs change their behaviour compared to other forms of  dog training being offered
  • Lifestyle based dog training –  no more unnecessary training that you will never use in the real world
  • Practice in real life situations not just in the class
  • Sessions are tailored to you – we develop the right formula for your individual lifestyle
  • 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 your home and local environment gives superior results. It is your day to day contact and personal rituals that teach your dog what is expected of them. Group classes are a great way to enrich or add to this foundation by offering additional stimulation through exercises and tricks – however, they are not designed or able to address behavioural problems. These problems are usually caused by either relationship issues or instincts and drives inherent in the dog. Training them to perform actions for a transaction does not address these issues, nor does it give you enough control of their instincts.

How We Work

A free introductory phone consultation where we find out about your personal needs, explain how we can help you and which of our packages will suit you best.

One of our experienced SitDropStay Dog Training Adelaide dog behaviour training specialists will arrange to come out to your home, or other place that you choose. Here we will conduct a two hour personalised one on one consult with you. This consult will be tailored to your individual needs and focused on addressing any behaviour you are not happy with. We will empower you to create the dog you have always wanted.

We then offer one hour follow-up consultations to see how you and your dog are progressing and to provide more advanced training as required. You can go as far as you like and at your own pace, and consults can be in any environment you prefer.

She believes in helping owners and dogs connect and understand each other and that dogs have as much to teach us, if we will listen, allowing us to be more aware of ourselves and reflecting our beliefs, energy, attitudes and emotions back to us. During consultations she focuses on giving dog owners the tools and skills required to be the very best guardians they can be.
