In-home, and private Dog Training Adelaide

SitDropStay Dog Behaviour and Training Adelaide offers real world solutions that are surprisingly effective and simple to implement into your lifestyle. Our dog behaviour and training specialists will help you to have both a well-mannered dog and a more rewarding relationship with them. One that is based on leadership, connection and natural and respectful communication. 

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

An more empowering and effective approach to Dog Behaviour and Dog Training

We will teach you how to communicate and interact with your dog using a simple, more effective and natural approach. No treats, clickers or medication. Our natural and respectful approach is both empowering and more effective than other approaches. This leads to a deeper connection between you and a calmer and happier dog. You will be amazed at how quickly your dog will willingly co-operate with you when you understand how they see the world and what they need from you.

Your local Adelaide dog training and behaviour specialists.

Your local trainers George and Emma have established themselves as experts in their field through years of experience combined with 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.

Why in-home or private training?

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 training being offered.
  • Lifestyle based 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 the home and your local environment gives superior results compared to group classes. It is your day to day contact and personal rituals that teach your dog what is expected of them. Whilst group classes are a great way to enrich or add to this foundation by offering additional stimulation through exercises and tricks, they are not designed or able to address behavioural issues or to educate and empower you as the owner.

How we work

After an introductory phone consultation, one of our experienced Adelaide based dog behaviour specialists will arrange to come out to your home, or other place that you choose, to conduct a personalised one on one consult  with you and your dog.

This two hour consult will be tailored to your individual needs and focussed on addressing any behaviour you are not happy with. We will empower you to create the dog you have always wanted.

We then offer 1 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.

Our trainers

In Adelaide we have George Lygidakis and Emma Tucker.

George Lygidakis

George has been training dogs for over 25 years with enormous success. This is down to the unique dog whispering methods he has developed, that continue to both evolve and have incredible success with dogs of all ages and breeds. As a dog whisperer, George understands that it is the your energy or presence that allows your dog to stay calm, relaxed and co-operative, removing the need for treats, force or medication.

Emma Tucker.

Emma-Cairns-dog-trainer.jpgEmma has been obsessed with animals for as long as she can remember, discovering that she had a natural affinity and understanding of them from an early age. 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.
