Dog Behaviour And Dog Training Brisbane
SitDropStay dog training and behavioural specialists use solid, proven methods combining dog psychology and dog whispering , based on over 30 years of experience. Whether your are after general dog training, owner education, or need help with behavioural issues, we can help you. Our goal is to coach and support you to create a relationship with your dog that is based on mutual trust, respect and willing co-operation.
Create The Dog You Have Always Wanted
Our Brisbane dog training experts will help you to create a well behaved and happy dog who is a joy to live with and take out and about. We will coach you, not just your dog – and arm you with the lifelong skills you need to effectively communicate and interact with them in your daily lifestyle. Dogs have a different heirarchy of needs to us and it is vital for owners to learn how they perceive the world. We need to know what they need from us and their enviroment to find peace. Once you understand how to make the necessary (often subtle) changes to your relationship, behaviour, energy and communication you can then shape your dog’s behaviour and the resulting experience.
Why We Get Better Results
We offer a holistic, dog whisperer based approach to training that looks at the whole picture and the root cause of your dogs behaviour and training issues. This includes the overall dynamic, existing family members and relationships, identifying sources of stress, current exercise, enrichment, emotional states, their history, other pets, and other details that may be relevant such as home and yard set up. We believe for eg, that understanding how to influence your dog’s state of mind is far more important than teaching mechanical actions like sit or drop. There is absolutely no point having a dog that can do a heap of tricks if they are still anxious, worried, jealous or lacking self control. Your dog’s emotional state and your ability to lead and control the environment effectively must come first if training is then going to be of value. Both is needed of course, but one without the other or done in the wrong order is usually a waste of time and often even counter productive.
Our Trainers Come To You
We offer a one-on-one service exclusively (no group classes) so we are able to tailor all coaching to your specific situation and lifestyle. We have found through years of experience and client feedback that teaching you and your dog how to cope with and behave in real life situations and your ordinary daily environment, such as in and around your home/suburb/park will achieve faster and better results. It allow us to see what is actually going on, what triggers your dog in your daily life and what we need to change to get you both from where you are now to where you want to be.
Our Brisbane Dog Behaviour and Training Specialist
Brett Males has been surrounded by animals all his life, and was particularly drawn to dogs early on. He always felt that there was much more to the human-canine connection than what just what lay on the surface. Believing there to be a deep underlying energetic connection between our two species he felt it was possible to gain a much deeper and more fulfilling relationship with them than what was often perceived.
After a chance meeting with Sit Drop Stay founder George Lygidakis, he felt deep resonance with George’s philosophies. The spiritual and energetic connection between humans and dogs rang very true and he quickly decided to train with him as a dog behaviour specialist.
Brett is very proud to be part of the Sit Drop Stay family and looks forward to helping you in the your search for a more natural, balanced and rewarding relationship with your dog.
“If you are struggling with a badly behaved pooch let me pass some of my knowledge and understanding on to you so you too can enjoy a more fulfilling and rewarding relationship with your dog.”
I would like you to pass on to Brett a very big THANK YOU to him for saving our sanity after he had spent two hours with me, John and our dog Jamie on Saturday. I could not believe the difference Brett made towards Jamie’s attitude and how we know have a different dog – a much calmer more relaxed dog. Brett was so patient and explained everything in such a way that was easy to understand and retain and able to be put into practice immediately. WHAT BLISS!!!! It was money well worth spent!!! Jenny Burchill – Brisbane
Brett in Brisbane was actually incredible!! I had 5 trainers before SitDropStay for my German Shepherd and Kelpie and nothing had changed. Within the first 20 min of Brett being at my home I could already see changes in my girls. He gave me all the tools I needed to have a harmonious and peaceful relationship with my doggos. Its been 4 days, there has been no barking, no disobedience and no stressful dog walks full of pulling and problems with other dogs. He is a life saver and Im so glad to have my chilled out home again. Makayla Rodriguez – Brisbane
“Fantastic. Our 7 month old Blue Heeler X was a rescue girl with what we suspect is an abusive past. She was extremely shy of humans to the point she would run backwards and forwards down the back of the garden like a wild dog and wouldn’t come near when a stranger came over. Along comes Brett and he spent a couple of hours with us. He explained everything in a way that was logical and made perfect sense. We implemented his suggestions and our girl is doing so well, we’ve had so many comments about what a difference they’ve seen since Brett started working with her. Dog training and fixing problems isn’t that hard when it’s explained by someone who truly knows what they are talking about and also cares about the dogs. We’d recommend Brett to anyone without any hesitation.” Kerry Loschiaco – Belgrave

Our Dog Training Behaviour Process
We start out with an introductory phone consultation with our Brisbane-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.
Characteristics & outcomes of our dog training Brisbane
The ultimate goal of our dog training Brisbane is to produce a calmer and more cooperative dog. To achieve this, we use the language your dog will understand, and offer rewards based on state of mind opposed to simply a physical action.
Our experienced trainers will teach you how loving loving leadership and connection can change your dog’s behaviour. And as a result, how you can cultivate a more successful, mutually respectful relationship.
Although labelled as one-on-one classes, you are free to involve your family members. This will help us to identify how your dog reacts differently to varying personalities and tones.
Through utilising the most advanced dog training methods, Sit Drop Stay is continuously achieving unbelievable results for our clients. Whether you want to learn in your home or local park, or via Skype in your lounge room, our trainers will tailor a session that is perfect for you.
