Brisbane’s In-home Dog Training

Our dog training specialists in Brisbane can help you get the dog you’ve always wanted using training methods proven over 25 years.

At Sit Drop Stay, we use a simple and natural approach that both empowers you and is respectful to your dog, teaching you how body language and subtle changes in the way you approach your dog can enhance your communication and the way your dog responds to you. You will be able to notice the difference after just one session with one of our expert dog obedience trainers, with results that leave most owners amazed at the co-operation and willingness their dog shows.

Brisbane’s best dog training

We understand that it’s the relationship we have with our dogs that is the foundation of achieving willing co-operation. As owners, we need a way of connecting with their hearts and minds. The way we communicate, behave, our belief systems and emotional energy all determine our success in creating consistently happy, calm and co-operative dogs. Being centred and in touch with our own inner power gives us the ability to influence our dogs at a deeper and more profound level than simply teaching a dog’s mind ‘tricks’.

It is this understanding, coupled with the latest and most advanced dog training methods, that is the focus of Sit Drop Stay’s unique dog obedience training system, and the reason we are achieving the best results.

How we work

We believe in-home dog training is the most effective and easiest way to establish a solid foundation of training and create the dog you want, giving faster results, with sessions that are tailored especially to your individual needs.

  • We focus on creating a calm and co-operative dog.
  • We believe the state of mind your dog is in when it receives a reward is more important than their physical action.
  • We use the language your dog understands.
  • We teach you how loving leadership and connection can change your dog’s behaviour and result in a more successful relationship.

We believe our one-on-one personalised training gives superior results compared to group classes, which is why we offer this exclusively. Whilst group classes offer fun and stimulation to your dog, they are not designed or able to address behavioural issues or to educate and empower you as the owner.

Step 1.

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.

Step 2.

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.

Step 3.

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.

Lifetime guarantee

After a 3rd consult you’ll get unlimited call outs as well as phone and email support for anything we have covered in your consultations – that’s how sure we are that we can solve any issue big or small, with any dog.

Our trainers

Emma-Cairns-dog-trainer.jpgYour Sit Drop Stay trainer in Brisbane is Emma Tucker.

Emma 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.

Ann and I were expecting a dog behavioural session from you with our puppy Brewster this weekend. That is not what we got. What we got was a deep insight into our own behaviour and projections and how this influences Brewster’s responses. You actually refocussed us, giving us the necessary confidence and authority to set clear boundaries with him. No more worrying about whether we were being too soft or too hard on him. We now know what it takes and will pursue this with deliberate practice. Invaluable …… many thanks. Paul and Ann – Brisbane


I would like to let you know how happy we are for having called George from SitDropStay to help us with our 2yr old Dachshund Jazz who had a nasty experience at a local dog park, which left her with aggressive behaviour and excessive barking. From the moment that George arrived he exuded a calmness and compassion and a real love for dogs. He also created a relationship of control with our dog within seconds of being with her. Something I had trouble achieving. He then proceeded to take us on a walk past the dogs in our neighbourhood that drove our dog crazy! within 20 minutes we were calmly walking past these houses with very little response from Jazz. George has made such a huge difference that other people that we see when walking have noticed and commented, in fact, three have asked for his details they were so impressed. I now love walking and taking my dog out and she is continuing to be well behaved. Thank you so much I feel Australia has its own “Dog Whisperer” and his name is George! Peggy – Brisbane


I cannot believe the change in Deakin in just those two hours! He has perfected going up and down the stairs by “waiting” until I allow him! U certainly have left that invisible fence in the kitchen, he obeys me now and doesn’t cross that magical line! Dinner time was amazing….. Normally he would be under my feet while I am getting his food ready but tonight he sat back in lounge room watching, I then walked into laundry put his bowl on the floor and calmly walked back to lounge room and said “come” in a calm but authoritative voice and he didn’t run but calmly walked Into laundry where I allowed him to go to his bowl!!!!! Normally he would be under my feet, jumping his way into laundry and scoffing!! It was all very orderly!!! Can’t wait to take him for his walk in morning!! Thank u so much Emma, u were amazing and it has certainly already rubbed off. I am much calmer too!!!! 🙂 Julie Castles – Brisbane
