About SitDropStay Dog Training Canberra

Sitdropstay Dog Training Canberra is privileged to have Allie MacDonald as our specialist dog trainer. Allie was welcomed to our Sitdropstay team in 2016. Since then she has successfully helped hundreds of dogs and their owners reach their training and relationship goals. Allie is an experienced and passionate dog behaviour training expert and is available to come to you for professional in-home and private dog training, 7 days a week. Whether you require dog training, puppy training or help with dog behaviour problems, Allie will help you achieve your goals and help you create the dog you expect. 

Do you want a calm, happy and well behaved dog? By helping you establish important concepts like trust, respect, self control, self responsibility, problem solving and an understanding of boundaries, rules and consequences, your dog will develop into a well balanced and likeable member of society.

We specialise in both lifestyle based dog training and modifing and fixing any behaviour problems. Whether it’s barking, jumping, pulling, anxiety, hyperactivity or any other issue, we can help you.

Here are some important points of difference between what we offer and what most other training organisations offer.

  • We focus on creating a calm and co-operative dog
  • Rather that focusing on using treats we empower you to to use your voice, body language and energy to naturaly manage and direct your dog
  • The state of mind your dog is in when it receives a reward is more important to us than their physical action
  • We do not train in “drive” or “high energy” as this is conterproductive for a family dog
  • Our training is personalised and based on your dogs specific needs and temperament
  • No unnecessary training that you will never use in your day to day life
  • We use the language your dog understands
  • Leadership and connection are emphasised as a powerful tool can change your dog’s behaviour and result in a more successful relationship.

How We Work

We start out with an introductory phone consultation with our SDS Dog Training Canberra trainer, who will ask you some preliminary questions to find out what your individual needs are.

Our specialist will come out to your home, or other place of your choosing. Your initial two hour one on one session with you and your dog will be 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 just right 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.

Allie has been so incredibly helpful for our dog! She was able to work out the problem quickly and provided us with a wealth of information and tips to help us help our dog. We really appreciated that she has followed up to see how we are going and if we need any more help. She’s been a great investment for our little family.-   Mady Zabar – Reviewed SDS Dog Training Canberra

Thank you so much, what a transformation for my little sausage, Rodney! He is so much more relaxed and the household is extremely calm, for once. Made a massive difference when dealing with some urgent family matters. I have mentioned you to a few of my friends. Thank you!   Sal R – reviewed SDS Dog Training Canberra

From the moment I went out to observe my first job I knew animal behaviour consulting was what I wanted to do and that I wanted to be trained by and work with the team at Sitdropstay. It is very rewarding to facilitate a deeper relationship between owners and their dogs.
