Canberra’s In-home Dog Training

Our dog training specialists in Canberra use training methods that give you better and faster results. We help you create the behaviour and relationship with your dog that you’ve always wanted,

At SitDropStay, 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 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.

About Sit Drop Stay Dog Training in Canberra

Establishing important concepts like trust, respect, self control, self responsibility, problem solving and an understanding of boundaries, rules and consequences are vital if we want our dogs to develop into balanced, likeable members of society. We give your dog a solid foundation and teach life skills first.

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.

Sit Drop Stay Dog Training offers services in Canberra and surrounding areas including Queanbeyan, Sutton, Bungendore and Jerrabomberra.

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 Canberra 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.

Our trainers

Your Sit Drop Stay trainer in Canberra is Allie MacDonald.

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.
