Dog Training Near Me

Searching for ‘dog training near me’? Well, you can’t get any better than Sit Drop Stay Dog Behaviour & Training. Not only are we near you – we come to you! With experienced trainers and whisperers based in Adelaide, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Melbourne, Central Coast NSW and Canberra, your dog will learn from the best in the business, in its own familiar environment.

Sit Drop Stay’s Director and Head Trainer, George Lygidakis, is based in Adelaide and Byron Bay. He is a former police dog handler, and has over 25 years’ experience in training and rehabilitating dogs. In this time, he very quickly learnt the importance of connecting with dogs on a psychological level to change behaviours. Badly behaved, disobedient and overstimulated dogs are all too common. With the help of his team, George has taken Australia by storm with Sit Drop Stay Dog Behaviour & Training.

What You Can Expect

After typing ‘dog training near me’ into Google, you probably want to know what makes Sit Drop Stay so special! Well, that’s easy. Our approach is completely unique and holistic. With a focus on creating a calm and cooperative dog, we rely on training through engaging their state of mind. We use a language and techniques that your dog will understand.

Additionally, we don’t believe in rewarding purely based on a physical action. This merely teaches them to respond to a command, without considering their energy. Our tried and tested techniques will educate you and your dog, through teaching how loving leadership and connection can change your dog’s behaviour, and result in a more successful relationship.

It’s time to go beyond the limitations of ‘positive only’ and ‘dominance based’ philosophies. Let us show you how to interact with your dog in a way they will truly understand and respect.

Our Dog Training Behaviour Process

Step 1.
We start out with an introductory phone consultation with our Melbourne-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.

The Benefits of Private Training

Sit Drop Stay exclusively offer private training sessions, and as mentioned, our trainers come to you! While group puppy or dog classes offer fantastic social stimulation, it is not an environment fit for learning. With so many distractions, it is unfair to expect your dog to remain focussed and attentive.

Our private classes can take place in your home, or in an environment that your dog is familiar with. This will not only enhance their level of attention, but will also make your new teaching methods much easier to maintain and integrate beyond the length of the session.

Higher attention levels also mean that less sessions will be required to evoke a long-term behavioural change. Three is generally the maximum we will need. However, should you need further assistance, we can easily provide it over the phone, with unlimited support offered.

Sit Drop Stay are reinventing the dog training wheel. Let us help you establish a deeper and more meaningful connection with your dog.
