Private dog training by Sit Drop Stay

Sit Drop Stay exclusively offer one-on-one private dog training sessions for our clients. Our approach is designed around the principles of emotional connection, communication and body language techniques. While most owners rely on commands to achieve a physical reaction, we delve much deeper than that. We teach you that leadership and the energy that you project on to your dog is absolutely essential to success.

Whether you have just brought home a new puppy, have fallen for a rescue dog, or you’re looking to teach your old dog new behaviours, we will tailor a session that is perfectly designed around your desired outcomes.

Like people, all dogs are different. So, it is unfair for us to expect them to all learn in the same way. Our private dog training ensures they get the attention and personalised level of teaching they deserve.

Private dog training with a difference

Training techniques nowadays are often counterproductive when it comes to achieving a calmer and more stable dog. Teaching a dog ‘tricks’ through reward and overexcited praise will leave you with an erratic and demanding dog. While there is a time for play, what they ultimately need is consistent, stable, and loving energy from their leader.

As expert dog trainers and whispers, we will teach you what it takes to establish true leadership. Your own lifestyle and approach to communication will shape your dog’s key behaviours. So, instead of trying to change them, we leverage off of them. There is no sense in devising a training plan that is completely different to your normal routine.

We encourage our clients to complete their private dog training sessions in their home, or another familiar environment. This will make the continuity of teaching and learning for owner and dog much more sustainable.

With trainers based in Adelaide, Queensland, Canberra, New South Wales and Melbourne, Sit Drop Stay have the experience and methods you need to cultivate a healthier relationship between you and your dog. Fill out the online enquiry form, or call 1300 306 887 today!

Benefits of private dog training

While our private dog training exists to change behaviours in dogs, it’s just as educational for owners. Our approach will work to empower you both, while ensuring mutual respect is upheld. Group puppy training or dog obedience classes offer a fantastic opportunity for our fur-babies to socialise. However, with so much excitement and distraction, it is not an environment suitable for learning skills and specific behaviours. Some key benefits of our private dog training include:
  • Rapid results – thanks to the controlled environment, engagement levels are at an all-time high
  • Sessions tailored to you – so we can tackle your specific needs without the distraction of other class members
  • Long-term results – completing the training in an environment that you and your dog are familiar with will make continual practice much easier
  • Whole family involvement – so you can all learn, while we observe how the dog responds to different people


Our Dog Training Behaviour Process

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.

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.
