Sitdropstay was created by Director and Head Trainer, George Lygidakis in response to an urgent need to improve the quality of training and knowledge of dog behaviour that is available to the Australian public. Alarmed at the amount of badly behaved dogs and the poor advice given by many trainers, behaviourists and vets, George has created a system that is simple, yet brings amazing results, while using a humane and holistic approach. We believe this quality and depth of knowledge has never been available to the Australian public before.
George has been a Dog Trainer for over 25 years. A former Australian Protective Service (Federal Police) Police dog handler and trainer, he has since turned his attention to dog psychology, and dog behaviour, embarking on an extensive study of all dog training methods available in the world today. He has studied the worlds most successful dog trainers, animal trainers, psychologists, dog whisperers and behaviourists, as well as human psychology and interspecies communication, to discover the keys to successful dog training and behaviour modification, and synergising them into the groundwork and philosophy of the Sitdropstay training system.
We have entered a new and exciting era, where we don’t just teach dogs obedience exercises and tricks, but truly understand their minds and needs, and start to communicate and interact with them in a way they understand. While food, balls, toys, clickers, chokers, halties, prong and electric collars are all being used successfully around the world to focus on dog obedience and training, this does not calm or stabilize a dogs mind. George’s journey has led him to realize that it is our relationship with our dog, how we communicate with them, and our own emotional energy that are the most important issues to having a happy, calm and co-operative dog. 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, plus the latest and most advanced dog training methods, that is the focus of Sitdropstay’s training system and the reason we are achieving the results we are.
Sitdropstay approaches and selects only the most suitable and qualified people in each city to represent them and all trainers are personally trained and coached by George. We currently offer our service in Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, Northern Rivers N.S.W., Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Cairns.
