Sitdropstay was created by Director and Head Trainer, George Lygidakis in response to an urgent need to improve the quality of dog training and knowledge of canine behaviour, that is available to the Australian public. We feel too many dogs are discarded, destroyed, locked away or lead a poor quality of life due to a lack of understanding, misinformation, misdiagnosis and poor training. Dogs are often turned away from obedience clubs because they don’t fit into their particular training system and are classed untrainable. Also many dogs are currently great at doing “tricks” for treats at obedience clubs but are unmanageable and unstable at home or in public. We are amazed at the number of families and relationships that are under unnecessary stress and tension due to their lack of understanding of canine behaviour and dog training. In the majority of cases one or two consultations is all that is required to address the problem.
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 canine psychology, behaviour and obedience, embarking on an extensive study of all dog training methods available in the world today. He has studied the worlds most successful dog trainers, psychologists, dog whisperers and behaviourists, as well as human psychology, interspecies communication, universal law, shamanism, energetic healing and psychic communication to discover the keys to successful dog training and behaviour modification and synergising them into the groundwork and philosophy of Sitdropstay’s dog training system.
We have entered a new and exciting era in dog training and behaviour where we don’t just teach dogs obedience exercises, 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 for obedience and performance, they do not calm or stabilize the dogs mind. George’s journey has led him to realize that the relationship between human and dog, and understanding our own behaviour and emotions and how they are interpreted by our dog, are the most important issues in correcting dog behaviour and dog obedience problems. Dogs that don’t trust their humans as good pack leaders become unbalanced and unsure, try to control their environment, and start to exhibit undesirable behaviour. Our dogs often reflect back to us our unresolved emotions so understanding your own unconscious beliefs, needs, fears and limitations will empower you and give you the ability to understand and have influence over your dog at a deeper and more profound level than just training your dog.
It is this, plus the latest and most advanced obedience training methods, that is the focus of Sitdropstay’s dog training system and the reason we are achieving the results we are. We have created a dog training system that is simple, yet brings amazing results, while using a humane and holistic approach. We believe this quality of dog training and knowledge has never been available to the Australian public before.
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 dog training in Adelaide, Canberra, Northern Rivers N.S.W., Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Cairns.
