Brisbane’s most advanced and effective Dog Training and Behaviour Modification. Create a calm, well-behaved dog within 2 consults. We come to you and solve all dog training, puppy training and behaviour problems easily and quickly.
Why do we get the results we do? 1) We focus on who you are being and what you are feeling at any time with your dog (the energy you are projecting), not what you or your dog is “doing”. Your dog reflects back to you who you are being with them in any situation. They are your mirror. If this is not addressed just training your dog is often a waste of time 2) We have a deep understanding of Dog Psychology and Dog Behaviour. Our philosophy is based on the way dogs naturally communicate with each other, making it instantly understood, and creating an instinctive willingness to cooperate.
We are constantly amused at clients astonishment when we change a dogs behaviour in such a short time, when they have tried for months or years, following the advice of trainers who have told them to either be harder on the dog, or that they should not say no to their dog, just ignore bad behaviour and reward good behaviour. This is very disempowering, and based on flawed human theory not the wisdom of nature.
Sitdropstay offers a natural and more enlightened dog training approach that is both respectful and amazingly effective. It is possible for you to have a deeper connection with your dog where you can communicate naturally through body language, energy, voice, eye contact, touch and thought. We will empower you to have control of your dog and create the behaviour you expect from them, in all situations.
Whilst ‘positive only’ and treat based training is well meaning, it has limited effectiveness as it is science/intellect based and does not acknowledge or even understand the deeper and more fulfilling communication that is possible between human and dog through inner presence, thought and emotion , or the effect our emotional energy and inner power has on our dog’s behaviour and mind. Until as dog trainers and behaviourists we connect to our inner wisdom and start to truly understand the interconnection and interplay of consciousness, mind and energy between dogs and humans, we are limited to using treats, clickers, toys, medication or fear to teach and shape their minds, usually focusing on symptoms rather than the root cause. This limits our ability to influence behaviour and create the deep connection we are longing for with our dogs while training.
It is sad and frustrating we are seeing so many unstable and badly behaved dogs. So often clients have wasted a lot of money and, more importantly, time and energy, persevering with questionable or ineffective dog training approaches, and even more disturbingly medication, when one or two consults with us has rectified the problem.
Your Brisbane dog trainers are Sitdropstay Head Trainer and Director George Lygidakis and Emma Tucker . George and Emma both have years of experience in dog training and dog behaviour and would love to help you achieve a happy, calm and co-operative pack. They believe that understanding your relationship with your dog and how your own behaviour influences them is the most effective approach to creating a stable, happy and co-operative dog.
Most dogs will only require one or two consults for training or behaviour problems. For maximum results we suggest an initial two hour consult and then a follow up two to four weeks later to polish things up. We will not charge you again if an unwanted behaviour persists after a second lesson.
Hello George. All I can say is WHAT A REVELATION, you have effectively saved Basil our dog from being put to death. – GARY AND TINA LOW, BRISBANE
Sitdropstay has changed our lives. It was amazing to watch within the space of minutes our usually boisterous, unruly dogs doing anything George told them. After the 2 hour consult we had dogs who wanted to listen to us. It was truly an enlightening experience. The changes were amazing, immediate and lasting. We now have a much greater understanding of our dogs behaviour and they are far calmer and happier. As dog parents this was the best thing we have ever done for our dogs and ourselves. We cannot recommend George and Sitdropstay highly enough. Thank you George. KATE AND MATT WALDRON-MOIR BRISBANE
Its been phenomenal. Poppy seems so much happier. On Wednesday I took Poppy for an hour walk off leash. The whole hour Poppy walked behind me. She ignored other dogs, runners, workman everything. I feel extremely confident with her now and she hasn’t run towards anyone or even looked as if she will. She no longer runs or pulls towards other dogs. She doesn’t mouth me anymore and the jumping is greatly reduced if not stopped. I am totally gobsmacked that the issue I was battling with for months took literally 5 mins to sort and is so easy to maintain. It feels great to have a dog that responds so well and that is the envy of the town! I am afraid I wont be needing another session! Again many thanks for showing me the way.

We are considered by many to be leaders in the field of dog training but on several occasions with both work and home dogs I have used George’s services because his general knowledge of animal behaviour far outstrips ours. MILITARY POLICE DOG HANDLER, RAAF
