Hi everyone, my name is Emma and I am the SitDropStay Dog Training Canberra specialist. It’s a privilege to have a career with dogs and help so many people become empowered and understand their dogs on a deeper level.
I started my journey 12 years ago when a little black and white border collie pup came into my life. He showed what was possible in a human-dog relationship (good and bad!) and I realised I wanted to help other people experience this too.
It was a few years before I was able to turn my obsession into a fulltime profession, and when I was finally ready I did my research - I wanted to learn from the best! I spoke to many trainers but George immediately stood out as his philosophy was based on dog whispering and dog psychology, and although he understood and used advanced training techniques, he also deeply understood and was aware of the emotional and energetic connection that is the foundation of human-dog communication. By putting these both together he was able to achieve consistently amazing results. In my training, we worked with many clients and dogs that had tried many other trainers and techniques with little or no results, and within hours they were different dogs! It was owners who needed educating, the dogs understood George almost instantly. The simplicity was actually very confronting! The other thing I loved about George’s methods was that he treated each dog and family on a completely individual basis – there was no “one-size fits all” mentality. I had been a nanny for several years earlier and recognised that, like children, each dog is unique. What works for one does not necessarily work for another. A good trainer must be able to recognise what the situation needs and adjust.
I have also followed and practised natural horsemanship for many years, and working with horses has helped me enormously in understanding the importance of putting the relationship first. Until you have genuine trust and respect, “training” has little relevance and can only be relied on in certain or limited situations. Both disciplines encourage and teach that WE are largely responsible for what we create (in our dogs) and that by looking inwards and working on our own behaviours and beliefs, we are able to influence, impress, and become worthy of following.
I have been part of SitDropStay Dog Training Canberra for 4 years now and am so happy to say that we can help you turn around almost any problem in any dog. I would love to show you how to get the behaviour you want from your dog and create a communication system and relationship based on trust and respect so your dog is happy to listen! It doesn’t have to be complicated and confusing. Our team really does have the ability to get you the best results in the shortest possible time.

My vet refers to you as the Dog Whisperer and I definitely agree. Have dealt with other dog trainers before, but you are by far the best. We found you to be professional, friendly and definitely caring about our dogs. ROSE MARIMON – CANBERRA – SDS Dog Training Canberra
I just want to say a huge thank you to George and Emma for coming and helping us with our malamute Bella. It was amazing to see her respond so quickly to the techniques and have her walk beside us without pulling! She is a wonderful dog who is now a pleasure to walk. Thank you very much for your assistance, professionalism and effectiveness! It was money very well spent and will be referring your services to all of our friends and family who may need assistance with their dog. KIM, JOSH & BELLA – CANBERRA ACT – SDS Dog Training Canberra
Hi Emma, I would just like to say thank you again. After one day the difference in Sam’s behaviour is remarkable. He responded instantly – I would never have believed it possible and imagine that he will feel much more comfortable very soon. Looking forward to giving your name to my friends.
