Genuine Dog Whispering. We guarantee our results. Sitdropstay Dog Training offers you the most effective and respectful dog training available in the Gold Coast, and, as a mobile service we can ensure all problems are dealt with successfully at their source. We have revolutionised dog behaviour and dog training into a natural, simple and easy to understand philosophy that dramatically improves both results and training time.
Sitdropstay was created with a mission to take dog training and behaviour beyond the disempowering overuse of treats, excessive force or medication, and their associated problems, to a more respectful, effective and natural approach which understands and utilizes the interconnection of mind, energy and spirit between all of life.
Most modern approaches, while not short of theories, have limited effectiveness as they do not understand or recognize our emotional energy and inner power, and its effect on our dog’s behaviour and mind. Nor do they understand why dogs respect and willingly co-operate with some people and not others, or the importance of leadership and boundaries for the well-being of a dog’s mind. This limits them to relying on treats and clickers, (or even medication) to modify or create behaviour, usually focusing on symptoms rather than the root cause.
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.
Our Dog Whispering or natural dog training “empowers you” to have influence over your dog at all times using a humane and respectful approach.
Your local dog trainers are Sitdropstay Head Trainer and Director George Lygidakis and Emma Tucker. George and Emma have years of experience in dog training and dog behaviour and would love to help you achieve a happy, and balanced pack. They believe that understanding your relationship with your dog and how your behaviour influences and changes them is the most effective approach to creating a stable, happy and co-operative dog.
We cannot thank you enough for your help with our two 5 month old Malamutes last Friday, the difference in them and to our lives is amazing. Before your visit we were so desperate we seriously considered giving one of them away because together they were out of control; they snapped & snarled, jumped and barked constantly, to the point that we were becoming frightened they would bite us. With the invaluable knowledge you have given us they are transforming into calm, obedient and most importantly, likable dogs. We not only owe you our unreserved thanks but also our “first born” as you have achieved in one visit what we thought was going to be impossible, you have truly changed our lives.

Emma you came to visit me and Toohey and I just want to thank you. I am actually enjoying my walks and playtime with Toohey. Toohey had already been sent to boot camp but the tactics used to achieve this training I believe were built on brut force, so the trainer and my partner could manage her but I could not. Honestly, after only 2 hours with you I could relate to all you advised and demonstrated and found it so much easier to put into practice. Your training methods far out way those previously taught to me at boot camp. I just seemed to click to all you conveyed and it all works for me. I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, I love my dog Toohey so it’s great to be able to come home now and look forward to our playtime and walks together. My partner asked me “was the training worth the money I paid” and I said whole heartedly “Yes” every cent and I would recommend your training services to anyone. MARG HENNINGS – NERANG QLD
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
