Northern Rivers most advanced and effective Dog and Behaviour Training. 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) 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 shouldn’t say no to their dog, just ignore bad behaviour and reward good behaviour. This is very disempowering and based on flawed human theory and 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 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 our dogs 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 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.
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 we have worked with persists after a second lesson.
I can’t thank you enough for the transformational work you’ve done with my dog Cooper in helping him accept our new kitten. Your breadth and depth of understanding of dogs is most impressive. In addition, your understanding of human behaviour makes what you offer so cutting edge. Above all, your professionalism and open nature makes you a leader of leaders in your industry. I was surprised how much I learned about myself through our session. I realized I was meeting my needs through Cooper. which disempowered both of us, even though it felt good and right. Only when I understood Coopers model of the world, could I meet his needs. I now believe our dog’s behaviour is a mirror reflection of our own conscious/unconscious thoughts. I will now lead with the highest of intentions through love. PRISCILLA BOKHARA – PERSONAL GROWTH SPECIALIST
We have been completely blown away by George and his ability to teach us the rules to living in a harmonious and balanced pack environment. We have learnt so much in such a short time that we would never have believed it if we hadn’t seen it for ourselves. Once we began to trust ourselves and use the techniques George provided for us, it was amazing to see the immediate change in Bosko. It was as if a light switch went off and he could relax knowing we had it all under control. We will be forever grateful to George for providing not only us with the necessary training but our very balanced and happy Bosko. SYLVIA & JUSTIN TRAEGER – ADELAIDE
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
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
