Having known and worked closely with George in this industry I would rate him amongst a handful of people who truly understand canine behaviour and more importantly, know how to apply this knowledge positively and humanely.
George absolutely changed our family life for the better. We now have a perfectly behaved dog and a happy family again. Thank you, thank you George you are amazing.
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.
We just wanted to say thanks to Caroline for all her help with our 2 dogs, Daisy and Beau. I didn’t think I would ever be able to walk them confidently on my own, but after 2 hours with Caroline my brain has been rewired and I haven’t stopped walking the dogs. Each day their behaviour improves and I feel like an absolute show off walking such well mannered large dogs! I can’t stop telling people about SitDropStay, please send me some flyers to hand out.
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.
We have been completely blown away by George and his ability to teach us and Bosko 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 him 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.
I would like you to pass on to Brett a very big THANK YOU to him for saving our sanity after he had spent two hours with me, John and our dog Jamie on Saturday. I could not believe the difference Brett made towards Jamie’s attitude and how we know have a different dog – a much calmer more relaxed dog. Brett was so patient and explained everything in such a way that was easy to understand and retain and able to be put into practice immediately. – WHAT BLISS!!!!
Thanks for coming out to see Poppy and me. 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.
I am writing to thank you for your time and patience yesterday. My young male is already a different dog, and has not jumped on anyone since you left. Today was a very calm day- only one bark at the fence. I took them both out today and they were a delight to walk. I have already recommended you to several friends and will not hesitate to sing your praises to anyone who will listen. Thanks again for your calm, logical and sensible approach to my dogs.
I just want to thank you for the time you spent training Gypsy (and me). I think you must have hypnotized her, she was a really nice dog before, but is now a perfect dog. I cant believe how quickly we have both learned from you. I am truly impressed by your expertise.
Hi there Emma, I’m delighted to report that Ebony & I are getting along famously! Ebony is calm, relaxed and going through her paces like an absolute trooper. She is loving all the different instructions and showing me what a fabulous follower she is as I step up my canine leadership skills. My neighbor came over for a visit just after you left & could hardly believe the change in Ebony’s behaviour. Thank you so much for your highly professional and compassionate approach.
I wanted to say thank you so much, our dogs, especially Audrey is just absolutely fantastic now. Like everyone else has written on your site, she is just like a completely different dog. What’s even better is that she is truly a much happier and more relaxed dog, and that has made it so so worthwhile. Right this moment she is laying on our back deck, i have the back doors open and she is not even trying to come inside, let alone scratch the door! What a pleasure. Everyone that sees her now can hardly believe the change, and from people who meet her now all I hear from them is “What a beautiful dog”.
Amazing results thank you Emma!!! I cannot believe the change in Deakin in just those two hours today! He has perfected going up and down the stairs by “waiting” until I allow him! U certainly have left that “electric” fence in the kitchen, he obeys me now and doesn’t cross that magical line! Dinner time was amazing….. Normally he would be under my feet while I am getting his food ready but tonight he sat back in lounge room watching, I then walked into laundry put his bowl on the floor and calmly walked back to lounge room and said “come” in a calm but authoritative voice and he didn’t run but calmly walked Into laundry where I allowed him to go to his bowl!!!!! Normally he would be under my feet, jumping his way into laundry and scoffing!! It was all very orderly!!! Can’t wait to take him for his walk in morning!! Thank u so much Emma, u were amazing and it has certainly already rubbed off. I am much calmer too!!!!
I just wanted to thank you very much for helping me with my 2 dogs.you gave me alot of inspiration and we are all working hard to make this work. I am very grateful and it has even made me take a look at my own life. It is much appreciated and has made things alot easier. I took both dogs for a walk today and I felt alot more confident with both of them. I was telling myself to relax and it worked.
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. I began to believe I was never going to have control but then I found Sitdropstay. 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.
I’m delighted to report that after your consultation our fence jumping problem appears to be cured. It’s really quite amazing. Really can’t thank you enough for your advice. She seems a lot happier and secure than she was as well. Great result – thanks very much for your very sensible and effective advice. It was money well spent.
I had seven dog trainers to choose from. I trusted my gut feeling and you delivered everything I was hoping for.
Very impressive. I was hoping id be impressed
I had Emma come out to help me with my terrier x on Friday. She was really fantastic. I walked the dog after the session and she responded extremely well. It’s been 2 days since I met Emma and I see a lot of changes in Ruby. Excellent knowledge and understanding of canine drive and behaviour. Thank you very much Emma.,
I just wanted to keep you updated regarding your visit on Saturday. Deablo has barked half a dozen times since Saturday and each time we have followed your instructions and he has responded well. I am yet to speak to our neighbors but know they would be so much happier with the peace and quiet! You really truly did save a 12 year old boy from being traumatized over the loss of his (mate) pet & have given all of us the opportunity to love our dog all over again!! So thank you!! All in all the change in Deablo and us humans is amazing. He seems so much more relaxed & I am confident, thanks to your amazing insight that things will remain calm & under control.
We had problems with our two dogs and the previous dog trainer’s solution was to re home the younger dog. Thankfully we found George. George worked wonders with our dogs. We now have two very happy well behaved dogs and two very happy dog owners.
Was thinking last night to drop you a line and let you know how everything has been going, so far – brilliant! Bear & Gia have both been displaying manners inside the house most of the time, there have been a few lapses (but after running wild so long, everyone is bound to slip up & forget) – but they haven’t gone without immediate correction. Walking Bear is now a breeze, the ideals have also worked on the boyfriend… you were right! Overall it has become a relaxed, calm & enjoyable household to be in again.
You recently trained my dog Bison (the Bulldog), and well i guess me and Rogan as well. I just wanted to thank you so much for your training and advice. We saw such a wonderful change in him and can’t thank you enough! I can actually take him for a normal walk now and he’s obeying our commands. Which means I’m not getting in trouble off Rogan!
Thank you so much for coming out and seeing Reiph on Saturday. Rich and I learnt so much from your visit, particularly about ‘leadership’. We are still marveling at how well behaved Reiph has been since your time with us. Reiph has become this chilled out, happy, obedient puppy. He is a pleasure to have around again!!
I would like to thank Emma for her visit to us. There has been a huge change in our Kendra already in such a short time. It is the best money I have ever spent. Thank you.
We just wanted to say thank you for your honesty and integrity. It is so refreshing to meet someone such as yourself.
I wanted to write to thank you for your help with our Staffy, April. She is a different dog since your visit, and we often regard, that it was the best money we’ve spent. She is now a pleasure to walk, trotting at the heel placidly, and has illustrated several times, that she is no longer aggressive to other dogs. The day after your visit, we were in the park, practicing out sit, drop, stay exercises, and a large free Labrador came bounding up ready to play! April was on the lead, which would usually have eventuated in a scuffle with bared teeth and hackles up! But instead, she looked to me for direction! AMAZING difference. Since that time, we have come across many other dogs on their walks, and we’ve had no problems what so ever. She is a changed and very relaxed dog! So thank you for your help, and advice. Thanks to you, we are really enjoying our pet.
Its great. People are amazed. We’d recommend Sitdropstay to anyone.
Absolutely miraculous! Our 1 year old was impossible. Embarrassing even to walk her, among other issues. Other forms of training didn’t work. Then we contacted George. In 2 hours he taught her to listen and showed us how to take back control.
We are over the moon. They’re like two different dogs. Its amazing what a couple of hours can do.
We were astounded at how George turned around the behaviour of our 6.5 year old dog (who we thought was beyond help) in a matter of minutes. More importantly, the results lasted after he left and my husband and I now feel confident about walking our dog because we are now in control. We would definitely recommend his services to anyone who feel as though they are not demonstrating the leadership that their dog needs and needs some help with any behavioural or training issues . Our dog went from nearly pulling us over every time we walked her to not going past our knees with no tension on the lead whatsoever. The results have been remarkable and very easy to achieve. Our only regret is not contacting sitdropstay earlier!
I have just returned from a walk on the main road with Amani and he was an absolute pleasure to walk. He didn’t pull, or try to chase the hubcaps of cars. He is now happily asleep on his bed. It was a pleasure to meet you George and be able to chat about alternative therapies. I’m always amazed at the synchronicity of meeting people. Thank you for empowering me to be a leader and reminding me to be present and live in the now like he does.
Hi. Just wanted to thank you for all your help with my cattle x kelpie dog Molly. In the two weeks since you’ve been we have seen a drastic improvement in her behaviour. She is a different dog!! We took her out in public which was usually a huge challenge and she was as good as gold. She never used to respond when we called her at the dog park and now she runs to our side. She now waits to be invited inside and waits at the gate before being invited into the car. She is a joy to be with. Thanks again. You’ve made our home so much more peaceful. I’m amazed at the difference.
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.
Hi George Thank you for your time last Friday. I thought I would let you know that my dogs are now adjusting to their new dominant leader – me. I have employed your suggestion of taking the dogs around the back to unwind before they come into the house and that also seems to be working. And in the last week could not find any new sprays from Zac. I have sung your praises to many of my friends.
Hi George, What a stress free home it is now!!!! Not a sound when I am at the bench in the kitchen, no more jumping, barking stops immediately, Max is perfect on a walk and Poppy is trying really hard. Thank you so much, what a difference when the human is trained correctly.
I can’t thank you enough for helping me with my strong willed Willow. Being half Poodle/Pomeranian she was so active/excited. She lead me in circles. Now I am the boss and life have become peaceful with my beautiful little pooch. Thank you so much George.
I would like to thank you for your help with our dog Izzy. She is now learning to listen and behave. Your training was fantastic and has made life a lot easier for us.
Good to talk to you this morning and to be able to give you such a positive report about our 2 dogs. Beso is really so much more relaxed. Many thanks to you and your methods.
Hi George. Just thought we would keep you up to date with progress since your visit. Both Rodney and Stella have stopped barking. It happened practically overnight. We would really like to say a huge thank you for all your advice. We are now feeling very confident to leave the dogs alone when we go out. We would recommend you to any dog owner.
Just thought that I would let you know that Lilly and I are getting on much better and she is being good 99% of the time. She has stopped jumping on the kids and Kane(4 year old) is walking her on her lead with Jacko (the older mutt) and I. Thanks so much for returning my sanity and helping me to calm Lilly.
George, I would like to say how impressed we were with you. We had 4 very spoilt, unruly dogs and they are all well on their way to being happy well behaved pets. Thank you so much.
Thank you for your help with Ginga. I was amazed by her sudden acquired walking skills. In only one week we have seen such a drastic change in her behaviour. I no longer feel like I am dislocating my arm every time I walk her.
George, Thank you for the most informative and up front call this morning regarding our Jack Russells. Its not often in these money hungry days that people will volunteer so much and be honest enough to say that they may not be able to cure the problem. Full marks. As a result we will be recommending you to other dog owners – the best word of mouth marketing. Thank you,
It was great to see such a wonderful improvement in Jets behaviour in such a short time. I can now take him for walks confident he’ll behave around other dogs.
We thought our dogs were untrainable. Within an hour they were walking down the street unrestrained and totally under control, ignoring dogs they normally would have gone crazy at.
Hello George, We are all going well. Susie is just a delight. Thank you again so much for taking us back to the basics. Susie walks well on the lead now and the backyard issues are sorted out too. When we go out she loves going into her cave (crate). So all up everyone is happy.
Thanks once again for all your help with Stormy and Thunder. Everyone is amazed at the difference you have been able to make to them and to me thanks once again.
I thought I would write and give you an update and thank you for the behavioural progress of our staffys Titan and Jedda. I still am amazed at times at the changes in them within the house, even my friends have commented on the difference in Titan. It is funny to think that he is now better behaved than Jedda. My husband and I now own the house and they just live in it and it is a great feeling. We no longer have to physically move them to the bed, one word and they go to their bed. We can sit on our couch together without being overrun by dogs. Thank you again.
Hi George You came out to our dog Seamus the other week. Things are going very well and I’m sure he is a much happier dog. The difference is amazing!
I just want to say thank you for your help. It is now a real pleasure to take Bella for a walk. She walks by our side and doesn’t worry about the other dogs. When I let her off the lead she stays with me and if she does stray a little she comes straight back when called. I am sure she is enjoying herself more now as well. Thanks again for your help and I have recommended you to many of my friends.
Just wanted to let you know some feed back from a friend of ours who saw you
on Sunday in Queanbeyan. We were talking to Rick and Jen yesterday and he said you came out and by coincidence it happened to be you. Martin is one ofour last pups. They mentioned how happy they where and how all of what you told them makes sense!! And where amazed with the results.Just thought you’d like to know.
Hi George I would just like to say thanks once more for teaching me to teach the pup. Bro will be way safer now that I know how to make him stay by me and not run off. I would also like to let you know that I really appreciate the fast follow up after I left an inquiry.
Thank you so much. Ruby is a transformed dog and so much happier. We had read about the ideas but couldn’tput it into practice. It is amazing how fast the change has been.
Hi George, It has been a little over a fortnight since you visited Tristen and I for some help with our beloved Boxer, Carlos. After you walked out the door that day, Carlos was clearly in shock. He did not move from his bed for close to an hour! Since the two weeks have passed we have made sure that we are consistent with Carlos and patient. He now waits to be invited in the house and when instructed to go to his bed he does (and he stays there until we tell him he can move!). We have instructed friends when coming over not to make eye contact or acknowledge Carlos until he they are inside and he is on his bed and calm. They were completely amazed in the difference in him in just a few weeks. I wanted to thank you again for your patience with Carlos and with us. We now realise that we were sending mixed signals to Carlos making him think that he was the king of the castle! The knowledge that you have on forwarded to us has resulted in balance and calm being restored to our house. I can’t thank you enough for passing on this information you have. What a great gift you have with Dogs!
Dear George, You may remember that, just after Easter, you came to help me with Darcy the boxer who was getting ready to travel to Manchester. I just wanted to let you know that, as a result of your advice and training methods, Darcy has become calm, learned to go in a crate without barking or getting distressed, has successfully made the 32 hour trip from Canberra to Manchester and, yesterday, arrived in great shape. He also now walks without pulling, so we are looking forward to good times exploring the countryside. Thank you for your help and good advice regarding training him. Meg
