Pack Animals

Because dogs are social “pack” animals, they have an inherent desire to belong and be a part of our lifestyles in an active way – often becoming a nuisance or problem with their behavior choices. Although some dogs may deliberately disobey, most dogs have never learned clearly what you want from them. They act in ways that may not be socially acceptable in the “human world ” in which they live. In reality, dogs learn very quickly. When something works once for them, they try it again. The goal is to help the dog learn the right behaviors and leave the wrong ones.

Kids of all ages can be part of the training.

Building a Relationship

Our job at Sit Mean Sit, Phoenix is to help you learn to direct your dog in the most effective ways. We give you the ability to get your dog’s attention through clear communication to the dog. This creates a positive and lasting relationship, increasing the bond that you and your dog have together. Through a variety of training techniques including using a leash, a remote training collar, favorite toys or food rewards, we have a superior training system. We designed specific training exercises to help your dog learn and become confident, happy and secure. Using our methods, both adult dogs and puppies learn faster and easier with very gentle handling.
