What was your initial reason for calling Sit Means Sit Dog Training?
“When we adopted Callie, she was very high energy and at times uncontrollable. We noticed she was tearing up the yard and ripping all our outdoor couch cushions. We wanted to be able to leave her in the yard while we were gone during the day, but after she chewed off our window sill that wasn’t looking like an option. Sit Means Sit was Callie’s last option.”
Please describe your experience and how your dog is doing now.
“This experience has been transformational for Callie. She is still the same fun, loving dog we hoped for but now we are actually able to enjoy having her in the house, and we are able to leave her in the yard during the day. She’s learned so much and in such a short time. The group classes have helped her calm down and still be obedient even with the distractions of other dogs. We are so proud of our well behaved pup!”
