Meet the One They Said Could Not Be Housebroken… and is Now Amazing…Fiona!

Meet the adorable Fiona who will melt at your feet (and into your heart!)

Meet the adorable Fiona who will melt at your feet (and into your heart!)

Fiona is lucky to be loved by the same wonderful family as Presley consisting of Gillie, Tripp, Maggie, and Brynn.

She can be found melting at people’s feet  in Westminster, 80021.

Fiona’s has many aliases including Fi and Fifi.

She proudly represents Retriever Mixes everywhere with her lovable attitude.

Fiona’s Favorite Things Include: Bones and antlers, belly rubs, tug o’ war, fetching, bringing toy offerings to her loved ones

She Dislikes: Not being able to access the family cat or anyone giving anyone else a raspberry.

Her Favorite Treats: Bones and antlers and anything food related.

Her Favorite Toy: All toys. They are all hers!

A Little History: When our other dog, Presley, started to seem lonely, we got Fiona as a Christmas gift for her in 2013.  She was a year and a half old.  Her previous owners said she couldn’t be housebroken or stay in her kennel without barking, but she did both almost right away for us.  She’s a super sweet dog, who’s always eager to please!  She loves coming to group class at SMS because of all the dog and human friends she gets to meet.  Warning:  She has a very low melting point and has been known to melt right off a place board when receiving a belly rub.

Fiona’s Motto For Life: “Am I a good dog?” (We all think so!”)

Meet The Once Excitable Shih Tzu Poodle, Oliver, Who Now… Paddleboards?!

Oliver the now polite, paddle boarding Shih Tzu Poodle!

Oliver the now polite, paddle boarding Shih Tzu Poodle!

Oliver is owned by our talented client, Cassandra & Jordan.

He can be found greeting people and paddle boarding in Arvada, 80002.

Oliver has a number of code names including Ollie, Choochie, & Munch. (We aren’t going to give them all away, though!)

Just look at that face! Does he not perfectly represent Shih Tzus and Poodles everywhere?

His Favorite Things: Belly rubs, tug of war, and chasing rabbits!

He Dislikes: Bath time, the vet, and vegetables (what’s this green stuff? yuck!)

If you have any of the following treats, you may just have a friend for life: bully sticks, apples, bananas and chicken.

His Favorite Toys: Mini tennis balls and stuffed animals with squeakers!

A Little Oliver History: Jordan and I adopted Oliver from Foothills Animal Shelter in May of 2012. He picked us just as much as we picked him. It was love at first sight! Ever since then we have been inseparable. Oliver comes to work with us everyday and has now taken on the role of office security. He used to run up to every person that entered the office and bark at them, but since joining Sit Means Sit he now greets people in a friendly non-barking manner. He is also learning to play well with other dogs and not run up to them and bark at them. We have always taken Oliver to do things with us, but now it is even more enjoyable since he is so well behaved.

Oliver’s Motto on Life: “Food?”

Doggie Spotlight: Meet the Handsome Great Dane, Scooby

Big in size, gentle in spirit, the Great Dane, Scooby!

Big in size, gentle in spirit, the Great Dane, Scooby!

 

Scooby Doo is owned by our client, Colleen.

You can find him solving crime and staying handsome in Westminster, 80234.

His other aliases include Scoobs or Scooby D.

If you couldn’t tell by his grand size, he is a proud member of the Great Dane breed.

His Favorite Things Are: walks, car rides, people, and his cat brother, Scrappy Doo

He Dislikes: vegetables and small dogs who walk under him

Favorite Treats: hot dogs, busy bones, steak,  & chicken

Favorite Toys: remotes, phones, magazines, & sticks

A Little Bit About Scooby: We got him from Great Dane Rescue two years ago.  Scoobs is very puppy like and stubborn.  Although he knew his basic commands, rabbits, other dogs and people made him ignore most of them and it was a tug of war to get him to listen and not jump on people.

Now, he is like a new dog.  Within one minute of working with Anthony, he was listening and paying attention and not distracted by all of the other dogs.  It was like a miracle had happened and the best part is that he ignores rabbits and other dogs on walks and I don’t end up face down on the ground looking like a rodeo clown.  Or, at Urgent Care getting a shoulder X-Ray like in the past when a rabbit crossed his path.  I know it sounds crazy, but he seems happier too!!

Scooby’s Motto for Life: “i am a person and i am special”

One Day of Dog Training!

Here’s a great email from a brand new client that started her 8 month old Belgian Malinois yesterday — What can we do for YOUR dog?

“OMG!!!! Been working on the few commands, sit, heel, break, and had to change the “lets go” to “here boy”. Our lab kept jumping around thinking she was going for a car ride. Took Axel on his morning walk, he was like a whole new dog and it hadn’t even been 24 hours since the training began. It was the first time we were able to walk all three dogs together, (usually Axel goes by himself he would get crazy with the other two around so trying to get out of the neighborhood to the bike trail was insane). His heeling was really good, no pulling no barking no trying to chew and shake the leash. His coming in the field was excellant, then Luna (the lab) saw a rabbit and they both chased it, so I did the “come” command, and it took two “comes” and he ran back. I was amazed and impressed, I told Joel, in six months I couldn’t even imagine what he will be doing. He has been playing frisbee and has noticably become less obsessive, I am so amazed! Can’t wait for the next session!”
Teri

Way to go, Teri and Axel!

Does your dog like to swim?

So this summer we participated in the Buffalo Bill Days parade in Golden, CO. We extended an invitation to have clients and their dogs join us – of course to show off their amazing dogs and their training! In spite of being a little anxious, Jennie came along with her dog, Mazie. I told her not to worry, it would be fun and Mazie would do great, then we’d all go swimming to cool off. She said, “oh no, Mazie can’t swim, we can’t ever get her in the water”, to which I jumped at the chance to teach her and give Mazie some new freedom!

I just came across Jennie’s email again, and thought I’d share it. If you’d like you’re dog to swim, call us!

Dear Anthony and Bob,

First of all, thank you both very much for including Mazie and me in the parade today. It was so much fun.  Mazie loved all the attention. She was off-leash for the entire parade! Thanks to the training you have provided, she was able to do so extremely well today.

Thanks, Anthony, for taking the time to get Mazie in the water.  What a beautiful site to see this big white dog in the water and having fun!

I had a wonderful morning and certainly appreciate the t-shirt, but more than that, being asked to participate. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! You guys ROCK!!!

Thank you, Jennie, for sharing in the fun and for the kind words – all we did was show you how, you did all the work to gain the rewards!

Sit Means Sit Pit Bull lost his leash!

Here’s an update video of Zeus, our 9 month old Pit Bull client, who’s living with me in our Board and Train program. This video shows his progress over the last 6 days. Sit Means Sit Denver is all about dog obedience training as a path to fun and freedom with your dog. His owners have had a very hard time getting control of this happy, active dog. They love him and want to have a trained dog that they can feel more confident including in their activities. From what he’s learning, they’re going to be very capable of that!
