I am writing this letter to let you know what a great trainer you have in Tom Mancuso here in the Kansas City area. He has worked with our dog Trapper for 2 sessions now and has done wonders with him. We felt that our dog would never listen to us and be to excited to have company over. Never in my life would I have thought that my dog could do what he is doing now with such little time of training. Mr. Mancuso has been very professional and courteous on every appointment and seems to genuinely care about the progress of Trappers training. I have told everyone that I know who owns a dog about Sit Means Sit and will continue to do so. Keep up the great work.

My little Yorkie, Mandy, was very difficult to handle. At almost 2 years old she barked incessantly at everything. When family or friends came over she was totally out of control. The best thing that ever happened to me was contacting Tom Mancuso and learning about the Sit Means Sit dog training method. After only one week she was greatly improved. After the 3rd week, unbelievable progress. I would recommend this method to any one with dog training problems.

I called Sit Means Sit after having no success with training at a
local pet chain store. Neeko is a 8 month old Cairn Terrier, who
although cute and sweet, was beginning to exhibit typical diva dog
manners. She barked, nipped, pulled on the leash and the list of
demands was growing by leaps and bounds every day. Coming home from
work to a puppy who acted like a diva made me think that I wasn’t cut
out to own a dog until Tom came to the rescue with his demo and
instruction. In just a week she changed for the better. By the
second week, walks were a breeze because she focused on me, her
leader. And she even looks at me when we walk. Needless to say
Neeko’s behavior has improved tremendously. I get comments about how
well behaved she is when I take her out. More than anything our
relationship is better and bonded. She looks forward to wearing her
collar. And her personality has been able to shine. Neeko has
changed from a diva into a class act thanks to Tom and Carrie.

Wow, where to begin? Bull’s Eye (Jack Russell Terrier) kept us on a constant watch for escapes! Anytime the door was cracked open he would be on the loose and we would spend hours chasing him down or waiting for a phone call that someone had him. He pulled us around when we took him on the leash, barked non stop at other dogs, birds, squirrels, children etc. Basically, he trained us to move our lives around to suit him. But Sit Means Sit and JB gave me the dog of my dreams!! I can’t say enough about Sit Means Sit training and JB. I am a single mom and was concerned about spending the money on Bulls Eye but I knew I had to do it or we were going to loose him one day. So I did it. It was the BEST MONEY I have ever spent in my lifetime!!! His personality has not changed at all, he is still the wonderful, loving dog he has always been, but now he is obedient and a delight to take outside and other places. My neighbors are thrilled and constantly commenting on what a change they see in Bulls Eye. He is so much happier as am I. I am eternally grateful for Tom, JB and Sit Means Sit!! Sign us up for more training!!

Sit Means Sit was a godsend for us. We have four big rescue dogs – 55 to 80 lbs, all mixed breeds, and all 6 years old or younger. Overall, they have always been pretty good dogs, but we’d allowed them to develop some unpleasant habits – bolting out the doors and gates, crazy barking at roaming dogs and visitors, jumping up to greet people, not coming when called, and Rani had a bite problem, guarding food, toys, her bed, and her crate. Within the first visit, we were able to keep all 4 dogs seated calmly on the rug in the entranceway, waiting for permission to exit. I was able for the first time to reach into Rani’s bed and crate and take things from her without having to worry about getting nipped. That alone was a miracle in my book. On the second lesson, we were able to take all 4 dogs off-leash out in the unfenced front yard for the first time ever. Over time, we’ve learned how to use the Sit Means Sit system to teach the dogs just about any command we want, and have them obey! We tell people the collars and remotes are ‘hearing aids,’ which is exactly what they are for us. The thing to remember about Sit Means Sit — it’s a tool to allow responsible, involved and patient owners to better communicate with their dogs. It’s up to me and my husband to work the system and use the skills and tools that Sit Means Sit provided us. The greatest gift Sit Means Sit gave me was the confidence to work with the dogs. I know they’ll listen now, I just have to teach them what the words mean and what ‘right’ looks like.
