At Sit Means Sit – Massachusetts, Our highly successful training process is based on pack psychology and how dogs instinctually learn.

By using time-tested methods, the dogs we train learn much faster and are much less prone to lapse into old habits; in fact, most dogs we train are ready for off-leash walks within 3 weeks.

    I’m looking into training for my 7 year old min pin. She has obedience issues with coming when called outside, barking, and at times being a bit nippy. Can you give me prices on the different programs you offer and what they include?


  2. Greg Becker says:

    I watched some of your videos and thoroughly impressed. We have 2 English Springer dogs from the same litter. Yes, I know that was a mistake other trainers have told us. I have had some success training them on my own but I still lack the confidence they will not bolt unleashed if they see another dog. The female is the alpha and the male is extremely protective of her with other dogs. We have no aggression concerns with either around humans but male around other dogs is a problem.

    I would like to a call back or email on how your program works and the cost.

    We have a six month old female bulldog named Millie. She loves people, especially children, is very curious, can be stubborn, and nips at us when we do not pay attention to her. I have brought her to puppy training classes, which she did okay in…she is very social and loved being with the other dogs! She is light a little freight train when she comes at us, and for a bulldog, seems to have lots of energy! She knows right from wrong but doesn’t cooperate.

    I’m looking for the trianer that spoke at Bay State Animal clinic in Danvers, Ma last month.

    I would like to speak with you regarding training for an Australian Sperard – she is 5 years old, usually well behaved but has developed increased lunging and reactivity to other dogs when walking on a leash. This is escalating to where she is growling and teeth barring at other dogs – typicaly when on leash – usually not occuring when off leash. Thank you, Louise Haug 617-335-9298

    I have a 2yo abused rescue who after a year has made some improvements with her fears and has attended a basic obedience class and did well for an anxious fearful dog.
    I would like her to master a few more important basic skills. She loves dogs and cats but people she still has some issues, ie mailman, strangers walking by house, my sister-who lives in the house. She rushes them barking, growling and will not stop. She also has some selective hearing, particularly if there is a squirrel or a new smell to follow. I’ve been told by her daycare that she is much different when I’m not around.

    Hi, I was wondering if you had any sort of gift certificates that you sold for training classes in the Worcester area?

  8. Jack Sullivan says:

    Do you have booklets you can send, or more info on your training system.

    My daughter owns a 2 year old Affenpinscher. He eats all kinds of inappropriate items…underwear, socks, chews holes in blankets and towels, tissues, rocks, leaves, sticks. Also, he is house trained, but occasionally he will go on a two or three day spurt where he will only poop in the house even though he has had plenty of opportunities to do it outside. He will not come when called if he’s outside. The main thing we are concerned about is the inappropriate items he eats. What do you suggest?

    Hi, thank you for such a special dog demonstration for the HHR field day! Your dogs were a pleasure, an energetic one, to watch!

    You mentioned a charity that you support and gave their site address a few times but it was hard to catch – would you e-mail it to me please?

    thank you and best

    Dear all,
    I would recommend your organization to anyone. My dog had the same behavior profile as Harley and his world was shrinking every week first to avoid dogs off leash, than any dogs, than people. Within the first lesson, Murphy’s behavior was modified sufficiently so that he remained sitting even when his nemesis Sunny strolled by. Eric the trainer was always courteous, always concerned about the well being of the animal and the psychological stress of the owner. His lessons extended waaay pasted the hour and he was willing to relocate to dog parks and simulate other cues like “the stranger at the door”. When I take Murphy out now, he is confident, relaxed and open for interaction. Thank you for giving me the tools to give my dog back his neighborhood.

    If I have a rat terrier with a bad habit of attacking my feet when I walk to the kitchen and food is being prepared or if I get too close to my wife or I get loud when telling a story.
    I tried punishing him by placing him in the bathroom and closing the door, but that did not work and he has bet me when he is like this. Normally when were the only ones in the house he is fine. it seems as if he feels he needs to defend the food and or my wife.
    Most times he is good and loveable, but his actions recently when I went to pick him up because he was attacking me he bit my hand pretty bad. I am looking for a ruff pricing as to just a way to train him some how to over ride this behavior or at least keep him in one spot until I tell him its ok to move. He is eight years old, and this behavior has got much worst in the last year. Frankly we are not sure how to relay to him this is wrong.

    We will be getting a purebred female Bull Mastiff, is this a difficult dog to train?

  19. Dave Skoletsky says:

    Hi,the temperament of your Bull Mastiff will determine if the she will be easy to train. Breeds have certain characteristics, but it depends on the temperament of the dog that will dictate their trainability. I hope this helps. All the best!

    I have a 3.5 year old Shepard Saint Bernard mix that I adopted from rescue agency when he was just a pup (approx 3 months). He has come a long way since he has arrived. He has attended training classes in the past and knows all his basic commands both verbal and signals and mastered them quickly. Now for the problem, he will not come when he is loose. I’m afraid he will get loose and hit. Just today in the vet parking lot he knew where he was and pulled out of his collar and took off. It took 2 vet assistants and myself to catch him (via lasso when he managed to get stuck in brush). We used to go to the dog park when he was younger. Now I don’t take him anywhere I cannot walk as he absolutely hates the car and he won’t come when I call him. He does have some anxiety issues that I was told he would probably never overcome because of his rough start. No issues to date with aggression.

    Hi, I have a 3 year Chihuahua/ Bichon mix that I need trained. He’s a good dog but still goes to the bathroom in the house, and pees on anything new. I just really need to break these habits.
    sincerely Justin
