I can’t begin to express my gratitude to Bob and Eileen Burnell at “Sit Means Sit” for “giving us our dog back!” Crush, our 4 year old German Shepherd, has always been a sweet, relatively obedient dog with all of our family, but strangers and new experiences, like going to the kennel or vet, brought out the worst in him. Crush was insecure and timid when we adopted him at 6 months, but along the way, combining the lack of confidence with his inclination to protect us got him into trouble.
Bob and Eileen certainly trained Crush—giving him confidence and guidance, but more importantly they trained us—particularly me—to become the leader. Their complete and thorough explanations of the philosophy of their training method, directions to me about how and why to conduct practices with Crush, and incredible patience when we didn’t always get it right the first time translated into tremendous progress for all of us. Even the folks at the kennel commented on the difference in Crush already.
Bob and Eileen’s very obvious love for the dogs and their clear concise training plan that gets results every step of the way is a winning combination.
I could go on and on, but I will simply say that I recommend “Sit Means Sit” wholeheartedly.
Here is Crush, one of my newer client’s dogs. Crush knows many commands, but like most dogs can become lost when a distraction comes into play. We had a great time with him and the client has already seen a difference in his behavior. Dogs that are under control tend to be calmer and more relaxed.
