I was nervous about not having my Kali by my side, the moment I met Megan I knew she’d take great care of her! Kali is unbelievably smart but equally stubborn and my first large and strong dog. I knew obedience training would strengthen our relationship and open up the world of dogs park in a safer manner. Kali is doing great after the 5 Day board and train, knows all her commands and is working on perfecting them. Megan did great with her and I couldn’t believe how sweet, talented, knowledgeable and caring Megan was with her!

Thank you Megan for all your hard work! We missed Bailey so much but you kept us up to date with text messages, pictures, and videos. We were a little nervous about starting the program but it was a great investment for us all. We look forward to continuing Bailey’s training to get her therapy certified with GoTeam. Bailey is so much calmer now that she has commands to focus her energy on. Thank you so much!

We absolutely loved our training with Megan – she is fabulous! She was kind and patient with us and our dog Gus! We have confidence now that Gus can behave in a neighborhood environment vs. country living that he was used to!

Thank you so much for your time and knowledge, we truly appreciate it – and so does Gus!

I’m impressed with Bette Davis’s training. Now it’s my turn to reinforce what she’s learned. Working a few times a day on it.

Way to go, Bella! Congratulations! We are so proud of you!!! Special thanks to the Sit Means Sit Team and especially Paul for training “mommy and daddy” on how to work with our favorite little girl, Bella! And thanks to the office staff for working with our crazy schedule to get sessions set up!

I can’t thank Sal at Sit Means Sit enough, he brought home our well missed Sunshine today after a 10 day Jumpstart program. Sunshine now pays attention to our commands in addition to learning a bunch of new commands that will be very helpful day to day. I was apprehensive about sending our family dog to an outside location for training, but after receiving the wonderful video updates and training progress during her stay; I felt much more comfortable. I can tell through Sal’s positive attitude, great energy level and professionalism that this is the program for us, it was apparent that Sal loves dogs and what he does.

Sit Means Sit has a great program that can work for the most challenging dog behaviors, because we thought we just had to tough it through the first two years of puppyhood and now we don’t!
I am looking forward to working with our newly trained Sunshine and continued lessons with Sal at Sit Means Sit.
Thank you so much from our entire family!

My sweet girl is doing SO much better after her 5 day board and train! I have full confidence that in a few short months, she’ll be able to follow these commands as second nature without her collar. Sal, I cannot thank you enough!

I came to Sit Means Sit as a very frustrated owner. I had even started looking for a new home for Emma because of her accidents and extreme fear of thunderstorms. I had talked with 5 other board and train programs before I met with Megan and Paul but I knew within the first 5 minutes that Sit Means Sit would be the best for my girls. They were typical Cavaliers with the royalty mentality and very sassy when they wouldn’t get their way. Zoe was the alpha of the house and the ring leader. They were yappy and would jump on people that came to the house. It would take forever to calm them down if it was someone staying. If someone was coming to work on the house, I would have to hold them the entire time. Emma was terrified of thunderstorms and would bark incessantly at thunder and lightning. After gaining confidence, she isn’t bothered by storms unless they’re really bad and then I am able to give her a command to help her refocus and she listens. I was worried about being away from them for 10 days but Megan would send me updates, post videos, and would text me updates whenever I asked. It’s such a great program but also having the support after they came home has been a lifesaver. I can call Megan anytime when I’m not sure how to handle a situation or if I need a reminder on something. Emma and Zoe love when Megan comes to visit. I cannot thank you enough!!!

Our training with Sit Means Sit and Megan McKenzie has been both fulfilling and very rewarding for us as a family and for our two German Shepherd pups. Megan is truly committed to tending to our pups’ needs (working on confidence and wanting a job to do) and our family’s as well. She is genuine and sincere and passionate about her work with the dogs. Sit Means Sit staff, Jennifer and Rachel, have always been quick to respond to any calls or email inquiries, and they have always taken the time to review everything and answer all questions.

I highly and confidently recommend these team of experts. It is refreshing to work with individuals who are truly committed and passionate about what they do and who they do it for (both four-legged and two-legged).

Charlie is basically my child and I was nervous to send him but he has been back a week now and is listening to me so well!! He is 4 also, so I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks! 🙂 thank you Sal!! Charlie loves you!

The training with you was a very, very rewarding experience, not only for me but also for my dog, Pearl. I learned a lot about how my body language & attitude affects her attitude as well, and results in positive results. Prior to signing up for your classes I came really close to returning my dog to the pound I rescued her from. I had no control over her in so many areas and I was extremely frustrated, almost beyond control. I was sure there was no way to turn this situation around. BOY WAS I WRONG! Thankfully, my daughter found you and Sit Means Sit turned me and my dog around after our first lesson. I am so thankful for your professional approach and knowledge of my dog and my situation. You were able to shape what I determined to be a hopeless case into a loving relationship with my dog. I’m sure she will progress into a faithful companion as I progress into more training. You have taught me that not only is she a smart & strong-willed dog, but also a very trainable one. Following your advice and training expertise has proven invaluable. Finally, having worked with customers and customer service for over 30 years as a national service manager of a large company, it is refreshing to work with someone who knows how to treat the customer. I appreciate the trouble you have taken to assist me with my (dog) dilemma. You may seldom hear it, but with your proven skills and attention to detail, the customer will serve you and Sit Means Sit well for years to come. Once again, thank you, thank you, thank you for all you do and what you have done for me and Pearl.

Great experience for us. Sal has been professional and incredibly nice. He answered all of our questions and updated us during the training process and we are excited about the progress made with our Capone.

We had our 9-month-old pup, Loki, train for 10 days with Sit Means Sit and it was some of the best money we’ve ever spent. We had to suddenly relocate from Tampa to NYC and they were able to take a pup who had been walked only 5 times in his life (we just let him out freely in our yard throughout the day) to a pup who is now walked multiple times a day in the big city with a million distractions. He is still learning and is still stubborn and rambunctious but the difference is night and day. He knows the commands as long as you practice with him and he has only gotten better and better. The trainers were kind and knowledgeable and helped us understand why Loki does certain things. I highly recommend them!
