What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

The first step to get started is to schedule a FREE consultation with one of our trainers. The consult is about 45-60 minutes long and we will talk about what your training goals are. We will also discuss the different training options and programs (including price) at this time.

There are many benefits to having a consultation with the trainer before deciding to start training with us:

*See if you and your dog are comfortable with the trainer

*Get an opportunity to share with us what you want to accomplish with your dog

*Have a chance to meet the trainer SHOW you a dog that has been trained by them

*Watch the trainer work with YOUR dog for several minutes to show you how quickly they can pick up on the training we offer

*Ask a BUNCH of questions - Education is so important!

Other trainers do a lot of talking, but with us - we will SHOW you results!

We do the consultation 7 days a week. Normally the consultation takes place at your home and/or parks and other areas where you actually live your life. Give us a call at (330) 310-3647 so we can get your free consultation scheduled.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I learned about Sit Means Sit dog training while I was living in Denver, Colorado. I was looking for a dog trainer and was referred to Sit Means Sit by a man I met in a dog park. I was so impressed with the free demonstration they showed me. As amazing as it was, I was unsure that they would be able to get my dog under control.

My Australian Cattle dog had a ton of energy and he liked to run! He never came when I called him and would jump on people, grab food off the table and had numerous other bad habits. The trainer did a demonstration with my dog and within a few minutes had my dog totally under control and making eye contact with him. I immediately signed up for the training. Within three weeks of training, I had off leash control of my dog and he listened to me even around distractions. When I saw the results, I knew this company was something special.

Since I graduated from The Sit Means Sit School of remote collar dog training in November of 2007 I have worked with thousands of dogs and have continued educating myself and following my passion to be one the best dog trainers I can be.
