A reactive dog overreacts to normal situations that other dogs would take in stride. They become overstimulated easily and may bark, lunge, and growl at something as simple as another dog or person walking on the other side of the street. Attention to training is extremely important, as reactivity can turn into aggression. The cause… Read More


Socialization with dogs, humans, and other animals is a great way to ensure a well-mannered and confident dog.

Our dog had the absolute best experience with all of the trainers at Sit Means Sit. We started with puppy training and then moved into distraction training. Our pup loved her instruction and developed exponentially week over week. We also appreciate the time spent with us to provide us with the knowledge and skills to continue her training at home. We are also so pleased to have the option for group classes too and will be attending regularly!

I rescued/adopted an English bull terrier from the APL. Out of all my rescues, she was the most difficult and challenging, to the point where I thought she may not be a good fit with my other dogs. I decided to try sit means sit, and it was a true game changer after the first lesson. They establish boundaries for her and restored balance to the house. They were a true lifesaver! Highly Recommended!
