Rae is an English Pointer mix who was adopted in August 2012. She’s about 77 pounds and is very stubborn for me, much more so than for my husband. We also have a Collie mix and a black Lab. One of the issues we had with Rae was finding her position in the “pecking order” with the other dogs. Rae liked to “bully” my black Lab when they were running up and down the fence, sometimes she would become defensive and snap at my Lab.
Rae would also sit in the middle of the yard when I called the dogs to come in the house – she would look right at me and not move when I called her name. I had to get her leash and go out to bring her in to the house.
I found Sit Means Sit at the Home & Garden Show in March 2013. I signed up for the free demo. I was nervous about the collar when Lisa came to the house, but once I felt it and saw how well Rae responded, now the collar is great. Lisa is an extremely helpful and caring trainer. Rae loves her to pieces. Lisa was able to offer helpful solutions to problems that have popped up from time to time. I have seen improvement in Rae – she gets excited when she sees the collar.
Its is still a training process but it is on the right path. It’s amazing what 10-15 minutes of training and group classes did/does for my stubborn Rae. It is so very well worth doing this training with Lisa and Sit Means Sit. I would and do refer Sit Means Sit to anyone and everyone who has a dog and wants to do training.
We’ll soon be starting with my black Lab, Jax, to help him learn to walk nicely on the leash, rather than pull constantly – this is how wonderful I think the training is.
