At Sit, Stay, Play Dog Training & Behavior, we specialize in concerning behavior issues for dogs.
From fear issues to bite cases, reactivity to resource guarding, our internationally certified behavior consultants have worked with struggling families across the country to help their furry friends by focusing on the underlying problems and implementing a training plan to help.
We have recently changed our focus of training to behavior cases only. We are excited to fill a much needed service for dogs by doing this. Need a certified professional trainer for puppies or basic obedience? Follow this link to find the best!
Aggressive leash reactivity? Protective of their food, toys, or you? Displaying extreme fear or severe aggressive behaviors? Are you worried your dog is going to bite? Our certified behavior consultants can help you and your dog with these serious issues so that you and your pup can live in harmony!
Our Training Process
Tell Us About Your Dog
Our first step is to meet for a consultation so that we can gather appropriate information and design training plans specifically for you, your pup and your goals. Have video of the concerning behavior? Videos are super helpful when creating a plan for change. Send it over! (However, we do ask that if you do not already have the video, please do not put your dog in the situation causing the aggressive behavior. )
Typically consultations are done over Zoom because many of our dogs prefer this, but we know one size does not fit all. If you prefer an in person consultation, let us know!
We Will Help You Train!
We offer a 3 lesson package for behavior clients that will typically help most families. After you’ve finished the package, you are welcome to add on individual lessons if you would like to continue training. Our training program requires video to be taken and uploaded as we progress. This will help both the trainer and the client see exactly what is going on with your dog and how we train a more positive behavior. If you are not “video savvy”, let us know and we can help make it easy!
Set Your Dog Up For Success
We ask that you practice your training skills for 10-15 minutes, 2-3 times per day in between lessons. Practice really does make perfect! When you practice, you and your dog develop an amazing bond, you can see what questions you need to ask us to help you succeed and you and your dog develop muscle memory to help make your training stronger and more fun too!
ENJOY LIFE WITH YOUR DOG!
Our Training Philosophy
At Sit, Stay, Play Dog Training, we use force free, positive reinforcement methods because we believe in building a bond with your dog and becoming a team together. Force Free methods allow for the dog to make choices and not be punished for mistakes but instead be redirected into the preferred choices of behaviors. Positive reinforcement methods are based in science! Positively reinforced behaviors are the behaviors that reoccur most often. We want the dog and client to both feel great about their training experience!
See why dogs and their families love us
Highly recommend: Camille helped our family so much through her training sessions. She had a perfect demeanor to work with our challenging rescue dog. She approached slowly and with care. At the end of the sessions, our dog mastered most of the curriculum and overcame a lot of his fear response behaviors. Hiring Sit, Stay, Play Dog Training was the BEST thing we could have done for our household.
We just had our last session with Camille, and we had such a wonderful experience! We are so thankful we chose to start working with her when our puppy was just 11 weeks old. He learned so much and has mastered lots of commands at a young age. She trained us how to train him! She is patient, calm and uses positive reinforcement. We could tell she loves what she does very much!
Camille with Sit, Stay, Play is an awesome trainer. From the first meeting, her passion and knowledge is evident in what she does. She is very caring and patient in training puppies and their families using positive reinforcement. Her approach is very effective because she tailors each session to the individual puppy/dog. She is such a joy to work with and always answers my many questions each visit. Our Kingsley loves to see Camille at the front door! Thank you, Camille. We are looking forward to learning even more in our upcoming sessions!
Camille is great! Our golden doodle has had resource guarding, jumping, etc. issues. Both are pretty much non existent. We're working on barking and she gives great customized feedback with results. She's definitely worth the investment for our fur baby. 🙂
