Finally, Dog training that works!

Sit Happens Dog Training offers professional dog obedience training to not only remedy inappropriate behavior but also “Wow” your family and friends.

When you need help with behavioral issues, dog manners, dog training, or puppy training, “Sit Happens Dog Training” is the first place to look. We will train your dog and educate you so that you can control your dog under the most challenging conditions.

The method we created combines a unique approach and proven obedience techniques to help owners effectively communicate with their dogs. You will be amazed at how quickly your dog understands your commands and becomes a happy, safe, obedient dog that everyone can enjoy.

We know that owners want their pet to be safe, happy and obedient so that they can enjoy all the best that life has to offer. If your dog exhibits bad habits or challenging behaviors like jumping, barking, chewing, soiling in the house, pulling on the leash, running away or aggression, we can help. Our premier training has helped families put the ‘best’ back in man’s best friend.

We evaluate your dog for free. We then lay out a training program that covers all of their behavior problems and more! We give you the tools you need to train your dog without spending hours practicing. We train your dog to pay attention to you and to ignore everyday distractions. This is not traditional dog training. This is a method of training your dog that helps you gain his attention whenever you need it. The rest of the time they get to be dogs. Enjoy a new found freedom that will change the way we live with our dogs

Dave is amazing!! He changed my dog and I’s lives! He is reliable and hard working. His work not only trains the dog but more especially the owner on how to handle their dog. I would give 6 stars if possible! Thank you Dave!

Dave helped us immensely with our five-year-old Yorkie mix, Max. Max's behavior at the door, getting the leash on, getting the muzzle on for vet visits -- all that and more had gotten incredibly difficult. We saw *significant* improvements -- in just a couple of weeks -- with minor changes to our behavior and patterns. Dave is both personable and results-oriented, while also demonstrating his love for dogs, including ours. We recommend Dave!

We are so glad we met Dave! We adopted a puppy 4 weeks ago, and he has been a HUGE support for us integrating Merlin into our family. He has taught us how to get started training early, and he has responded very fast to any questions we have outside of our sessions. We can't wait to continue working with our new addition to get him trained off-leash like Dave's dog. We can't recommend him enough!

I LOVE Dave! I've known him 5 years and I still go back to him with questions, he is committed, responsive and just gets it. He has been my Go To trainer for my 5 year old Weimaraner Grace Olivia from the moment I brought her home - from the beginning he showed so much care and concern for my girl, and she is AMAZING because of his efforts to train me! I am getting a new puppy soon and you better believe he/she will be a Sit Happens graduate as well!
