Specialties "I Said Sit!" offers training and behavior problem solving for all dogs and puppies. We believe there are three key factors to successful dog training:
› Recognition that your dog needs to look to you for leadership
› You should be the most important thing in your dog's life
› Training should be fun for both you and the dog
Knowing that allows us to show you how to use guidance and a reward based training program to teach your dog lessons like "sit"; "stay" and "come" as well as solve behavioral issues without using dominance based training or confrontational training methods. Jonathan uses praise; motivation; play and structured guidance as part of the training program -- a proven formula designed to help dogs learn faster as well as enjoy the learning process. He does not believe in and never uses shock collars; punishing corrections or any other confrontational methods. HistoryEstablished in 1988. "I Said Sit!" was started by Jonathan Klein in 1988.
