I gave my Z to them for 2 weeks and he came home skittish, fearful, emaciated and bites people who put their ha dis out for a sniff. He winced when I put the collar near him and that's the last he ever saw of it. The trainer taught him for commands that he already knew. She did nothing for the reason why he was in there. I called multiple times and only had a response from the trainer and the secretary. It wasn't until I threatened to go corporate that the owner finally called me and had a very belittling tone. The trainer had the nerve to... Read more

I worked very briefly with Sit Means Sit in Oregon, but that was enough to let me know this is no place to work if you like dogs and know about dog training. The training method is using electronic shock collars and food rewards; whether this is a problem is personal preference. I have no problem with this method as long as it is done correctly. The dogs are very stressed most of the time. When they are not being worked they are shut in a small kennel with up to 20 other stressed, barking dogs. Non-stop barking for 10 hour shifts, which you... Read more

Signed my giant schnauzer up for 2 weeks board and train for over $2500 I expressed concern at the beginning about the collar but was assured it would not hurt him. After taking the collar off when I got home he had 4 burned scabbed places on his neck. What a waste of money and harmful to my dog. I was fearful that this e collar would be harmful but they assured me it would not hurt him. I feel terrible that he was subjected to two weeks of this treatment and his neck is hurt. Would never recommend them to anyone. Read more

Before they know what they are supposed to do, you are punishing them. The trainer demonstrated with his own dog, an emotionless pup who was still being shocked the same way, after a year of training. After a week with this method, my pup cries, runs and hides when the collar comes out. Training should be fun, but instead it was torture. I will never subject... Read more

I left my 1 year old frisky golden retriever with a trainer in Colorado for a 14 day intensive training for $2,000 while I attended class out of state for the same duration of time. Within 24 hours of having my dog in one of their trainers care.....one of the trainers dogs BIT off half of one of my dogs ears!!!!!!! I was thousands of miles away and had to complete my class for my job beforeI could return. It was a horrible thing for both me and my dog. Now he hates all other dogs and I cant even take him to doggie parks. So if you want your... Read more
