Welcome to Sit Spot Click!  
     Does this sound familar; "Spot come, Spot come, come here Spot.."  or "get down Spot", or "No Spot No, drop that Barbie it's not a dog toy!"  What about house training?  Would you like to have your dog in the house and not be afraid of having to reclean the carpets every other week?  Does your dog think it's the best game in the world to get out of the yard, and then run as far and as fast as it can away from you?  How would you like to be able to have your dog and enjoy him too?

     As a trainer, I promote the use of positive reinforcement to help shape the behaviors of your pets. To do this, I use what is known as “the clicker method”. 

     The clicker method works faster than other training methods.  Why?   Because your dog will want to do what it is being asked to do.  Like you, your dog retains new information better when it is HAPPY information! (Imagine if everytime you took out the trash you got a 10 dollar bill, how often would you be taking out the trash?)  Your dog will happily run to you when you call it.  Potty training isn't as daunting as it might seem.  You can have guests over, and they won't leave covered in dog hair and drool.  You and your kids can play with the puppy without looking like you all have been in a cat fight!
In fact......the clicker method can even be used to train cats!   

If you would like to contact me for more training tips or to set up a training session(s) email me at    I would love to help you and your pet get started on the right!

  1. I took my 4 year old dog to the class, and she's a good dog, but was scared of all the other dogs. By the end she would try to go over to the other dogs to say hi. She also learned to leave something alone if I asked her to and to listen to me better. Thanks Aliesha!
