My husband, Troy and I, have owned Sit Means Sit Austin and San Antonio since 2010 and this is the best job ever! We both got into training dogs because we wanted dog owners to enjoy their dogs and be able to take them places with them. It’s no fun leaving them at home. We also wanted to save dogs from being sent to the shelter because of bad behavior.

All dogs are trainable. Some take a little more work then others but they all want to learn! People tend to get frustrated with their dogs because they don’t know what to do or how to help change the behavior. It’s not the dogs fault – they just need to be shown and taught what to do. They want the guidance and structure we can provide for them.

When I was growing up my family never had dogs whereas Troy grew up with them. When him and I got married that was one of the first things we did – we got a dog. We have been married for over 20 years and there has only been 3 years when we didn’t have a dog and that was when we were overseas for Troy’s job. Over the years we have had Newfoundlands and Mastiffs. We are definitely big dog people!

Since day one of owning a dog I have learned so much about dogs and how to care for them and train them. There is still so much to learn. Today we have 3 dogs that are constantly teaching me and challenging me. Joson is our old man and shop dog at 10 years old. He is a shepherd mix. Jezebel is our sweetheart, she is a 7 year old Dutch Shepherd, and then there is Smash. He is a 6 year old Belgian Malinois and if you know Mal’s, well that’s just leave that there!

My dogs are such a huge part of our lives and we want all dog owners to feel the same way!
