About Our Socialization Dog Training

Socialization with dogs, humans, and other animals is a great way to ensure a well-mannered and confident dog. The best time to socialize is between 10-16 weeks of age, but not all dogs get to experience socialization as a puppy. A lot of rescue dogs enter their new homes without proper socialization, which can put stress on both the dog and the owner.

Below are signs that your dog may need extra socialization:

  • Fearful around people or other animals
  • Nervous when out on walks
  • Shy or overly excited around people or other dogs
  • Aggressive towards other dogs
  • Tail tucked between the legs

A dog with improper socialization runs the risk of becoming fearful or aggressive. Contact us today to see how we can help!

We have 14 grand-children that visit or stay with us regularly. When we got our 8-week-old Boxer puppy, Abbey, it soon became obvious that training her was a must. When we met Tim McMillan, from Sit Means Sit, at a Del Mar Home/Garden Show my wife and I were immediately impressed with his knowledge and experience. After checking out the website we signed up for training with Tim.

We started our training when Abbey, or our ‘Wild Child’ as we affectionately called her, was 4 months old. Tim came to our home and within 30 minutes Abbey was obeying commands to sit and come. We learned how to re-enforce those commands during the week. By the 3rd lesson Abbey was not jumping on us or our youngest grand kids which is a playful habit puppies have.

Our ‘Wild Child’ has turned into a gentle, loving, and obedient member of the family thanks to the training and guidance of Tim and the Sit Means Sit methods of training. I highly recommend Tim for obedience training. He is firm but loving in his tone of voice and mannerisms. Our Abbey immediately became friends with Tim and wanted to learn from him and us. Abbey, now 8 months old, can now be left alone with all our grand kids and not be aggressively playful. Our weekly outdoor meetings to interact with other dogs involved with Tim and Sit Means Sit is a highlight of the week for Abbey.

We are very thankful to have found Tim and training our Abbey with the Sit Means Sit method.

We are really astounded with Huey’s progress in the Sit Means Sit system. He started out as a very LARGE ball of energy, turns out he just needed something to channel that energy into. With daily structure and training, he has become incredibly obedient and attentive, he also really ENJOYS the training exercises, it’s fun for him. Huey is a smart shepherd with lots of potential, he just needed someone to guide him towards that potential, and for that we THANK YOU! Keep in touch!
