Sit Puppy Sit's founder, Tammy, has been breeding dogs since 2004. She knows what it takes to break them of bad habits, to crate train them, and to socialize them with both people and other dogs. And she can do all of that over the phone—or through face-to-face computer technology such as Skype, Google Hangout, or FaceTime. She knows it seems unorthodox, but she has seen great success with her method, and her clients love that they can consult with her on a quick lunch break or during one of their kids' after-school activities.
Tammy's prep classes help prepare people for a new dog and discuss why new puppies do what they do. For instance, she teaches people that a young puppy won't fetch a ball thrown to the side not because it disdains such a futile activity but because its eye-tracking speed is too slow to follow a ball that fast. She also teaches pet owners how to teach their dogs basic commands and social skills, as well as how to teach them more advanced skills, such as calmly riding along in a canoe.
