About bEYOND THE SIT 

In life with a dog, all things are possible. We help you teach your dogs to make the right choices to create a lifetime partnership that suits your lifestyle.

Everyone has a dream they imagined when they brought their dog into their homes. Perhaps you imagined long walks together, traveling around in an RV, or a buddy to cuddle up with on the couch. Maybe that dream life isn't going quite as you expected! We are here to help you turn that dream into your reality.

Introducing Brienne the Founder of Beyond the Sit _ Lockport, IL
Hi! I'm Brienne.

I am here to help you enjoy every second of life with your canine family members using fear and force-free methods backed by science. I believe in fun and games producing long-lasting results without the "no's", drills, pulls, and yanks! 

I am a Gamechanger and Pro Dog Trainer through Absolute Dogs. I stand behind their philosophy of turning dog training struggles into strengths. Having a dog of my own trained through their relationship-building methods, I know whether your dog pulls on the leash or snaps at people or can't relax without you home - there IS a solution and we can work through it together all while increasing the human-dog bond. Our dogs are worth it!

CORE VALUES
We Promise to Do No Harm

We use only science-based Fear- and Force-Free methods and actively pursue continued education in such methods. This applies to both dogs AND humans as we promise to treat you both with the respect and compassion you deserve. 

Individualized Training Program

Every dog and every person is wholly themselves. We celebrate the individuals you both are and tailor your training program accordingly. 

Communication and Support

We understand living with a dog can be difficult at times and we are here to support you in person, via email, by text, or over the phone. We are here for you and want you to succeed in your dog-owning dreams.
