Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) April 10, 2008

Las Vegas based Sit Means Sit™ is a nationwide small business success story. This remote collar dog training program with locations across the US and Canada has doubled in size, underscoring the success of remote collar dog training and the success that can be achieved by a passionate team. With 56 locations across the U.S. and Canada, and more opening every month, remote collar dog training is quickly overcoming its controversial stigma and helping dogs and dog owners everywhere to communicate better and live better lives together.

“There are over 74 millions dogs owned in the United States, according to The Humane Society of the United States – which works out to about 39% of households in the U.S. who need dog training,” explains Sit Means Sit™ owner Fred Hassen. “Many people don’t even bother with a basic puppy kindergarten and with over 10% of those 74 million dogs being adopted from shelters, there are a lot of bad dog and human habits to break, which is where Sit Means Sit™ comes in.”

Sit Means Sit™ is a dog training methodology that uses traditional tenets of dog obedience training and the best of today’s technology. The Sit Means Sit™ collars are used in place of traditional collars and leashes, as a virtual touch to queue the dog to the command. These remote collars, designed by Sport Dog® specifically for Sit Means Sit™ are completely adjustable to the size and temperament of the dog, merely acting as a prompt and behavioral modification tool.

In a short time, because of consistency and good training, for both dog and handler, ‘Sit Means Sit’ dogs are trustworthy off leash and in almost any situation. Sit Means Sit™ is good for puppies and older dogs – in fact Hassen and his team have showcased several “lost cause” dogs that have been successful rehabilitated using remote electronic collar training.

“We see amazing results with dogs and trainers every day. The Sit Means Sit™ remote dog collar does nothing but help a dog stay focused and truly be all they can be. Once people have the facts and see the results, they are so excited – almost as excited as we are!” said Hassen. “The most amazing process to watch is when a dog owner sees their companion truly listening, responding and behaving. Once that happens, the sky is the limit, which is why we have so many students coming back to us to become Sit Means Sit™ trainers.”

Several canine graduates of Sit Means Sit™ have gone on to become national champions, K9 police dogs, agility dogs, therapy dogs and of course, calm and happy family pets. The Sit Means Sit™ dog trainer schools, in Denver, Colorado and Las Vegas, Nevada have likewise been inundated with dog training enthusiasts excited at the prospect of opening their own Sit Means Sit™ business location. With only a $ 1500.00 deposit and a reasonable monthly fee that covers an impressive online, community based and print marketing campaign, many of these new location owners earn up to 10 times their initial deposit in their first year.

Hassen continued, “We work hard to support our new locations, but truly the best part of our business is the passion that remote collar dog and puppy training brings out in people which is what makes these locations successful. Our dogs are actually our best advocates and the fun part is – most of our students and even our teachers are just regular people. Some of our trainers had experience as canine police officers – we even have a FEMA dog handlers – but just as many are regular people who had regular jobs before this. We have school teachers and restaurant owners and they are great trainers and are making a great living.”

In the last year, excited by record growth in 2006, and a significant waiting list of potential dog trainers, Sit Means Sit™ added a second dog trainer training school in Denver, Colorado. Hassen also re-launched his freshly designed website (online at and has begun selling his own branded remote electronic training collar, the Sit Mean Sit collar from Sport Dog®.

Going forward, Hassen plans to continue to grow his YouTube channel found online at which showcases more of his 150+ dog training videos already online which have been viewed over 1,000,000 times.

Hassen finished, “Truly, the videos, testimonials and our growth speak for themselves. We’re thrilled to be experiencing this kind of success while making a difference to people and their dogs. We can’t wait to see what comes in the future as more people see our well trained dogs and learn more about remote collar training!”
