|We offer TRAINING at Sit Stay in Newtown, PA
At Sit.Stay. we believe that a lot goes in to owning a happy, healthy dog. Every dog requires the proper food, exercise, love and shelter. More often than not, our 4 legged kids require some training and we as their parents require an education in how to properly train them.
Our trainer, Harry Vitello, is a former police K9 handler and brings this unique experience of working with police K9's to Sit Stay. During his career, Harry was recognized as the most improved K9 team, received the United States Police Canine Association Patrol Dog 1 certification; coming in second place overall, with first place finishes in obedience and agility and a third place finish in criminal apprehension. Harry also received the United States Police Canine Association Regional Narcotic certification, a Criminalistics K9 Excellence Quarterly Award for a police canine capture of a fugitive and recognition from the US Marshall's Service for the apprehension of a wanted felon from North Carolina. In addition to many apprehensions, evidence recoveries and narcotic finds, Harry also has received numerous letters of appreciation for his work as a K9 handler from police departments and the public.
Harry brings a practical approach to dog training. Time, consistency, positive reinforcement, and often thinking outside the box, he quickly bonds with the dog, modifies the behavior and then teaches you how to achieve the same result.
With education, structure, and patience the bad habits that your dog has picked up over the years can be changed and you can get your dog set for a lifetime of success. Are you confused about how to bring a new puppy or rescue dog into your home? Do you need help acclimating your dog to a new baby?
Harry can help fix any issue from aggression, counter surfing, jumping up, and the ever popular dragging and pulling on the leash. He works with all ages and all breeds puppies, rescue dogs, your 5 year old jack russell that won't stop jumping on guests at the door.....

“Harry not only works to train our best friends, but also us as dog owners. As long as you are willing to put in the work, you will see instantaneous results from your training sessions with Harry. On top of educating our K9’s and us as owners, the love and compassion Harry has for all dogs is unmistakable. He truly is helping Murphy to become a well behaved dog while teaching me how to be a better doggie dad!"
" we have used Harry for the training of 3 dogs in our family. One of them, a pit mix, has always been a puller on leash and we could never break him of this. Harry had him walking gently by my side within 10 minutes of training. He's gentle but firm with the dogs, is able to pick up on their personalities quickly, is very good at explaining what our family needs to do to achieve what we want out of our dogs and he's very compassionate and caring. I also like that Harry doesn't use harmful tactics to get results; it's all based on praise and consistency. Would highly recommend him."
