Sit Means Sit Fort Worth opened April 17 at 363 Keller Parkway, Keller. The dog training facility offers a unique way to train man’s best friend.

“We offer dog training for obedience, socialization and house manners in three formats: private lessons, day trains, and board and trains all followed up with group classes,” General Manager Mindy Yates said.

Yates said most of the clients see dramatic results in as few as six days of training, depending on how involved they are in reinforcing what the trainers teach.

“We know that everyone has a busy schedule, though, so we offer several programs of various lengths to improve their success,” Yates said.

The Sit Means Sit dog training program was developed by Fred Hassen more than 26 years ago. Yates said each franchise has to have at least one representative certified directly by him or his training staff every three years.

“That means that if you move from the Fort Worth area to another city in the U.S. that has a Sit Means Sit, it’s the same training program,” Yates said. “Your dog can pick up where you live now from where they left off in Fort Worth. We are all committed to our motto: Faster. Smarter. Better.”

Sit Means Sit has 170 locations nationwide. Before setting up shop at the Keller location, Sit Means Sit Fort Worth was a mobile training company for 17 years. While Yates said the business still has a mobile component that services customers from the Oklahoma border down to Crowley and from Irving to Weatherford, she is excited to have a permanent location in Keller.

Keller is a fast-growing community with a wide variety of fun loving people with dogs,” Yates said. “Lots of communities are within easy driving distance and the local government has been very supportive of us here. We look forward to inviting the community to an open house near the end of summer! Dates and times to come!”
