Animal shelters across America are running out of space. In order to make room for a constant influx of animals, thousands of adoptable dogs are being killed each day. While many dogs are adopted, the number of failed adoptions - dogs returned to the shelter - is staggering, reported as high 40%. What's missing is post-adoption support, counseling that provides basic information to new dog owners, enabling them to have a happy, functioning relationship with a new pet. This is where Good Sit comes in.

A dog with manners = A harmonious life together. So treat your dog right and everything else will follow!

 

 

          Mutual Communication and Dogs With Awesome Manners!

Founded by dog expert and host, Yulin Olliver, Good Sit lives online and is based in Los Angeles, CA. After seeing happy, healthy dogs being killed first hand, she started coaching post-adoption families 1-on-1 but wanted to make these life saving lessons available to anyone, anytime. After decades of learning and training dogs for agility and pet therapy, Yulin tapped into behavior experts from around the world to curate the most effective and widely accepted 'dogmas' in professional dog training for Good Sit; the only video-centric, one stop, crisis management, beginners training curriculum for parents of newly adopted dogs.

 

Congratulations, you've just adopted a dog! ... Now what?
Congratulations, you've just adopted a dog! ... Now what?

New pet parents have an unlimited amount of questions and concerns about their new family member. More than just training, but simple things like, "How much do I feed him?", "He keeps having accidents in the house." "My dog hates other dogs, i'm afraid he'll hurt someone." All valid concerns and a lot of new dog owners have no one to turn to. Too many times, this results in simply taking the easy way out and returning the dog back to the shelter.

Good Sit is bridging that gap. A resource that you can turn to in the privacy of your own home. Good Sit is improving the forever-home statistics by setting new dog parents up to succeed. To empower them with new tools, "first day rules", and an understanding of their dog, such that new families experience love and harmony with freedom and ease.

The Good Sit Curriculum
The Good Sit Curriculum

 

To become part of the Good Sit Community you would log on to our site and choose the package that best fits your needs as a pet parent. We have two core packages to choose from as well as bonus lessons. Each curriculum is available for a one time cost, you are then able to view the curriculum as many time as you would like. 

 

 

 

Good Sit is a firm believer in paying it forward. We want to be able to help as many homeless dogs as possible. So, for every curriculum purchased, one is given to a homeless pet and their new family when they are adopted. We call this "Buy-One, Give-One" 

 

 

 

 

 As a thank you for supporting our Kickstarter, we would like to repay you with some #Doggoneawesome rewards! (View rewards amounts on the right side of page.)

 Founder, Yulin Olliver got her start in action sports! Because of her involvement and activism in action sports we are offering some very cool autographed items! Animal lovers, and pro skateboarder/snowboarder Vanessa Torres and Cara-Beth Burnside have donated their very own custom boards for us to give as a reward on Good Sit!

We can not wait for a world where innocent dog are not killed simply because there is no room for them. By continuing to educate society and launching a program like Good Sit, we feel that we can significantly change the statistics. Thank you for taking the time to read about our product. 

#TreatYourDogRight ... and everything else will follow!

Risks and challenges

Every project comes with its own deal of risks and challenges. We are blessed with an amazing team who has moved mountains for us to get this project up and rolling.

Our two biggest risks are:
1) Making sure the community knows about Good Sit. Good Sit will play a huge role in more successful adoptions at local shelters and rescues. You can help us by sharing our Kickstarter and joining our journey on social media.

2) Making sure we get the funding needed to push this product into existence. The risk of losing upfront costs, upfront investments, sunk costs on branding, creation of curriculum and network TV quality Beta Prototype video lesson. We truly believe in this product and have seen it work wonders on the lives of dogs and their new families, first hand. It is now making sure everyone else is able to experience by accessing it online anytime, anywhere, in 2-3 languages and become a part of this amazing new venture.

REVISION PROCESS
We want to hear from you! We are so excited to able to get feedback from beta testers in the Los Angeles area. We are open and willing to have more beta testers test our product. This will help us explore our current content and change things as we go into production to ensure the best, most-turnkey, fun and effective curriculum possible to the Dog Community.
