Ready Set Sit is a family owned and operated dog training and behavior rehabilitation center in southern Illinois owned by Misti & Josh Funk.
Our passion lies in helping people with their dogs. Whether it’s helping to get a new puppy off to a great start to modifying serious behavior issues. Josh and I take pride in creating a family atmosphere where you will feel welcomed, listened to, engaged in your lessons and enjoy the process of working with your dog.
It’s all about Real Dogs – Real People – Real Life.
Our individual journeys into the dog training and rehabilitation world got started with our own dogs. Long before we met each other we each had a dog with some pretty big behavior challenges. Dog on dog aggression, human aggression, jumping, barking, car chasing just to name a few. These two dogs led us to seek help from a dog trainer and not only did we get the help we needed but also found a deep love for dog training and rehabilitation.
Countless hours of training, courses, trainer's academies, dog psychology workshops, books and videos later, here we are. Together we have a combined 20 years of experience training and rehabilitating dogs.
Over the years we have enjoyed training dogs in basic and advanced obedience, scent games, puppy foundation work, service dogs, therapy dogs, retrieving and have had the privilege to rehabilitate dogs with behavior issues like aggression, general anxiety, separation anxiety, housebreaking, over excitement, and possessiveness among others.
Raising, training, rehabilitating and adventuring with dogs is our lifestyle. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram (Links at the bottom of the page) to see what we are up to with the dogs and families we are working with and the fun, adventures and work we do with our own dogs.
