Welcome To Sit's Getting Real Dog Training!

At Sit's Getting Real Dog Training in San Diego, our trainers specialize in positive reinforcement-based techniques that help build a comfortable learning environment for dogs and owners.

Introducing Tomas Natterstad & Amanda Martin

Owner and founder Tomas Natterstad began his career in the animal care and behavior industry in 2009. In 2019, he stepped away from his job as an Animal Control Officer in San Diego and shifted his career to positive-reinforcement dog training. "Natterstad Pet Training" now known as "Sit's Getting Real Dog Training" was born! Helping animals has always been a big passion of his, and wants to educate the public on how to resolve common behavior challenges.

As referrals started to grow from partnering with many local rescues, Tomas brought along Amanda Martin, fellow owner and dog trainer in San Diego!

Amanda has been coaching and educating people for over two decades. She decided to start training animals, as she believes every animal deserves a chance at being their best self. Being a proud parent of many rescues, including four dogs, three cats, and three rabbits, she is committed to setting you and your animal up for success.
