Sit, Dammit!

About the Trainer

Mary Ann Bourgeois is the owner of Sit, Dammit! Dog Obedience Training, and personally trains all of the clients.

She has trained all breeds and sizes of dogs for years. She started out as a teen with her very own hound, and has trained all of her own dogs since.

People started asking for her help with their own dogs, and she visited many homes, helping out good neighbors for free.

Eventually, she opened a facility where she could help more dogs and people, more efficiently, called Sit, Dammit! at the Hudson River Dog Obedience Training Center.


- AKC certified Canine Good Citizen Evaluator

- Therapy Dog Evaluator

- Successfully shows dogs in AKC, ASCA and Schutzhund obedience.

Testimonies from recent Graduates of
Sit, Dammit!

Joseph and Cocoa:
Joseph Puerto completed a six-week course, Puppygarten, with Cocoa, his Sashay, and says “This was one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had, I feel even closer to Cocoa, than ever before. She responds to all commands and is very obedient!”

Gina and Keno:
“Keno and I came into the beginner’s class being exactly that. Now, 18 weeks later, Keno walks in public without a leash, and responds to complex demands. Mary Ann worked wonders for Keno and I!”
