Whitney Duncan

I started Sit Play Stay in 2015 to offer the community a service with a professional background in the pet industry. I am a certified dog trainer through Animal Behavior College. I have trained and worked with dogs for over 10 years. While earning my professional Dog Training Certification (ABC14120) in 2007 from Animal Behavior College, I was a Veterinary Technician. This lead me to a position with the Behavior Management Department at the Jacksonville Humane Society. I had the opportunity to evaluate and train hundreds of dogs (and cats!) needing extra help learning to behave in an appropriate manner preparing them for adoption and working with some in their adopted homes when needed.

I am a mentor trainer for students working on their internship portion of their dog training certification.

I do private one on one training from puppy care to behavior modification. When available I teach group classes. I also do daily dog walking and pet sitting.

I am a co-owner of Sit Play Stay. I hold a huge passion for all animals. What was once a hobby is now a real dream come true. I run the ”behind” operations of Sit Play Stay. I manage the book keeping and finances in addition to continuous improvement in streamlining operations. I also manage the “I.T.” portion of the business along with the marketing.

Pets are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
