Matt Meitner – Owner/Head Trainer
Matt’s story is similar to so many others: He adopted a shepherd-lab rescue as a family dog but soon realized she was going to be more than he could handle alone. Bella showed signs of separation anxiety and dog aggression. In January of 2012, he reached out to Jason Loomis with Sit Means Sit-North Milwaukee for help.
After just a few weeks, Bella was no longer anxious or dog aggressive as she once was. Matt officially joined Sit Means Sit-North Milwaukee, as a part-time trainer, in July, 2012.
It wasn’t long before Matt realized his calling and became a full-time trainer in January of 2013. After a full year of learning under Jason Loomis, Matt became owner and head trainer of Sit Means Sit-Waukesha in January 2014.
Matt and his wife, Olivia, have 2 children: Caleb, who is a promising young dog trainer of his own, and Alyssa, another little dog lover. Along with Bella, Matt has one other dog, Kane, a pit-shepherd mix.
Matt also coaches high school football at Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School and trains in tae kwon do at World Martial Arts Academy in New Berlin, WI, where he is a 2nd degree black belt.
