It's Not About The Dog

It's No About The Dog Logo Puppy Lifestyle Program


The first three months of your puppies life sets the bar for everything, and if you get it right here, you’re on the right path towards a lifetime of happiness and fulfilment. It’s your puppy’s genetic window of opportunity, and the ripe time to introduce them to other dogs and the everyday experiences of life. If you do this within the first three months, you will eliminate unnecessary stress in the future.

Our uniquely designed, one of a kind puppy programs have been formulated to fully prepare K9 parents to provide their little ones with the best start in life possible, through gaining an understanding of dog behaviour and how they communicate using body language.
