The biggest things in life have the smallest and most humble beginnings, and here at “It’s Not About The Dog”, we believe that you have to take those small things and nourish their potential until they grow and blossom into the best that they can be. Our uniquely designed puppy programs, for puppies between 8 and 16 weeks, are a vital step in the development of a happy and healthy pup. These special classes 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 behavior and how they communicate using body language.


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 fulfillment. 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.

We hold our first five session indoors, providing your pup with a safe, clean and comfortable environment. You puppy only needs to have had its very first vaccination for these sessions, and once they are fully vaccinated, we will move outside for the remainder of the training.


We pride ourselves on our intimate and cozy training sessions; small classes that allow for individual attention and an all-important personal touch. We welcome all children with open arms, encouraging them to join in for family-orientated fun.


On top of the irreplaceable training you will receive, you’ll also get the added bonus of a special manual and training DVD, “IT’S NOT ABOUT THE DOG! SETTING YOUR PUPPY UP FOR SUCCESS”. We always strive to go the extra mile, aim higher and shoot further on our ongoing journey to fulfill and exceed your expectations – each and every time. We also offer further interaction sessions during the week, enabling puppies to keep in touch with their newfound friends, and continue feeding and strengthening their blossoming relationships.


It’s our main priority to make the early learning process as fun, easy and stress-free as possible, allowing your dog to grow up happy, calm and content. We offer additional supplementary services such as Bach and Bush Flower Remedies, as well as Tellington T-Touch. It is our ultimate goal to make sure that you and you puppy get such thorough training – you’ll never need any again. If for some reason you do want to brush up on what you’ve learnt, we’ll give you a 50% discount for the rest of your pup’s life!


Remember – you and your K9 buddy are our motivation and reason for being!
