It’s Not About The Dog! puppy preschool training programs are uniquely designed to harness a puppies view of the big wide world and teach us as K9 Parents how to understand puppy behaviour and body language.
Why is puppy training important?
The first three months of your puppy’s 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.
Why Choose us?
We pride ourselves on our incredibly small classes with either 3 puppies to one instructor or 4 puppies and 2 instructors as it makes it a far better learning environment for the puppies and allows for individual attention and an all-important personal touch for each family.
- We welcome all children with open arms, encouraging them to join in for family-orientated fun training.
- We use science evidence based training methods that reward positive behaviour.
- It is our ultimate goal to make sure that you and your puppy get such thorough training – you’ll never need any again.
- We only use 2 trainers who you can read about here.
- We always strive to go the extra mile, aim higher and shoot further on our ongoing journey to fulfil and exceed your expectations – each and every time.
- 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.

If we hadn’t found Ziggy when we did we probably would have rehomed our crazy Labrador. Zigrid taught us K9 communication and how to be K9 parents. Zigrids sole focus was the welfare of our dogs and our sanity. Thankyou Zigrid!

We can’t recommend Zigrid and her team highly enough. Their dedication to helping us to understand our puppy and help him succeed has been a gift that will last a lifetime. Teaching us to read the dogs body language, offering social interaction sessions in a safe zone for the dogs, personal care and attention to difficulties we had, and offering practical and effective solutions that met with out belief in positive training. During the program we have made huge progress on sole attachment, being home alone, and interacting with other dogs. We recommend Zigrid to everyone and will be back with any future furry additions to our family.
