Our unique puppy preschool training program is designed as a lifestyle program to set you and your puppy up for a lifetime of success. This program harnesses a puppies view of the big wide world and teaches K9 Parents how to understand puppy behaviour, body language and social skills.
This 8-week puppy preschool training program is designed to successfully set you up with your puppy to develop the best relationship possible, that is based on trust, respect, and clear communication. You will learn everything you need to know in teaching and guiding your puppy in everyday life situations. Puppies will learn how to interact and play appropriately with other dogs and learn how to be a polite puppy from an early age in everyday life situations. We use science evidence based training methods that reward positive behaviour. This training program is a complete program and no other training should ever be required!

We hold our first five puppy preschool classes indoors in Brisbane's Southside suburb Wishart, providing your pup with a safe, clean and comfortable environment. Your 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.
"If we hadn’t found Zigrid when we did we probably would have rehomed our crazy Labrador. Zigrid taught us K9 communication and how to be K9 parents. Zigrid’s 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."
