About Us

Hi, we are Matthew and Emily from Zigro Canine and we have a passion for helping owners maximise their relationship with their dogs via a balanced training methodology.  Balanced training utilises the four quadrants of operant conditioning, which is the method in which dogs (and humans) learn to behave.

Utilizing a positive reinforcement technique 95% of the time.

 

After rehoming a pandemic puppy we understand all too well the struggles that owners can face in the aftermath of coronavirus.

 

We spent countless hours and poured so much money into training, only for us to be be left tearing our hair out- nothing seemed to be working! Once we found a training style that worked for our dog everything changed, it was like a switch flicked and suddenly it all made sense! That is when we decided to start our journey into dog training so we could save people all that time, money and heartache.

 

Currently we are training in, canine behaviour, canine nutrition, pet first aid, dog walking and dog care/sitting. We specialise in guiding owners through all aspects of dog ownership and training.

There is no better feeling than when both dog and owner leave us happy, we want to help you lift that weight off your shoulders.

 

You are not in this alone!

I am so looking forward to working with Matt and Emily over the coming months ahead. During our
first meeting, they were both very knowledgeable, friendly, and relaxed. They made me feel totally
at ease and confident that they could help me work on neutrality and reactivity issues with Tarquin,
of which they identified the cause instantly. Watching Matt work with him was an absolute pleasure
and they gave me so much advice for our everyday life. I also like the way they understand the
specific needs of a breed and encourage you to work with the breed rather than against it. Within a
day our lead walking has improved tenfold and I can’t wait to build my relationship with my dogs
and advance my own knowledge with their help. Thank you both!
