We do a program called "Puppy Culture" with all of our pups! If you've never heard of it, you should definitely check it out!
Known in the military as "super dog" training, this early neurological stimulation program is based on scientific facts on how puppies learn. This training is based on three phases: Early Neurological Stimulation Phase, Socialization Phase, and the Enrichment Phase.
Early Neurological Stimulation Phase: This involves 5 exercises that will produce stimulations that do not occur in a puppy's natural environment early in life. Benefits associated with this phase that have been obseved include: Improved heart rate with stronger heart beats, stronger adrenal glands, greater resistance to disease and the ability to handle stressful situations more effectively.
Socialization Phase: This stage is critical for puppies. Dogs who spend time isolated during the period between 4-16 weeks tend to be chewers, diggers and more prone to hard-to-control behavior.
Enrichment Phase: Enriched puppies tend to be more inquisitive, active and easier to train as adults.

We perform this test to help us place our puppies in the most optimum situations. Puppies are tested and scored and the test covers the following dispositions:
1.) Social Attraction: The degree of social attraction a puppy has to people.
2.) Following: A puppy's willingness to follow a person.
3.) Restraint: The degree of a dominant or submissive personality and ease of handling in difficult situations.
4.) Social Dominance: The degree of social dominance by a person.
5.) Elevation: The degree of accepting dominance while in a position of no control. (example is at the Vet or a Groomer)
6.) Retrieving: A puppy's willingness to do something for you. (example: retrieving a ball)
7.) Touch Sensitivity: Sensitivity to Touch.
8.) Sound Sensitivity: Sensitivity to Sound. (example: thunderstorms)
9.) Sight Sensitivity: The degree of a response to a moving object (examples: bicycle, squirrel, children)
10.) Stability: The degree of startle response to strange objects.
Puppies will be DeWormed at 2, 4, 6, and 8 Weeks of age.
Puppies will be given their first 5-way vaccination at 6 Weeks of age.
We train all of our puppies to do something called “Manding” that comes straight from Puppy Culture! This is a great tool that you can continue after you take your puppy home that will go a long way in terms of a long, happy relationship with your dog!
