Extra Training

Priceless Socialization

​​
​​A well socialized puppy is not only healthier and happier; it makes for the perfect companion!  Our puppies also get plently of priceless socialization while they are hand-raised at our home being handled by us and our young children many times throughout the day.  The puppies will naturally be exposed to all the smells, sounds and activities that occur around a busy household to help prepare them for your home.

Depending on season, our puppies get to play in the yard with our family, go on car rides, have pool parties in the baby pool, play in the snow, leaves, etc.  and they will be exposed to a variety of things and places to help make them easy-going no matter where you take them or what they are surrounded by.


Creating "Super Dogs"

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Our ultimate goal is to provide our forever families with the best puppies possible. ​​​This means introducing our puppies from day three to countless sounds, volumes, textures, animals, stimulations, experiences and fun! 

From research we have included here, along with the results from years of studies by the U.S. Military Canine Program, we know that the interval of time between day 3 and 16 is the most crucial window of time for the rapid development and growth of the neurological system in puppies.

For these first few days, these very young puppies’ eyes are closed and they are only able to suck, smell, and crawl. 



​​

To encourage our puppies neurological growth and development, we follow a program created by the military called “Bio-Sensor” or later termed “Super Dog” training which according to studies will give dogs a superior advantage in life.


Documented Benefits​​​

  • Improved cardio vascular performance
  • Stronger heart beats
  • Stronger adrenal glands
  • More tolerance to stress
  • Greater resistance to disease
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Tests proved these “Super Dogs” were found to be more active and more exploratory than non-stimulated puppies. It was also noted that the non-stimulated pups became extremely aroused, whined, and made many errors.

The puppies that received Early Neurological Stimulation were less upset by test conditions. They found the early neurologically stimulated puppies were calmer, made fewer errors and gave only an occasional distress sound when stressed.


Sound Socialization

To create calm and confident dogs, we prepare our puppies for everyday life by conditioning them to many sounds during their most critical growing period starting at just three weeks of age.  

They will be exposed to over 126 individual sounds known to trigger dogs, multiple times, gradually up to the volume they would hear them in real life.  Including, but not limited to the sounds of thunderstorms, gunshots & fireworks, things around the house, infants crying & children playing/screaming, machines & tools, sirens/traffic & trains, vet's office, groomers, kennels, day camps, and small & large airports.

So if you choose to have us ship your puppy to you, before they travel, they will have been exposed to an array of airport sounds so that they can enjoy a more relaxed, easy journey.

We want to give your puppy every possible advantage!
