We really care about our puppies and want them to reach their full potential, we encourage this in multiple ways such as Lots of Human Socialization, Early Nuerological Stimulation and Sound Socializing. These help to create a confident dog who adapts easily to stress and new situations, they will adapt better in the home or in the field, this will make your new best friend healthier too!
We have a large family of 6 children and about 50+ (still growing) nieces and nephews, who along with the kid's friends, are over all the time playing with the puppies!!
Early Nuerological Stimulation
The U.S. Military in their canine program developed a program known to the public as the "Super Dog" Program. Based on years of research, the military learned that early neurological stimulation exercises could have important and lasting effects. Their studies confirmed that there are specific time periods early in life when neurological stimulation has optimum results. The first period involves a window of time that begins at the third day of life and lasts until the sixteenth day. It is believed that because this interval of time is a period of rapid neurological growth and development.
Five benefits of Early Nuerlogical Stimulation are:
- Improved cardio vascular performance (heart rate)
- Stronger heart beats
- Stronger adrenal glands
- More tolerance to stress
- Greater resistance to disease
