We believe that the steps breeders take early in their puppies' lives has an incredible effect on the confident, curious, and happy dogs they will become. To ensure that our puppies get the best start possible, we follow the Puppy Culture program.
What is Puppy Culture?
Puppy Culture is a scientifically-based enrichment program designed to support puppy development across the critical first 12 weeks of their lives. Through a variety of activities, training games, and socialization opportunities, we work hard to foster their problem-solving abilities, increase their resilience, and prepare them for life in our busy, modern world.
How does Puppy Culture benefit new owners?
Puppy Culture protocols are designed to help reduce common issues like noise reactivity, separation anxiety, and resource guarding behaviours. The program's emphasis on problem-solving and enrichment also encourages development of curious, confident puppies who are excited about new challenges. By the time puppies leave our home, they have not only learned basic behaviours, they have learned how to learn--making it easier for new owners to begin training their puppies as soon as they arrive in their new homes.
Because companion puppies generally leave before 12 weeks of age, we strongly encourage new owners to continue the foundation work we have done. Click the link at right to learn more about how you can order the Puppy Culture video in either streaming video or DVD format.
