Did you know that the same exact gene can express itself as an extremely negative trait or an extremely positive trait?
Did you know that mother dogs who receive affection during their pregnancy may give birth to more docile puppies?
Once a breeding is done, the puppy will be dealt a genetic hand. While there is nothing you can do to control this genetic lottery, you can make a difference in how those genes express themselves.
In this chapter, we take a look at how the pre-natal care and emotional support you give your mother dog can affect the ultimate health and personalities of her puppies.”
“Newborn puppies look like sleeping loaves of fur. But there’s furious activity going on under their little hoods – They double in body weight by 10 days and their brains undergo amazing changes. We visit with Dr. Carmen Battaglia and he shows us how to take advantage of this period by neurologically “jump starting” puppies when they’re between 3 – 13 days old.”
” Did you know that puppies have developmental periods,
and those developmental periods are defined by behavioral markers?
It’s important for both breeders and puppy owners to be able to
correctly identify these behavioral markers, because something that
is extremely beneficial one week, could be very harmful in the next week,
depending on what developmental period the puppy is in.
In this amazing week, we see the puppies transform from
deaf, blind, helpless loaves of fur, to real little puppies who can hear,
toddle, and play. You’ll get to take a peek at the funny and touching
moments when they realize there’s a whole world outside of themselves”
The puppies eyes & ears are sealed shut when they're born.
Their eyes open first usually around 12-15 days of age & their ears usually open shortly after. That period between the time their eyes and ears open is known as the Transitional period. This is because useful vision and hearing are thought to be necessary for puppies to enter the next period of development .
“Did you know that the critical socialization period in dogs begins at just three weeks old, and is over when the puppies are 12 weeks old?
What does it take to socialize a puppy? Socialization is more than just exposure – it’s a rich blend of skills, experiences, and enrichment.”
Did you know that prevention of common behavior problems begins when the puppies are just three weeks old?
Breeders and owners will find a wealth of information for avoiding conflict between adult dogs and puppies, enriching their puppies environment, early problem prevention protocols, and safe guidelines for socialization of puppies.”
Early Neurological Stimulation Exercises
Listed in order of preference, the handler starts with one pup and stimulates it using each of the five exercises. The handler completes the series from beginning to end before starting with the next pup. The handling of each pup once per day involves the following exercises:
These five exercises will produce neurological stimulation, none of which naturally occur during this early period of life. Experience shows that sometimes pups will resist these exercises, others will appear unconcerned. In either case a caution is offered to those who plan to use them. Do not repeat them more than once per day and do not extend the time beyond that recommended for each exercise. Over stimulation of the neurological system can have adverse and detrimental results. These exercises impact the neurological system by kicking it into action earlier than would be normally expected, the result being an increased capacity that later will help to make the difference in its performance. Those who play with their pups and routinely handle them should continue to do so because the neurological exercises are not substitutions for routine handling, play socialization or bonding.
Five benefits have been observed in canines that were exposed to the Bio Sensor stimulation exercises. The benefits noted were:
In tests of learning, stimulated pups were found to be more active and were more exploratory than their non- stimulated littermates over which they were dominant in competitive situations.
Secondary effects were also noted regarding test performance. In simple problem solving tests using detours in a maze, the non-stimulated pups became extremely aroused, whined a great deal, and made many errors. Their stimulated littermates were less disturbed or upset by test conditions and when comparisons were made, the stimulated littermates were more calm in the test environment, made fewer errors and gave only an occasional distress sound when stressed.
"In the first 12-weeks of a puppy's life you are endowed with an almost magical ability to shape his future."
We continue to expertly guide puppies with just the right amount of socialization. .
Fear Periods start. Fear periods are a normal part of puppy development, knowing how to deal with them, what to do, and most importantly what not to do, have lifelong implications for the adult dog and it’s family. With our expertise we are able to both recognize when a puppy is experiencing a fear period, to help them through the period, without allowing any trauma that might affect their temperament forever.
Training continues as does practice.
Exercise not only builds the puppies' bodies, it helps build their minds.But exercise that’s not appropriate for a puppy’s age and development can cause significant and irreversible damage. What would be a simple sprain in an adult dog could leave a puppy with a misshapen or shortened limb, so this is a subject that should be taken seriously. The Puppy Culture Exercise Booklet is an important guide to raising a puppy in a healthy and safe way. If every puppy owner would read and follow these guidelines, a huge number of behavioral issues and fractures could be avoided! Order yours today!

Our Puppies Are Raised with
Early Neurological Stimulation &
Puppy Culture Methods
We believe using the Puppy Culture Methods! Puppy Culture represents a gold standard in puppy rearing and early socialization. Puppy Culture is a program used by Breeders and Puppy owners, all over the world to improve the lives of their puppies and to limit behavioral issues by helping puppies to cope with and move past things that would otherwise cause issues as adults. We believe Puppy Culture is a valuable resource for caring and ethical breeders, along with new and old puppy owners, rescues, and is a fantastic add-on to attending a good puppy preschool. Breeders especially, by using Puppy Culture, can improve the lives of your puppies with just a few minutes each day and it dramatically makes a difference when comparing a puppy raised by Puppy Culture vs a puppy raised the alternative (non puppy culture) method. Less issues, more brain development, more bonding, more balance and the ability to adjust better, why wouldn't you
and ENS helps puppies be their best,
as puppies and adults.
Check out puppy culture for your self and learn why we have decided it is so important to implement in our program.
