      Socializing your puppy begins at 3 weeks of age
Socializing puppies has traditionally been the responsibility of the new owner, but research shows that breeders should begin Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) exercises once daily from the 3rd to the 16th days after birth.  This period is believed to be a time of rapid neurological groth and development.  When performed correctly, ENS is believed to impact the neurological system by kicking it into action earlier than if not performed.  The result being an increased capacity that later will help to make a difference in the puppies performance.  We are able to accomplished this by having our puppies live in our residence with us and our other adult dogs.

Before your dog goes home, it will have been exposed to pheasant and duck wings, swimming, going for walks, loud noises to include thunder and lighting tactics. This will help your puppy adapt to a normal pet friendly environment, making the transition from our home to yours easier.
