#1 German Shepherd Puppies
Puppy socialization starts during the first weeks of life.
Birth to 10 weeks:
Our whelping process includes a wide range of social, physical and mental conditioning work with each of our German Shepherd puppies.
In the first weeks of life, this includes Early Neurological Stimulation or ENS. ENS is a combination of 5 simple and low stress exercises done once a day between days 3 - 16 to encourage the neurological system to rebound and process stress faster and better, to grow and develop the puppies immune system and cardiovascular system allowing our dogs to live their fullest life.
We work on noise and environmental conditioning with each and every puppy. We systematically introduce them to new surface types including hardwood floors, tile flooring, decks, concrete, gravel, carpet, etc so they are comfortable and confident on all surfaces. This includes introducing them to different areas of our home and our outdoor world. We work to provide you with the most well rounded, empowered and resilient puppies you could desire. Another aspect of conditioning we do is introducing our puppies to obnoxious noises while they are eating. When we introduce meal times, we cue Alexa to play "fire truck sirens", "firework sounds", etc or we vacuum. Because we are pairing these noises with meal time, the noises are being conditioned to create positive emotions in our pups and avoiding the creation of fear responses. We are huge proponents of pairing food with experience to make every experience a positive experience.
We also provide a wealth of enrichment in our puppy play areas including a variety of toys, surface types, pet cots, igloos with cedar shavings, fitness balance boards and more.
We also provide an experience that includes many of the aspects of the Puppy Culture program. A personal favorite of mine is puppy manding. This is shaping the puppies that they get food and attention for 'demanding' by doing the things we want. I choose to shape all my puppies to mand by sitting calmly when greeting people. Sitting = attention and rewards. We encourage you to continue this with your new puppy.
We play with and discover the drive level of each puppy.
Our children are heavily involved in this process and provide a very valuable social experience for each puppy. We observe and evaluate each puppy’s motivation and personality to help match the puppy to a home that will best suit their character.
