Early Neurological Stimulation

Windsong puppies are high achievers. We practice the Early Neurological Stimulation daily on all our puppies. The U.S. Military in their canine program developed a method that still serves as a guide to what works. In an effort to improve the performance of dogs used for military purposes, a program called "Bio Sensor" was developed. Later, it became 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.

Our babies are SMART!

-At 2 weeks old (yes 2 weeks!) we start potty training your puppy.  It is a natural instinct for the momma to push the pups off of their bedding to potty.  I split the whelping box in half and start using puppy pee pads at 2 weeks.  By 8 weeks my pups are puppy pad trained (and introduced to potty time in the grass) and it makes potty training at their new home so much easier!

-I start training with basic commands at 7 weeks.  By the time you take your puppy home he/she should know the command "sit" but you should continue to reinforce this knowledge and add additional commands.

 

The BEST for our Babies..

Our breeding program will now be including Puppy Culture. Puppy Culture is a curriculum for both dog breeders and puppy owners alike, dedicated to raising stable, mentally sound dogs. Our current puppies, as well as future litters, will be raised using Puppy Culture's protocols such as manding, resource guarding prevention, and biosensory exercises.

We highly encourage our puppy owners, present and future, to learn more about Puppy Culture and the benefits of positive reinforcement training.
