The aim of our work with puppies is to give them the best start in life possible. While puppies learn a lot from their mother and later on from dogs in a pack, we make sure our adults are great role models to puppies. Also, our family dynamic has a big impact on puppies. Did you know you can never ever later in a dog’s life replace the connection that a puppy builds with a human within the first weeks? Puppies have to meet different people before they develop fear (around week 5). Researches show that missed 1on1 connection with a human in this period of a puppy’s life can not be replaced later on. And we take it very seriously! Each puppy gets a daily dose of 1on1 time with us, full of handling and cuddling, as well from kids and visitors (of course always under our monitoring).
With carefully selected activities we encourage puppies to be independent, fast and high on drives. We make sure they are cool with different sounds (gunfire, thunder, fireworks, hairy dryer, airplane, vacuum cleaner…), familiar with people, kids and tolerant to other animals.
