Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) is a routine we have incorporated to raising our puppies as an ethical breeder. We expose puppies from days 3-16 to help aid with their development, resilience and coping mechanisms.
Early Neurological Stimulation exercises last about 3-5 seconds and consist of the following steps:
When raising puppies, socialization in early puppyhood is crucial to their development. We introduce our puppies to new people, animals, sites and sounds daily to ensure they are confident and ready to conquer the world with their new family.
We introduce our puppies to crate training. Crate training is so important for dogs of all ages and sizes. It is especially important for those breeds that get groomed frequently. You want your pup to feel safe and secure when dropped off at the groomer right? Crate training is the first step.
Because dogs are den animals, they do not like to potty where they sleep. We use this to teach them to potty in a specific area in our home. When they enter a new home, they will need to re learn the potty spot in your home, but due to our initial training, they will pick up on it quick!
Behavior and manners are so important when it comes to raising puppies. We want to reinforce desired behaviors now so when puppy comes homes to you, they have a basic understanding of what is expected of them.
We work on skills like sitting, eye contact, waiting patiently and more. It is important to remember, they are just babies and these are skills they are learning, so it will absolutely be something their new owner continues at home.
