Ensuring that your puppy’s genetic material is excellent is only the beginning. The physical and emotional health of the mother affects the health of the puppies. Since research has shown that puppies born to mothers who have received prenatal massage are more docile and enjoy being touched, we pamper our pregnant bitches with lots of affection and belly rubs. A puppy’s disposition to form deep and meaningful relationships begins before birth.
Early neurological stimulation (ENS) begins on day 3 and continues until day 16. Research shows that small fights and stress in appropriate small doses are actually good for puppies and help them grow into strong, healthy and balanced dogs. Benefits include higher stress tolerance, greater resistance to disease, a faster adrenal system, a higher heart rate and a stronger heartbeat. This is a gift a breeder can only give their puppies once during the 3-16 day window.
The beginning and end of each developmental stage is determined by behavioural characteristics, as each puppy is different and these times are only guidelines. The transition period begins when the puppy’s eyes open and ends when it is first startled by sounds.
Following the Puppy Culture protocol, the puppies now move to their new families. This gives them two weeks in this critical socialisation phase to adjust to their new family’s lifestyle and meet new people and experiences.
Conclusion: This is an incredible effort, but it is 100% worth it! If you adopt a puppy raised according to Puppy Culture (PC for short), you will be as grateful as all breeders after the programme.
