Training and Socialization

Each puppy we sell receives socialization with children and adults, along with other dogs, to ensure a smooth transition into their new homes. We expose our puppies to early neurological stimulation during the first week after birth. This stimulation enhances the trainability of the puppy. In addition, our puppies are exposed to early crate training and lots of socialization.

We perform puppy temperament tests to help ensure that each puppy is ready for their new home. This testing can assess the puppy’s sociability, sensitivity, cooperativeness, energy level, trainability, intelligence, assertiveness, and stability. We help each family make their puppy choice based on the order of the reservation list.
