Aglow Standards is proud to offer such an exceptional program to raise our litters! As a professional and conscientious breeder, I strive to provide our puppies with an enriched environment as this has been proven to develop a more confident and easily trained dog. Our goal is to set each puppy up for success. I truly feel that Puppy Culture takes that a step further. For me it was an obvious decision to add this invaluable tool to my program to further our puppy's development and well-being. I understand how important early socialization is and this starts with a committed breeder. As a new puppy owner, you will take home a puppy who is more confident, outgoing and will adjust quickly to new situations. We are one of the very few standard poodle breeders who have implemented this program. I encourage you to visit the Puppy Culture website https://www.puppyculture.com to learn more. I have seen these benefits first hand in my previous litters. Obviously it takes more time to raise a litter using these methods, but as a committed standard poodle breeder, I feel it is 100% worth the effort!
Puppy Culture represents the gold standard in puppy rearing and early socialization. Puppy Culture is a program used by breeders and puppy owners all over the world to improve the lives of their puppies and to limit behavioral issues. This is done by helping puppies to cope with and move past things that would otherwise cause issues as adults. I believe Puppy Culture is a valuable resource for caring and ethical breeders, along with new and old puppy owners. Breeders especially, by using Puppy Culture, can improve the future lives of their puppies and it dramatically makes a difference when comparing a puppy raised by Puppy Culture vs a puppy raised the alternative (non Puppy Culture) method. Less issues, more brain development, more bonding, more balance and the ability to adjust better are just some of the benefits.
Early Neurological Stimulation Exercises-
I begin ENS on the day following the tail dock/dewclaw removal that is done on Day 2.
Listed in order, I start with one pup and stimulate it using each of the five exercises. I complete the series from beginning to end before starting with the next pup. This specific handling of each pup once per day involves the following exercises:
These five exercises will produce neurological stimulation, none of which naturally occur during this early period of life. Experience shows that sometimes pups will resist these exercises, others will appear unconcerned. These exercises impact the neurological system by kicking it into action earlier than would be normally expected, the result being an increased capacity that later will help to make the difference in its performance. These neurological exercises are not substitutions for routine handling, play socialization or bonding---that is done as well.
Five benefits have been observed in canines that were exposed to the Bio Sensor stimulation exercises. The benefits noted were:
In tests of learning, stimulated pups were found to be more active and were more exploratory than their non- stimulated littermates over which they were dominant in competitive situations. Secondary effects were also noted regarding test performance. In simple problem solving tests using detours in a maze, the non-stimulated pups became extremely aroused, whined a great deal, and made many errors. Their stimulated littermates were less disturbed or upset by test conditions and when comparisons were made, the stimulated littermates were more calm in the test environment, made fewer errors and gave only an occasional distress sound when stressed.
Training continues as does practice.
