How We Set Your Puppy up for Success Before They Come Home

We raise healthy, happy, quality, attentive, intelligent, and sweet temperament dogs. Using ENS, puppy curriculum and Puppy Culture we are able to do just that with your future furbaby. 

Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS)

The first week of life we start ENS which stands for Early Neurological Stimulation. This is done individually with each puppy from the day after they are born until they are 14 days old. This helps to stimulate the neurological system which improves the growth and development of the pup’s immune system, cardiovascular system, and stress tolerance. The daily curriculum we use each day with the puppies creates a much stronger foundation for you when you bring them home! Those early stages of life are so so important. The only thing you have to do is continue following through with what’s been taught. We make this process very simple!

Bluegrass Bernedoodles

Much of what people consider problematic in their adult dogs develops due to fears, sometimes aggression, or even lack of focus. These often come down to a failure or omission within the first 12 weeks of a puppies life. This is why we are very strategic and very subjective in our daily actions with the pups with what we include and what we don’t include at certain weeks as the grow. We work on the Trinity of Communication with your puppy starting with games and specific rewards early on. Since we don’t speak BARK and they don’t speak TALK it’s important. One example is teaching them to mand. Manding is when a puppy sits and looks up at you to gain your attention verses jumping up on you.

Potty Training Prep

We work on potty training prep so that it is well under way when your furbaby comes home. It’s a process we start when puppies are just two weeks old. Starting in the whelping box with their mama, we provide a space for potty and a space for sleeping, nursing, and snuggling with mama. Note: We don’t like to use potty pads as they grow because they are soft like carpet and can be confusing for pups after they go home. Check out our Potty Training Your New Puppy blog post for more potty training tips and tricks!

Puppy Training Recommendation

Everyone wants a calm, well-mannered and better-behaved family pet. More often than not, families simply don't know how to achieve this, despite the reality that all new puppy parents become full-time dog trainers the day they bring home their furbaby.

In a sincere effort to provide our Bluegrass Families with proven training methods, materials, and other resources beneficial in becoming suitably educated, sufficiently prepared and successfully experienced in positive pet parenting, we have partnered with BAXTER and Bella Online Puppy School.

With 65 step-by-step lessons, over 100 how-to video demonstrations, printable charts & checklists and the training tips, tricks, tools, and techniques that lead to a successful puppy parenting you will be ready when your puppy comes home!
