Before going home our puppies are exposed to gunfire, car rides, zip line, started on crate training, all sorts of surfaces such as tile, wood, glass, metal and more!, heights, different sights, different sounds using the Clix CD, porch stairs (puppies should not be climbing lots of steps all the time so we do not do large staircases until older), water as long as it's not frozen, woods, age appropriate agility equipment if the pups show they're ready to do this. On their free time they're allowed free run of the backyard where there's a combination or shade, grass trees & dirt. where they can play as long as they want with the mother and litter mates. This part is so important since there are so many things humans can not replicated in which the mother teaches the pups. We cover so many things that I'm sure I'm missing many things that aren't mentioned above!!! Below you will find a sampling of things we do with the pups.
