Our puppies undergo Early Neurological Stimulation from 3-16 days of age. Also known as the "Super Dog" Program. A proven method that helps develop pups that are able to problem solve, cope, and socialize better.
Early Neurological Stimulation for Puppies
At Mountain Laurel Goldens is our ultimate goal is to provide our forever families with the best puppies possible. This means introducing our puppies from day 3 to day 16 countless sounds, volumes, animals, stimulations, experiences and fun! A well socialized puppy is not only healthier and happier!
From research we have included below along with the results from years of studies by the U.S. Military Canine Program, we know that the interval of time between day 3 and 16 is the most crucial window of time for the rapid development and growth of the neurological system in puppies. For these first few days, these very young puppies’ eyes are closed and they are only able to suck, smell, and crawl. To encourage our puppies neurological growth and development, we follow a program created by the military called “Bio-Sensor” or later termed “Super Puppy” training which according to studies will give dogs a superior advantage in life.
Documented Benefits of Early Neurological Stimulation:
*Improved cardio vascular performance
*Stronger heart beats
*Stronger adrenal glands
*More tolerance to stress
*Greater resistance to disease
Tests proved these “Super Puppies” were found to be more active and more exploratory than non-stimulated puppies. It was also noted that the non-stimulated pups became extremely aroused, whined, and made many errors. The puppies that received ENS were less upset by test conditions. They found the ENS puppies were calmer, made fewer errors and gave only an occasional distress sound when stressed.
From day 3 – 16 We follow the Bio Sensor Workout, which includes the following 5 exercises for 3-5 seconds. These exercises will produce neurological stimulations, none of which naturally occur during this early period of life.
*Tactical stimulation (between toes)
*Head held erect
*Head pointed down
*Supine Position (on back)
*Groomed weekly( includes bathing, blow drying, brushing and nail trimming)
*Introduction to the crate
(Starting with hourly crate time, then follows with nightly bed time routines in crate)
*Beginning Potty training
*Started on a Potty Schedule
*Introduction to riding in vehicle
*Continued handling skills daily
*Walking on leash and inside home with mild distractions
