THE SERVICE DOG PRESCHOOL!
Our goal on Papa's Farm is to raise puppies that are ready to provide your family years of enjoyment. According to an article by the AKC,
"Puppy Socialization Begins with the Breeder."
You can read the article here
We follow service dog protocols and practices recommended by Puppy Culture to give our puppies an incredible head start on proper behavior, communication, and training before they go home!
If Dr. Spock and Maria Montessori worked together to design a breeding program, I believe it would resemble something like our program. Scroll through our FB posts and the pictures below to see how we have raised previous litters so you'll know what to expect with your puppy.
-being raised in our living room with people around 24/7 for the first 6 weeks.
-multiple surfaces to walk on
-socialization with other dogs
-Early Neurological Stimulation exercises from day 3-14
-The Canine Noise Phobia program designed to desensitize puppies to various noises that dogs often fear
-toys - lots of toys!!!
-barrier challenge, box trick, and manding (Puppy Culture Protocols)
-individual attention provided by myself and my children
-we dress up to expose them to different styles
-regular handling of paws, ears, and tail
-at least 3 car rides before they come home
-and many many more experiences!!!

One of the best things you can do for your new best friend is invest in training! I highly recommend Baxter and Bella puppy training! The program is entirely online. You can watch and rewatch lessons, as a family, so everyone in the household is on the same page. There are even checklists you can print out! No need to wait to start training until he is fully vaccinated like you would if you went to a class. Baxter and Bella even includes lesson to work through before you bring your new puppy home! Also one low payment gets you lifetime support. With my breeder discount, the cost of the program is just under $180!! Just use the code PAPAS when you are checking out!! It will be one of the best things you buy your new puppy!
