All dogs have a very narrow window of time to learn that the world is a safe and wonderful place. During this “critical period” (3-18 weeks), they must have positive experiences with all the things they may encounter as an adult, otherwise, they can develop fear and aggression-based problems later in life.

The puppy foundations program will give you the tools necessary to ensure that we do everything we can to raise a confident puppy who loves people and other animals, doesn’t hurt others with his teeth, and enjoys body handling!
