Puppy Culture is a complete program of over 50 lessons from whelping box to new home that is scientifically proven to greatly improve outcomes for puppies! From early neurological stimulation, to aggression prevention, to potty training and leash walking, it's all here! Learn from the Puppy Culture team of top veterinary behaviorists, veterinarians, breeders, and dog trainers. This team of experts have bred, raised, and trained thousands of dogs. They make that vast experience available to you, broken down into clear instructions, in short chapters that are easy and fun to watch.
With step-by-step instructions on what to do at each critical juncture in the first 12 weeks of life, Puppy Culture is your guide to raising your puppies to be confident enrichment seekers, ready to take on life's challenges with joy and love to spare. Studies have shown that many common training techniques can actually increase aggression and problem behaviors, which can damage the human-animal bond. The Puppy Culture program will show you how to train your dog while enriching your bond with him, every step of the way.
From early neurological stimulation, to socialization, to emotional resiliency exercises, from problem prevention protocols, to training basic skills, you'll see the practical application and profound, sometimes almost unbelievable, results of this program. Although Puppy Culture focuses on the advantages of good rearing and socialization protocols in the first 12 weeks of puppy life, there's hours of instruction and advice that will be applicable to puppies of all ages. During the sensitive time of socialization, the puppy is as vulnerable to imprinting negative experiences as he is to imprinting good experiences. This means you need a good plan for socializing your puppy. The Puppy Culture team gives you a plan and guides you through the process.
You'll watch this DVD once for fun, and then over and over again as a reference. In the end, puppies teach us touching and funny lessons about life, relationships, and how doing just the right thing at the right time can change destiny for puppies and their owners. Viewers will come away with a new and clear understanding of puppies and how to raise them into our human world.
Most puppy training videos appear to have been shot in one weekend, using a few easy to train puppies. How do you know those training techniques really work in the long run? Unlike other films, Puppy Culture tracks one litter over three years, so you can see the true results of our program. You’ll see the puppies overcome real and varied behavior challenges and ultimately grow to gentle, well-behaved adult dogs.
