Puppy Development

We raise our puppies using methods recommended by Carmen Battaglia (check out http://www.breedingbetterdogs.com)  This includes stressful stimuli starting at 2 weeks of age to enhance the pups ability to recover from stress.  We follow How to Raise a Puppy You can Live With by Clarice Rutherford.  We recommend this book for prospective puppy buyers.  We also recommend Before You Get Your Puppy by Ian Dunbar and After You Get Your Puppy by the same author.

Additional good reads are:The Art of Raising a Puppy by Monks of New Skete; Another Piece Of The Puzzle: Puppy Development Edited By Pat Hastings and Erin Ann Rouse
