Apple'S Winter Pups
CHC Families Only
On this page I'll be sharing with you a bit more about the 8 weeks we have raising your pup!
I'll share pictures and videos from our day - to include enrichment protocols and puppy curriculum (Puppy Culture) we use to raise happy, confident, stable, well-loved, well-adjusted, enrichment seeking pups.
Many breeders claim to use science-based curriculum and protocols (Puppy Culture, BAB) as well as ENS but not many actually do. That is why I will be sharing here, with you (transparency).
"The proof is in the puppies". ~ Jane Lindquist (Puppy Culture).
Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS), January 12
ENS are specific handling and stimulation unlike normal handling. There are 5 excercises (as you'll see in the videos below):
1. Tactile stimulation.
2. Head held erect (count of 5).
3. Head poited down (count of 5).
4. Supine position (count of 5).
5. Thermal stimulation (count of 5).
These excercises do NOT take the place of normal love and attention (touching and stroking of our pups).
Scientific studies have shown that the results & benefits of ENS are:
🐾 Improved cardio vascular performance (heart rate)
🐾 Stronger heart beats
🐾 Stronger adrenal glands
🐾 More tolerance to stress
🐾 Greater resistance to disease
