We are committed to breeding excellent goldendoodles who are the best possible representation of the desired traits of their breed. Therefore, we are practicing Early Neurological Stimulation with each of the puppies.
This is a scientifically-backed series of exercises that is used by the United States military as well as many breeders of service dogs. Basically, it is a series of exercises conducted each day that helps their minds kick into gear at an earlier age. Puppies who do these exercises are trained more easily and at a younger age, and are more social. They grow into adult dogs who are more resilient (meaning they experience less distress in stressful situations), and are healthier overall. (Read more about the science behind this method here.)
