Imprinting is a type of learning that happens early in a dog’s life before training. Imprinting starts at 6 weeks old until 6 months old. Training builds off the imprinting. This is universal dog practice. Imprinting them from early age provides increased confidence and decreased natural fears. Its also just fun for them. This decreases anxieties for the life of the dog. Our imprinting practices and puppy gauntlets are the key to the betterment of the breed. It allows us to understand each pup in depth. Thier drives, aptitudes, natural fears, attitudes, and abilities. This allows us to always breed the best to the best. But most importantly, it allows us to place pups in the best fitting homes and that is why we have extremely high client satisfaction.

Benefits of Imprinting Puppies
Imprinting causes these puppies to think and overcome challenges, making them better dogs for you. It will develop greater security, confidence, and in turn, reduce fear and anxiety. These skills lead to a more balanced dog.
By challenging puppies at an early age, they learn they are capable of much more. When they overcome these obstacles unscathed, they become more confident and less susceptible to outside stressors. Not much different from child development.
