Puppy Culture and Bio Sensory Training

Puppy Culture

Our Sire’s Mom, Lynn Sanders, out of Selma, AL. recommended Jane Killion's, Puppy Culture to me shortly after we bred Scarlett and Handsome.  Jane demonstrates just how to present a well socialized, happy puppy to the world.

I took her advise and got it right away.  I noticed a difference in Scarlett and Rhett both in just a few months of this training program. I also knew that the decision to breed Scarlett came with major responsibilities.  If I was going to breed and train puppies, I wanted to be the best that I could be.  I want to send home happy, secure and easy to train dogs.  Luckily for us, we happen to choose a breed that is considered among the smartest and easiest to train among dogs in the world!  I highly recommend this collection of CDs.  What seems like common sense was demonstrated for us through this program and it is done in a fun way.

We have started training already.  Follow us on our blog and watch a puppy learn that the best way to get your attention is to SIT; we are working on it.  Both Christopher and I believe that front loading these beautiful Red Standard Poodles with a secure loving nature will guarantee a lovely introduction to your home.  I will not promise a trick preforming, completely potty-trained, perfectly mannered dog.  I will say that no effort will be spared to see that you get the very best out there.

Bio Sensory Training for Dogs

Early Socialization

The U.S. Military developed a program in the 1970's called "Bio Sensor." (Became publicly known and is often referred to as the "Super Dog" Program or Bio-Sensory Training for Dogs.) The program was developed to improve the performance of dogs used for military purposes.

The basic premise of the program is that early neurological stimulation exercises could affect the performance of the dog. The Army's research revealed that early stimulation of the puppy from the 3rd day through the 16th day influence rapid neurological growth and development. Bio-Sensory Training for Dogs improves the development of the puppy's neurological systems by early stimulation and stress.

 

Five benefits have been observed in dogs that were exposed to the Bio Sensor stimulation exercises:

- Improved Cardiovascular Performance,

- Stronger Heart Beats,

- Stronger Adrenal Glands,

- More Tolerance to Stress, and

- Greater Resistance to Disease.

 

The Bio Sensor method is a well-documented puppy development tool. Many puppies bred for field, security, and guide work are introduced to the Bio Sensor Program as part of their development.

At Paradise Found we incorporate the Bio-Sensor or Super Dog Program into our early development program. Teaching our puppies to relax and trust is essential to your experience with them.  Within hours of birth these exercises were started and will continue until you take them home.

Below are the five Bio Sensor exercises designed to stimulate the neurological system of the puppy. We put each puppy through these 2 times per day.  This way we know each puppy has received every bit of attention necessary to present an extraordinary puppy to you.

1. TACTILE STIMULATION - Hold the puppy in one hand, the handler gently stimulates (tickles) the pup between the toes on any one foot using a Q-tip. It is not necessary to see that the pup is feeling the tickle.
Time of stimulation 3 - 5 seconds.

2. HEAD HELD ERECT - Using both hands, the pup is held perpendicular to the ground, (straight up), so that its head is directly above its tail. This is an upwards position.
Time of stimulation 3 - 5 seconds.

3. HEAD POINTED DOWN - Hold the puppy firmly with both hands the head is reversed and is pointed downward so that it is pointing towards the ground.
Time of stimulation 3 - 5 seconds.

4. SUPINE POSITION - Hold the puppy so that its back is resting in the palm of both hands with its muzzle facing the ceiling. The pup while on its back is allowed to sleep struggle.

Time of stimulation 3-5 seconds.

5. THERMAL STIMULATION - Use a damp towel that has been cooled in a refrigerator for at least five minutes. Place the pup on the towel, feet down. Do not restrain it from moving.

Time of stimulation 3-5 seconds.
