How We Raise Our Pups
We use Training and Working Dogs For Quiet Confident Control of Stock by Scott Lithgow as our main guide to raising pups. We also follow elements of the "Puppy Culture" method of early puppy training techniques for confidence building and socialization. Additionally we add/change training elements based off personal experience. My pups start training and imprinting from birth with "super puppy" training protocol. As they get older they are constantly given more socialization, desensitization, and opportunities to overcome new challenges. They start basic housetraining, explore new places, hear and see a variety of stimuli. We use both positive and negative reinforcement in training our dogs.

"Lex has already begun proving his worth as a farm dog. I was doing chores in the "bunny barn", and suddenly I heard Lex barking excitedly. He hadn't done much barking at all before, so I went to find out what was up. One of our goats had gotten loose and had her head buried in the feed bin. At first, I couldn't believe that Lex had perceived that this was indeed something to get upset over, but sure enough, as soon as I got hold of the goat and put her back in her pen, he settled right back to playing and exploring. Such a terrifically smart pup! And handsome to boot! He is bright-eyed and bushy-tailed! He is always ready to lend a hand and tag along; he helps me move the goats and isn't at all deterred by grumpy goats. He loves to learn new tricks and has a happy, clownish personality."- Shannon in GA
