Puppy 'FUN'damentals

Our puppy program is structured to maximize the first eight weeks of life to encourage bold, yet balanced puppies that are curious, adventurous, and ready to transition into their new homes. All of our puppies go through ENS (Early Neurological Stimulation), ESI (Early Scent Introduction), sound introductions – including gun fire, socialization, manding, litter training, crate training, water introduction, learning through play, and more, utilizing the litter and the group play to expose them to as many new things as we can while making new experiences fun. We know the importance of challenging them mentally to build
confidence, being sure to introduce them to things as they are ready, and
taking note of their individual needs. We take the puppy process very seriously, from the breed pairing until the time they go home with you. We always focus on nature AND nurture here at BCK, so you can be rest assured, your family’s new addition has a great foundation for life.
