Santa Paw’s Lil’ Helpers – Pups are meeting new families and settling in to new routines.  We intentionally work on sensory conditioning for pups daily, and are blessed by their sweetness, kisses, & playfulness. Pups live in our home, part of our daily routines. Our program produces exceptional pups, trainable, & devoted.  Pups have variety of indoor activities, sensory exposures with textures, sounds, daily smells, supervised playtime, and restful naps. Pups also have brief outdoor adventures, which focuses on intro to potty training and more sensory which help pups adjust and transition to daily changes or travels with their new families. Pups from our program are more trainable, attentive, highly social and more confident because of our intentional new beginnings. The past few weeks of Outdoor Pup Fun Camp stimulation included short follow me adventures, recalls while pups distracted, blue tarp that flaps in wind, agility walk on board shortened to 4″, umbrellas, different size balls, rotated toys, and short supervised play with adult dog. We also continue to work with pups on very short sits and watch me, recalls always, and happy reinforcements. Always keep it fun and success driven. Pups received new collars recently and transitioning nicely, and beginning intro to gentle light leash work this week. Pups received physicals, 1st vaccines, dewormings and overall handling from more people.  Vet said “Pups are happy, healthy and well socialized.” Pups are having time of their life with fun Pup Camp activities as we continue preparing pups for best lives in amazing new homes.

Posted below are pic and short video examples of past litter in 2020.  The development and progress of weekly stages of my program in socialization, early training, and puppy culture techniques blended with variety of positive experiences.  

     Our pups final week is packed with vet appt, vaccine booster, lots of van travels, hands on puppy evaluations, increased outside potty and play times, new toys and more new positive experiences, continued baseline training for recalling, positive puppy manners, and light intro to walking on leashes.  Pups have been raised in our home, planned, using Puppy Culture combined with Super Dog ENS and my own enrichments. These intentional techniques and enrichments bless pups with future optimal life – physically and emotionally, because the techniques nuture improved cardio performance, adrenal gland strength, ability to transition quicker (tolerance to stress), and improves resistances to diseases.  

     Pups have also learn introductions to short stay in wire crates, bathing, having experienced several baths, light grooming, weekly manis/pedis on nails, handled and loved during their stay, and countless new learning moments. By 8 weeks, they are race car speedy, leaping, and jumping while playing. Pups know how to exit our home and race from several rooms to front door for outside potty and free play. Pups are friendly, curious, trusting, intelligent, beautiful and much loved!

     Pups have had a blast with tunnels – longer green tunnel and short red tunnel and gain confidence with slight elevations with agility walk on board and paws on rubber circus bowls. Pups play and tussle, greet us eagerly, trying to climb legs or crawl into laps, and offer lots of puppy licks and kisses.  Pups outside journeys keep expanding on their sensory developments – smell/sight/hearing/touch/taste. These pups are a really nice bunch – litter! I am blessed to watch their development and progress.   11/22/2020

     Our puppies are from exceptional and proven parent dogs, that are health cleared and OFA’d, CHIC Certified, versatile, and multi-titled.  Our pups are raised in our home with our family with Puppy Culture beginnings from birth complimented with enrichments and own techniques. Daily activities in our home introduces pups to many smells, lights, sounds, textures, bedtime and morning routines…all which strongly benefit the pups’ future transitions with your family, higher intelligence with training, and quality of life.

     Around 4 – 5 weeks, we begin to make brief outside field trips (potty breaks).  These short field trips are supervised and extremely important for continued development of pups gross motor and cognitive learning.  There are many stimulations, physical senses and emotional, physical movements that are foundational for the pup becoming best future fur friend pet or show/performance prospect.  Exposing pups to sun, wind, textures from warm/cold pavement, patio, deck, puddle of water, dirt, leaves, grass, rocks, flowers, scents/smells etc., are essential baselines.  We purposely invest this extra time and education in our “Puppy Camp” that create positive “1st moments” that fosters strong beginnings of self-confidence and new opportunities with ease.

     Our pups receive basic grooming during their stay at MissionRidgeMinis which includes baths, nail trims, and light brushing. These extra moments, emphasis on details, hands on care, and experiences help prepare them for best futures.

     We make strong progress with started housebreaking training, light crate training and basic puppy manners. We also do light introduction with leash and collars in the final stages of “Puppy Camp.”  Our efforts are intentional, positive, and fun! Results of our training, care, and love are demonstrated by our pups actions in knowing recall at a young age and their overall sweet dispositions. These are foundational for future obedience, training, and happy homes.  Our pups additionally have opportunities for brief car trips which helps pups adjust to motion and prevent future car sickness.

          We do our best to provide strong foundations and extra emphasis on details allow pups to achieve optimal potential in your home.  We start with exceptional and proven parents, invest in their proper health clearances, on going training, and stay current in education.  All of these details are important in providing excellence.  

     Please contact me to learn more about pup possibilities.  Be blessed, be healthy, and be hopeful! Julie Kramer  2 Corinthians 9:8
