How Our American Pit Bull Puppies Are Raised
Our Pit Bull Puppies are Raised In-Home on an Advanced Care Curriculum that includes the following:
Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS)
We begin this process on our pit bull puppies at 3 days old. From day 3-16 is a critical development period for puppies. During this time we perform a number of exercises to build confidence, strengthen their heart and adrenal glands, and improve their stress tolerance.
Tactile Stimulation Between the Toes
Early Scent Introduction (ESI)
From day 3-16 we expose our puppies to a new scent. This process helps build awareness and confidence. This can also help us identify potential service or working dogs (diabetic alert, tracking or hunting, etc). Some of the scents that we introduce include lavender, pine, star anise, rabbit, tennis ball, and leather.
Gentle Handling/Daily Care
Daily care tasks include weight checks, collar changes, ENS, and ESI.
Daily Curriculum, Exposure, and Activities
Unlike most pit bull breeders, our puppies don't hang out in kennels all day. We introduce them to a variety of environments and situations to prepare them for their new homes. By exposing our puppies to a number of items and experiences at a young age, we are building their confidence and resilience.
