Making Hearts Happy – Dawson Creek’s Puppy Cultural Protocol

Dawson Creek is very happy to share our Puppy Culture Protocol with you. At Dawson Creek we feel our puppy protocol is a very important part of our program. We follow the Puppy Culture Program for Breeders and feel it is a major asset in the development of our puppies. Our puppy cultural protocol begins before the puppies arrive and continues throughout their stay at Dawson Creek. However, most importantly, socialization does not end at Dawson Creek for our puppies. We provide strategies and suggestions to help our customers continue the puppy socialization process at home where our Dawson Creek puppies can strive and flourish in their new homes.

Dawsoen Creek Labradoodles - Puppy Culture

We would like to share with you a quick glance of what our puppy cultural protocol involves:

  • From the moment of arrival, we begin touching and stroking our puppies as much as possible. This includes weighing, helping the baby’s nurse, and just the comfort of a very gentle human touch. Daily cuddle sessions begin during the puppies first stage of life.
  • Days three through 16 are very important. During this stage we provide early neurological stimulation that includes placing the puppy in the palm of your hand and holding the puppy in a variety of positions. Daily cuddle sessions continue.
  • A very exciting and precious time at Dawson Creek for us is the Transitional Period. During this period the puppies are two to three weeks old. The puppies began opening their eyes and moving around more frequently in the whelping box. When the puppy’s eyes open, they begin trying to stand up and toddle around. The opening of their eyes and the toddling around are the first milestones that we record. Touching. snuggling, and cuddle sessions occur daily with the entire family. Towards the end of the Transitional Period the puppies begin to move around with more stability. This is when we began providing the puppies with large squeaky crackle toys to get the startle -recover – curiosity exploration affect. Also, during this period we add a potty area to our whelping box, begin carrying the puppies to short visits to new rooms in the household, and allowing them to explore outside of the whelping box on a variety of textured quilts, blankets, and pads. During this stage the puppies are wormed for the first time and their toenails are clipped.
  • As the puppies continue to grow stronger, they reach the Socialization Period. During this stage the puppies are approximately three to four weeks old. We continue daily cuddling, snuggling, and touching sessions. Also, new toys and sounds are being introduced on- a -daily- basis. The puppies continue to explore new rooms and areas of the house and begin having Short Pup visits with outside family members. During this stage the puppies are being introduced to water and mush.
  • Socialization becomes a little more advanced at week five. The puppies are removed from the nursery and transferred to the weaning pin. Here they experience a variety of new toys, a potty area, crates, and a play pin. The play pin is full of tunnels, balls, toys, things to climb on, and variety of chew toys. During this time the outside world is viewed for the first time. This opens a new world of experiences with many out- door activities. The puppies motor skills have developed very well. Therefore, they are free to run, jump, and play with their siblings. Also, during this time the puppies are being exposed to new training experiences with a clicker. They are rewarded for good behavior such as coming when called, following, sitting on the grooming table, manding (sitting with the bottom on the ground and focusing on the trainer). The puppies are taking treats from the trainer’s hand and experiencing the pickup-interrupt-and treat activity. They receive their first visit from the vet and are receiving softened dog food mixed in with their mush. Snuggling, touching, and daily cuddling sessions continue daily.
  • Socialization continues as the puppies move to weeks seven and eight. They are introduced to individual crates and their take home snuggle puppy. Also, the puppies are now taking potty breaks after meals, being exposed to very shallow water, and being introduced to a leash on a sniff and stroll adventure. Cuddling and snuggling session are still occurring daily. The puppies have now transitioned to dry dog food, been weaned from mom, and will receive another vet visit soon. As the puppies prepare to transition to their new homes Dawson Creek is gathering materials to send home with the new puppy parents where socialization will continue, and our puppies will thrive at their new homes. We are very proud to have joined the Puppy Culture Protocol for Breeders. We feel this has become an important asset to our program.
