Lots of Obstacles to Spice Things Up!

I try to introduce several obstacles to the puppy play area each day now.

It builds confidence and adds a little variety to their life!

Also note their “play growling”. This is their way of asserting themselves within the pack. It never escalates but is awfully cute!

Face Shots And More!

Our boy, Casper


Buffy getting some Puppy Culture neurological practice.



Buffy’s face looks just like Casper except she has some sable on her right leg.

Agatha getting  Puppy Culture Neurological practice.


Glenda weighing in…254 grams.

Glenda…what a sweet face!

Glenda. Puppy Culture protocol. This is a VERY soft hold, I promise!

Agatha’s pretty markings.

Puppys turned 1 week old Sunday!

¬† We started our Puppy Culture Protocol a few days ago. Here the puppies are getting accustomed to being on their backs. It stimulates the nerves they do now normally use at this stage. They also spend a few seconds vertically both with heads up and heads down. Again, for the same reason. It also flushes their little brains with blood….and then drains it.


None of these movements are intended to replace the normal petting, stroking and hugging they get each day. These are also very important for reducing blood pressure and stress in the puppies.
