At SPFL we choose to keep puppies to 10 weeks, per the Puppy Culture Protocol. It is a lot more work, time, expense and poop but we have seen how these two weeks and the additional Puppy Culture exercises give pups the absolute best start.
This next one consists of 10 Modules. I am very happy to have completed this course in addition to Puppy Culture! I carefully consider all perspectives and compare it to my own philosophy for ‘fit’.
AND….there are opportunities for puppy buyers to get training too!!!
