Early Neurological Testing

These exercises start at 3 days old and go to 14 days old. The result being an increased capacity that later will help to make the difference in pup's performance.

Five benefits have been observed in canines that were exposed to the Bio Sensor stimulation exercises:

1. Improved cardio vascular performance (heart rate)

2. Stronger heart beats,

3. Stronger adrenal glands,

4. More tolerance to stress

5. Greater resistance to disease

In tests of learning, stimulated pups were found to be more active and were more exploratory than their non- stimulated littermates over which they were dominant in competitive situations.

For a more detailed explanation of the methods of Early Neurological Testing that I use on my puppies, and the benefits, please visit this article written by Dr. Carmen L. Battaglia.

I also implement from 3 to 14 days old, Dr. Gayle Watkins (Avidog) scenting exercises. Pups are introduced to a different scent on a daily basis: such as coffee, lemons, peanut butter…etc. this daily scenting exercise has been shown to produce adult dogs with exceptional scenting ability.
