Birth to 8 weeks Program



Some of the unique features of our Birth to 8-Weeks Puppy Program include:

Early Neurological Stimulation

All Global K9 Puppies leave our facility having gone through Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS). Early Neurological Stimulation is a process that introduces mild stresses to very young puppies in a controlled way. These stresses help stimulate the neurological system which improves the growth and development of the pup’s immune system, cardiovascular system, and stress tolerance. 


Research by the U.S. Military K9 Program indicates that the early days from 3-16 is the most critical window of time for rapid development and growth of the neurological system in puppies. When eyes and ears are closed and they are only able to suckle, smell and wiggle around, this stimulation increases the puppies awareness and encourages neurological growth and development. The program designed by the U.S. military is termed “Super Puppy” and gives our puppies a superior advantage in life.


Documented Benefits of Early Neurological Stimulation are:


  • Improved Cardiovascular Performance

  • Stronger Heart Beats

  • Superior Adrenal Glands

  • Higher Tolerance for Stress

  • Greater Resistance to Disease


Tests concluded that these “Super Puppies” were found to be more active and more exploratory than non-stimulated puppies. It was also noted that the non-stimulated puppies became extremely aroused, whined, and made many errors. The puppies that received ENS were less upset by test conditions, calmer, made fewer errors, and gave only an occasional distress sound when stressed. 


ENS is done for 2 consecutive weeks starting 3 days after the puppies are born. The process consists of 5 simple and harmless exercises, which are: 


  • Tactical Stimulation

  • Head Held Erect

  • Head Pointed Down

  • Supine Position (on Back)

  • Thermal Stimulation


Each exercise is done for 3-5 seconds. The entire process takes about 30 seconds. These 5 painless and simple exercises are done to prepare our pups for their life’s journey. Only 30 seconds a day for 2 weeks and we see a great improvement in their immune systems and stress tolerances.

Comprehensive Socialization Process

Global K9 puppies are introduced to age appropriate, safe social environments which increase their confidence from their 4th week of life. They meet people of all ages, have play sessions with young children, go on weekly overnight field trips with trainers, and are introduced to other dogs of all sizes, cats and sometimes horses. Our puppies begin and master our Puppy Obstacle Course before they leave our property. This course encourages the puppies to explore their surroundings, challenge themselves, and allows us to further predict which of our puppies are best suited as household pets and others future personal protection dogs.

Global K9 Goodie Package

Each puppy that completes our 8-week program will be sent home with some important items and fun goodies, which includes:


  • All Vital Puppy Paperwork and Records

  • Age Appropriate Immunizations 

  • Bag of High-Quality Puppy Food

  • Global K9 Play Toy

  • Pledge of Our Lifetime Support  


Our Super Puppy Program is highly recommended and is available to a limited number of new owners. Our ultimate goal is to provide our forever families with the best puppies ever. A well socialized puppy is not only healthier and happier, it makes for the perfect lifelong companion!
