Our experts have over 30 years of experience in identifying the traits that go a long way in producing a puppy that will result in good health, solid nerves, balanced drives and temperament. This curated selection process provides us all the advantages needed to mold and shape our litters into super puppies.
Birth to 8 weeks Program
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:
Head Held Erect
Head Pointed Down
Supine Position (on Back)
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.

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

HOW DOES THE SUPER PUPPY PROGRAM WORK?
There are stages of development for your puppy from birth to two years old. Generally, these stages are:
Neonatal stage and dependence on mother dog: birth to 2 weeks
Transitional stage and development of senses and weaning: 2-4 weeks
Training, vaccinations and socialization: 3-16 weeks
Establishing hierarchy within the group: 4-6 months
Adolescent stage and continued training and socialization: 6-12 months
Social maturity and ongoing training: 1-2 years
What your puppy learns in the first 16 weeks of life will be seen in adulthood. Their attention spans are short, so many training lessons throughout each day are necessary to permanently ingrain the positive behaviors we want in our adult dogs. It is also the timeframe to learn your individual puppy’s temperament and personality, which allows us to customize our training methods that are best for your dog.
We gradually introduce your puppy to new sights, smells, textures, environments, people, animals and challenges. Our philosophy is to slowly increase your puppy’s training experiences to include positive feedback, which are rewarded with high value treats, tasty and nutritious food, fun puppy toys, and lots of love and affection.
Our training campus is a safe home and kennel setting so your puppy learns to trust people and look to their caregivers for guidance no matter what environment they are in. Our trainers manage the entirety of your puppy’s living and training environment 24/7 so they are not left to their own vices, forming bad habits or becoming apprehensive. We keep your puppy current on age-appropriate immunizations based on American Veterinary Medical Association protocol.
Our Super Puppy Program keeps you connected with your pup and engaged in the process in various ways, including:
videos and photos we send of your puppy
weekly phone call with news and updates
lifelong support via email, instant messaging, text and phone call.
