Puppy Culture for Puppy Owners

You may be asking yourself... the film's title is "the Powerful First TWELVE Weeks" of a puppy's life. Is this film really for me?

We get so many people with older (or younger) puppies asking us if Puppy Culture can help them that we compiled a list of Puppy Culture Frequently Asked Questions, as well as a Puppy Culture Essentials Playlist geared specifically towardPuppy Owners.

FAQs for Puppy Owners

My puppy is older than 12 weeks - is Puppy Culture for me?

The science based training and protocols in Puppy Culture are perfect for puppies of all ages. Even if though the DVD focuses on the first 12 weeks of a puppy's life, there are more than 30 lessons (outlined conveniently for you in the Puppy Culture Essentials Playlist for Puppy Owners) that are directed specifically to prospective puppy families that can be applied well after the 12 week mark. Plus, it's never too late to get off on the right foot!

My puppy is only 8 weeks old (or younger) - is Puppy Culture for me?

Not only is Puppy Culture for you, there is a special advantage to starting early with puppies. You'll see in the film that many of the lessons are demonstrated by  puppies as young as 4 weeks old, because puppies learn certain things fastest and most easily in the first 12 weeks of life.

Why are some of the lessons demonstrated by 4 week old puppies - are these lessons only for small puppies?

The exercises in the film and in the Puppy Culture Essentials Playlist are for puppies of all ages. The reason you see very small puppies demonstrating things is that, as breeders, we introduce things much earlier than you have an opportunity to. But the process is the same, whether your puppy is 4 weeks old or 4 months old.

Puppy Culture is a guiding hand for you and your puppy.

Our team of experts have bred, raised, and trained thousands of dogs, and we know from first hand experience what works best. We make that vast experience available to you, broken down into clear instructions, in short chapters that are easy and fun to watch. 

How you teach your puppy is as important as what you teach your puppy.

Studies have shown that many common training techniques can actually increase aggression and problem behaviors, which can damage the human-animal bond. The Puppy Culture program will show you how to train your dog while enriching your bond with him, every step of the way.  

Real life proof that it works.

Most puppy training videos appear to have been shot in one weekend, using a few easy-to-train puppies. How do you know those training techniques really work in the long run? Unlike other films, Puppy Culture tracks one litter over three years, so you can see the true results of our program. You’ll see the puppies overcome real and varied behavior challenges and ultimately grow to gentle, well-behaved adult dogs.

The truth about socialization.

During this sensitive time, the puppy is as vulnerable to imprinting negative experiences as he is to imprinting good experiences. This means you need a good plan for socializing your puppy.  Your Puppy Culture team gives you a plan and guides you through the process.

How to be your puppy's advocate.

It can be difficult to stand up to a person in a position of authority, such as a veterinarian or a dog trainer, but you need to learn what’s right and wrong for your puppy, and stand up against bad advice.  Puppy Culture’s veterinarians, behaviorists, and breeders give you the facts to know when you’re right, and the conviction to walk away from anything that might harm your puppy.
