How We Care for Your Puppy
The first 16 weeks of your boxer pup's life are the most influential, critical ones. Pups are put through ENS (early neurological stimulation) and ESI (early scent introduction). They also experience Pat Hastings' Rule of 7's. Visual, auditory, tactile stimuli enhance your pup's development. Adventure boxes are set up. We start crate and "potty" training. We offer a pup with a solid foundation upon which you can build. Take a look at Socialization Checklist - 100 Things in 100 Days, for suggestions and ideas.

We do the other stuff, too. CKC registration, age-appropriate worming and vaccination, microchipping, and vet checkup.
We do NOT dock tails, crop ears, or remove dew claws.
