Puppy Culture: Your One Stop Reference For Raising Healthy Puppies

By Anton Hout, author of The Guide to Aussie Training & Care

Puppy Culture is a relatively new addition to the collection of resources available to dog owners and breeders, but it is quickly taking a prominent position and for good reason. Unlike other programs, this one uses a series of DVD's to help guide you through the key developmental period for all dogs...the first 12 weeks of life. In this set of DVD's you'll find all sorts of helpful information and get guidance from experts who know exactly what it takes to raise a healthy, well-trained dog.

The idea behind the program is really quite simple. Dog breeder and owner Jane Killion, in her many years of interacting with a variety of dogs, came to realize that almost all the issues that are identified in "problem dogs" can be traced back to a lack of proper training and development during the first 12 weeks of life. Those early weeks of a puppy's life may seem innocuous, similar to human infancy, but in fact every bit of interaction you have with your pup during this time can help to shape his behavior for the rest of his life.

While Puppy Culture focuses on Bull Terriers, the breed that Ms. Killion has been working with for years, the information and techniques included in the program can be used with any dog. All breeds, from the less active to the energetic working breeds like the Australian Shepherd, can be trained and raised to be well behaved, well balanced and healthy dogs. Though the program is directed toward the early stages of a puppy's life, it can also be used on older puppies and even adults, though it may take a little more time for the effects of the techniques to take hold.

Veterinarians provide advice on vaccination and socialization while breeders show you how to set up the right environment for your pup when he first leaves the weaning box. Every little detail that your puppy experiences within those first 12 weeks can have a lasting effect so you can't afford to take this important time lightly; that's the message of this program and it's one that puppy owners and experts alike are raving about.

Since the program's release in 2014 it has become a go-to resource, helping thousands of owners to raise happier, healthier dogs. Unlike most reference works, this program combines descriptive instruction with video demonstrations so you that you can see firsthand how the techniques work. With everything laid out in a week-by-week timeline it's easy to skim through and look up the exact lesson you need as many times as you need to watch it.

There is little doubt that this program is an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to raise his or her puppy right. Training doesn't begin in adulthood; if you want your dog to be a well trained, well adjusted adult you need to start right from the beginning in the first 12 weeks of life.
