According to an article by Dr. Carmen Battaglia as well as research from the U.S. Miltary, it was learned that early neurological stimulation exercises could have important and lasting effects on puppies and adult dogs. Timshell Farm and The Monarchy employ these daily exercises in pups beginning on Day 3 of their lives. This coincides with the "1st period" of rapid neurological growth and development, which begins on the third day of life and lasts until the sixteenth day. The development of this "Bio Sensor" program and the results of research can be found on this website under the Tab entitled "Puppy Prepardness." Under the same tab, you will find a detailed description of the exercises along with pictures to demonstrate the tactile stimulation. This Bio Sensor program easily fits into our established puppy rearing process and supports our values. This does not replace our early socialization program. If you have any questions about this program for our newborns, please contact either Timshell Farm or the Monarchy. Thank you.

I would love to hear comments about grooming and cleaning your pups and adult dogs, especially as it comes to ear cleaning. Does anyone successfully use apple cidar vinegar to clean ears or saline solution. Floppy ears need a weekly cleaning and I'm never sure of the way to accomplish this to avoid ear infections. I also have two large German Shephards who are prone to ear infections. Love to hear from you all on this topic.Melanie McCarthyContinue
