The three super-puppies my amazing working dog, Franny, gave birth to in mid-October are thriving under a gentle biosensor program that creates creates super confident puppies able to handle life’s adversities with calm and humor. All three pups are potential psychiatric service dogs; if you’d like being wait-listed for one, email (put SUPERPUPPY
in the subject line).
Franny’s labor and delivery seemed to be textbook smooth — she assisted me with taking service dog puppy in training Meadow to the vet for booster shots and a 4 month check up at 2:30 pm. While there she seemed a bit agitated — mostly panting heavily. I was curious because I’ve socialized and conditioned her to not get anxious about going to visit the vet. So I suspected something was up since she was within a few days of her due date . We finished the appointment and returned home. Within 20 minutes she had delivered her first puppy, the only female, while I was away from the whelping area fetching towels. Approximately one hour later she delivered the largest pup of the litter, a male, and about an hour after that, her second male puppy and the last of the trio. It was helpful to know from earlier radiographs that there were three in there. Once all were safely born, it was clean up the leftover mess and give them the time to learn how to handle their entry into the world from the safe calm of in utero.
The pups are all thriving — they are weighed daily and each is gaining about 5 ounces each day and are all nearly almost 2 pounds. They are handled gently, cuddled briefly and are exposed to a variety of sights and sounds. While for now they are blind and deaf, there will come a day where they will start to receive these stimuli — the smell, taste, touch (texture and temperature) and positioning they can sense already. Franny is eating well and often. Each day she spends a little more time away from the trio — she does this by staying near me. To ease her and give her all the strength she needs to help make these pups even more amazing than they already are, I schedule myself to be gone only briefly if at all each day. To pay attention to her, let her correct the two service dog pups in training underfoot — Summer and Meadow — and just have a break.
Yesterday, on Day 3, I began a biosensor program with 5 different exercises done on each puppy once per day til day 16 — each exercise takes but a few seconds. The intentions are to affect and create neural pathways towards the goal of creating super confident puppies who will handle any of life’s adversities with calm and a sense of humor.
Benefits of Stimulation
Five benefits have been observed in canines that were exposed to the Bio Sensor stimulation exercises. The benefits noted were:
Improved cardio vascular performance (heart rate)
Stronger heart beats
Stronger adrenal glands
More tolerance to stress
Greater resistance to disease
This is not a replacement for all the other socialization and handling and exposure they’ll be receiving as they mature, but I cannot wait to see how this trio develops.
My goal is to place all 3 should they merit it, as psychiatric service dogs. If you or someone you know might be interested in being wait listed for these pups, who will be available for placement before the end of the year, in either puppy raising or end user homes, please email and put SUPERPUPPY INTEREST in subject heading.
Stay tuned for more updates.
