We are doing the Early Neurological Stimulation Program,which is early
exercises done on pups as early as day three of the pups life.
Many dogs are taken from the kennel, to the field, and back to the kennel.
They may work great on the field, but that is FAR from enough.
Example: When taken to town and a truck goes by, they are afraid.
The question becomes: Is this bad nerves or lack of socialization?
At this point, it does not matter.
We believe at the critical age of the dogs development, his mind was not given
the proper nourishment to create a final product that will be stable and able to
handle the stress of which ever job is required.
We have decided to train and build a foundation program on our pups to bring
them up according to our guidelines.
Our goal is to keep 1 or 2 pups from each litter for this program to see how each pup
develops under this program.
Naturally, every puppy will not be a police dog or a serious sport dog, but by the
time they are 6 months old, we hope they will be rock solid in temperament.
The dogs that don't make police or sport dogs should be super family dogs and
personal protection dogs because of the time put into developing them.
The puppies we produce at MBP are raised around our children and we believe in
building a hard firm foundation on them in their puppy stage.
Our bloodline is extremely strong in the KNPV line, it is very important for our
customers to follow our recommendations and requirement for their new pup.
It is very important for our customers to find the proper trainer for their new pup,
they can go to Association of Professional Dog Trainers (www.apdt.com) for help.

Puppies can learn a great deal at a young age, but they can easily be destroyed
with rough or LACK of handling.
The puppy should feel no pressure, so that he/she is free to learn, think, and react
in a happy environment.
This makes an motivated and confident partner.
Tracking and Searching Requirements
1. Tracking the puppy with food.

This will help develop the puppies problem solving ability, as well as, his
confidence to work alone.
