Thanks Karen, that makes great sense. I too want to continue dog sports with my next puppy. Went to visit a breeder today who uses the techniques in Puppy Culture, plus the rules of 7 and more. We had a great discussion. After reading online, watching videos, and now meeting her and her pups, I am really hoping to find a puppy that has been given a big Head Start (:

Spoke with another great breeder tonight. She talked to me about her choice of early neuro training She is advocate of Avidog. So I looked into that as well. here is a link talking about the two -

It's wonderful how much breeders are looking into working on early development for the long term health and happiness of their dogs. Love it.

Yes, some breeders really like Avidog. BuT it is a really expensive program, so many opt for the MUCH less expensive, and also excellent Puppy Culture program. Puppy Culture is inexpensive enogh that one of my breeder friends actually buys the DVDís and gives them to each of her puppy buyers before their puppy is ready to go home. That way they understand how their puppy has been raised and can continue the good work. I bought it just because I was interested in it. Avidog is just too expensive for that.

What a good idea, to give them the DVD. I just looked on Amazon, it's $70 there. Our library also has it and I'm going to pick it up tomorrow. No such luck with Avidog, either on Amazon or in the library system. They definitely have a bigger, more expensive program. They claim it's scientifically based, but I haven't found any published papers or anything, yet.

Well, for that matter, They lady who wrote the Puppy Culture program cites lots of the scientific literature behind her methods so that people can read the original papers themselves too. And from what Iíve heard, although there are, of course, differences, there is a LOT of overlap between the two programs too.
