At Tya's Doodles, We breed quality, health tested, Labradoodles, mini-Goldendoodles and Standard Poodles. We are dedicated to producing happy and healthy, well socialized pups for loving and caring homes. Our focus is on providing forever homes for each of the puppies. Our dogs are great for companionship, not to mention therapy and service dogs as well. Our breeding dogs are health tested and our dams are on supplements prior to conception to better the chance of having healthier pups, we feed nutritious food to our dogs. We take great pride in early training of our pups, starting at just 3 days old! We share with you the heritage and bloodlines of your new puppy, because it is important for us, that you know that your new pup is from great parents. We are there for our customers long after they have their pups, and we remain connect and look forward to seeing the life events of the dog.
At Tya's Doodles our dogs are part of our family, they live with us, play, sleep and eat with us, travel with us, and are constant companions to us. Each puppy is treated as if it was the first pup ever born on our place. At this moment, I'm going to share with you what I do to enhance the development of the puppy starting at just 3 days old.
This is a series, as I only have time in one article to cover one of the topics. I will barely skim the surface of this topic for sake of time. The process that I use is called ESI or Early Scent Introduction. Early Scent Introduction takes place starting on day 3 along with ENS. Each day, a select pungent scent item based on items that they may interact with during their daily life is placed in front of each puppy and they smell the item and the response is recorded as a positive, meaning the puppy likes it, a mixed response, or a negative, meaning that the puppy turned away and didn't like it at all. ESI was developed by Gayle Watkins, PHD. a long time breeder and co-founder of Avidog. The log term results of ESI were studied in a 7-year breeding test. Success of puppies trained in ESI compared to a control group was remarkable! In their adult life they achieved scenting titles much earlier, even years earlier! They accumulated more titles overall and their abilities were more complex. ESI has been used widely by breeder enthusiasts involved in
scenting disciplines and the protocol has been endorsed by the American Kennel Club.
We do not substitute the ESI training for the daily socialization and handling of the puppies, this is an additional benefit. Here's a video of me explaining and doing the ESI on one of my puppies from my last litter of Doodles.
