All puppies are imprinted from birth. We are with our puppies daily handling each one with touch exercises. Early Neurological Stimulation will give your puppy a superior advantage. More ENS information can be found at http://www.angelfire.com/fl/alaturka/imgArticles/ENS.pdf

Buying Your Puppy's Supplies
1. Make a visit to Icewind's Puppy Supplies, for a more personal service to guide you in the care of your new puppy. Examples: Grooming Brushes, Housetraining Items, Crate Sizes, Chew Bones, Toys, the proper size collar, harness or leash, etc. You can come weeks before picking up your puppy or do it all in the same day. If you need extra time for this just let us know.
Taking Your Puppy Home
1. Please allow extra time to ensure that you will arrive for your scheduled appointment on time. Most visits take 1 hour.
2. Make a veterinarian appointment for your new puppy as close to pick up as possible.
3. For your puppy's good health, we ask when you leave Icewind you go directly home. We understand you would like to show off your new puppy, but this is not recommended. There are certain airborne diseases puppies can be exposed to.
4. Bringing your puppy home - For optimal health and energy, puppies need 15-20 hours of sleep. Limit playtime so your puppy doesn't become exhausted.
5. The excitement of bringing your puppy home - It's best not to overwhelm your puppy with large numbers of people. Your puppy will already experience stress upon the change in environment.
6. Your puppy will need a place where he/she can be allowed quiet time. Don't allow well meaning family and friends to overwhelm or overtire your puppy with excitement.
