I raise a puppy in a stimulating environment with a variety of sounds, travel to new places, new people, children and other dogs. These are just a few of the things they are introduced to. Play is a very important part of their life and I believe that they deserve the joy of playing. I will build up and later use their play drive as motivation for training. I also use deprivation in the raising. My dogs never quite have all they want of anything. They are unspoiled by not being overindulged and, therefore they are easy to satisfy.
