Puppy Imprinting


So what is ENS and what does it do for the puppy ?


ENS, or Early Neurological Stimulation, encompasses the introduction of neurological experiences during the initial phases of a puppy’s life. The origins of the ENS training regimen can be traced back to a military-developed initiative known as the “bio-sensor” program. Dr. Carmen Battaglia played a pivotal role in both researching and promoting this concept, which eventually gained fame as the “Super Puppy Program.” Notably, puppies come into the world in a condition of utter vulnerability. Classified as an “altricial” species, they lack faculties like vision, hearing, and the capacity to regulate their body temperature. Their mobility is limited to a brief crawl, often aimed at seeking warmth in the proximity of their mother. This phase of dependence persists until the puppy reaches approximately two weeks of age. In stark contrast, “precocial” species are equipped with sensory capabilities from birth, along with the ability to maintain body temperature and even engage in rudimentary locomotion shortly after being born. The equine family stands as a prime example of a precocial species.

The benefits of ENS last a lifetime, not just the early years.

Early Scent Introduction (ESI) isn’t just a training routine – it’s an immersive journey that unlocks the astonishing potential hidden within your puppy’s sense of smell.

This meticulously curated expedition amplifies their innate ability to detect and respond to specific scents, laying down the foundation for a lifetime of unparalleled skills and profound bonds.

ESI involves acquainting your pup with a range of potent scents, each introduced briefly. Every day ushers in a new aroma, while we keenly observe and document your pup’s responses. Positive reactions arise when your furry friend displays curiosity and gravitates towards the scent. Conversely, any attempts to shy away from the scent are noted as negative reactions. Neutral responses indicate a more tempered reaction, suggesting a milder interest.


Puppy Imprinting

This is a routine practice with handling our puppies from day one.

We follow a proven system of massage and interacting with the puppies and the mother each day.  Introducing new environments as they get more mobile at week 3 and 4. Stimulation and interaction with many of our trainers gives them the social skills to be confident with change. This allows us to determine their potential at the age 7 weeks when the personality testing is done.

This gives both the puppy and the family the best advantage to a perfect match.


Our Application Process

If you’re interested in purchasing a puppy from Siess Ranch, the first step is to fill out a puppy application. The puppy application is a detailed questionnaire that asks about your lifestyle, your experience with dogs, and what you’re looking for in a new puppy. This information helps the Siess Ranch to determine whether one of their puppies would be a good match for you and your family.

Siess Ranch carefully evaluates each puppy at different growth stages to ensure what you are requesting in a puppy is avaiable. Our goal is to ensure that each puppy is going to a loving and responsible home with their needs met.

This gives both the puppy and the family the best advantage to a perfect match.


The Siess Ranch Mission of Our Breeding Program is our Puppy Matching System

 With this approach, we have been able to allow many of our past puppies to not only become therapy dogs but by matching our puppies with the right families we set everyone up for success.

What our past buyers are saying…


1. **Our baby’s baseline training has provided an easy transition for both her and us.**
– The first night she slept quietly all night! We learned fast the signs to watch for when she needed to go outdoors. Thank you for your guidance on this it has saved us from any accidents in the crate.

2. **We have never had a puppy so relaxed at sitting for treats.**
– Coco has learned to sit and be calm while waiting for a treat. I was amazed that this could be taught at an early age. It helped me work on advanced training with ease.

3. **He follows my kiddos around like one of the crew.**
– I can tell that our puppy was introduced to other people because he has excellent socialization skills already at this young age.

4. **New places he handles with ease.**
– Beth mentioned that a change in environment was what they worked on in their training program. It was evident, that the first day we took him to meet and greet at our parent’s house, he followed us with confidence.

5. **OMG walking on a leash is a breeze**
– We got our Lab at an older age and were a little concerned he had missed out on that early training. What Beth and her team of trainers have worked on has helped considerably with making this the right choice for us.

However with the sale of the puppy will be with limited AKC puppy papers and pedigree.

Yes, we encourage this if at all possible. This gives both you and the puppy familiar bonding prior to them  leaving the ranch. (If you cannot visit the next best thing is a face time or zoom meet up.
