Our Socialization Program

We're proud to say we're raising our puppies the Habibi way!
As a teacher with a background in working with children with special needs and disabilities, I am a firm believer in the benefits of proper socialization and age appropriate education.  When it comes to my puppies, I follow the same philosophies!  This helps us in our pursuit of producing puppies with strong bonding instincts with humans.

That   Habibi Bear Magic

Everyone that meets our puppies says they are the friendliest and sweetest dog they have ever seen.  We call them our little "Crystal Babies" as they raise the vibration wherever they go!  Families write me daily telling me they cannot walk down the street without being stopped by people marveling over their Habibi and asking where to get one.  We have dozens of letters from trainers and vets who are very impressed with the work we have done to prepare our pups for their next step in life. Receiving these letters and calls truly make my heart swell with pride.  I am so very proud of my little dogs and how they are changing lives, one tail-wag and lick at a time! 

We're proud to say we raise our puppies with the Habibi Method
We have poured our heart and soul into our little Habibi Bears, and our advanced puppy curriculum and socialization program has been what we feel, sets our dogs apart; creating healthy, happy, highly intuitive and intelligent puppies.  It takes time and dedication to rear such special babies.  As a teacher and energy healer, I am divinely guided with new methods in connecting with our puppies and cultivating their developing intuitive nature and unique gifts.  Our process is fluid and continually evolving with each litter.  They never cease to amaze me with their ability to embody unconditional love and trust.  

 

HABIBI UNIVERSITY

Your Exclusive Portal for Preparing for your new family member

We have been raising our litters  with this philosophy for many years, and we know from experience, it works!   The system gives our puppies  and you, the best start possible.  As the puppies grow and we work our way through our socialization program, we will provide an opportunity to  learn how to work with your new puppy in your home.  You will have lessons to continue at home with your Habibi Bear, and can follow right along without losing your puppy's socialization skills!  Our program is a two part system that involves two dedicated parties for guaranteed success.  US and YOU!  That's right.  We provide the groundwork using our effective process that instills strong bonding instincts and empowers the puppy to use its voice, while we honor its innate individual gifts.  Then, when you bring home your puppy, we give you our hand-written instructions to follow-up with at home, thus completing our program.   Now you have your own well-mannered and socialized Habibi Bear puppy!  We believe that each and every puppy deserves the best start we can give it, in order for it to be the best puppy for our loving families.  We are front-runners in the field of puppy socialization and rearing. Our goal is to produce loving, intelligent puppies with strong bonding instincts, so they can perform in the most important role-- a service or emotional support companion for a child with Special Needs. Our litters are carefully planned and raised, and we spend countless hours interacting, handing, and observing our puppies.  The success of this program is evident in our strong, thriving, and extremely social puppies.  Don't settle for run of the mill when choosing your next puppy!

  • Learning to be alone in their crate and pen,  our trainer will work with crying

After years of working with puppies and studying canine behavior, we have designed a new whelping box and that encourages pups to use a designated area for pottying, sleeping, eating and play.

In addition, pups receive scheduled daily playtime in our homes; kitchen and house exploration, as well as our own obstacle courses created just for them.  They are closely monitored for accidents and immediate corrections. We never give pups full access to the house without supervision (and we highly encourage families to follow the same process for success).  This reinforces our philosophy of keeping an immaculate area for the pups to learn and explore safely.   We are devoted to our puppies and feel this is the best way to produce quality puppies.  There is not one single household sound that these puppies have not experienced in their formative weeks.  They are handled by people of all ages, touched from nose to tail, and are very familiar with human touch.  All puppies have received our utmost attention to their development and growth, cleanliness and nutrition, schedules and potty training.  That is our promise!  Everyone reports back to us to say each person who encounters our puppies is absolutely amazed at how socialized and friendly they are.   That doesn't happen this often by chance.  That is the result of the dedication we show to our puppies and our families.

Your puppy will be desensitized to the following sounds:

  • sirens
  • children playing & screaming
  • veterinarian's office
  • traffic
  • groomer
  • normal home sounds
  • television
  • various other animal sounds
  • radio/music
  • gunshots
  • fireworks
  • large airport
  • thunderstorms
  • kennel sounds
  • machines & tools found in garage
  • train track sounds & whistle
  • infants crying
  • small airport
  • typical day camp noises
  • various other sounds pup will encounter in a lifetime

Sound socialization training  makes a positive impact on the quality of life for your new puppy. Your puppy will learn to accept and be perfectly at ease with sounds in general.  They will not be fearful, nervous, or uncomfortable by environmental sounds or stimuli once they are ready to go home with you!

Habibi Pup Academy Training 
(Online Training Portal coming soon in 2022 for all Habibi Pup Academy graduates)

We highly recommend our in-house training to set your Habibi up for success.  Training is important for you and your dog. Following our schedule will result in a puppy that knows what to expect and thrives!  Early intervention is crucial for socialization and education, and its fun! What we are hearing from our families is how much more they are enjoying these classes as they are able to rewind and re-watch techniques, which has been helpful for them in remembering how to do techniques.

There are many reasons to invest in training, here are just a few:

  1. Training is not just for puppy, it is for YOU! A well trained dog loses its skills if they are not properly applied
  2. A way to bond as a family with your puppy
  3. Being involved in a puppy training class not only trains the puppy, but it helps the humans in the family learn together how to train their new puppy APPROPRIATELY
  4. Learn through experience, the right and wrong way to discipline your puppy, with a trainer to oversee your progress- We also have monthly Q&A's to answer all your training needs!
  5. If you are having any behavior issues, Emily can assist you and help you nip them in the bud as they are starting, instead of waiting too long and having to undo bad behaviors.
  6. Most importantly---we feel every family should experience how to train a pup the good old fashioned way---through work and daily practice.  There are some things in life that just cannot be bought for a price.  The experience and bonding you will receive from puppy class is priceless.
     
    Training is an on-going commitment.
