Penny OFA Results; Jasper’s OFA Results

YETI: Tri-color Male; 1st born


The largest of the litter, Yeti is very inquisitive, and entertaining. He is a master of expressions and loves to cuddle and hang out in a lap.

ELLIOT (Yoda): Black and White Male; 2nd born


The middle puppy, Elliot (formerly known as Yoda) is a doll. He loves belly rubs and cuddle time. His entire body wags and wiggles when you talk to him. He’s a little timid, and submissive, but warms up quickly!

Puppy Enrichment Programs

At Gil-VTales we do a lot with the puppies to ensure they will be well adjusted and ready to go off and make wonderful pets!

At 3 days old we begin practicing Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) with the pups. Studies have found that puppies that have been exposed to ENS exercises have

  1. Stronger Heart beats
  2. Improved cardio vascular performance (heart rate)
  3. More tolerant to stress
  4. Stronger adrenal glans
  5. greater resistance to disease

They have also found stimulated puppies were more active, more willing to explore the world, better at problem solving and had more confidence then puppies who were not exposed to ENS. Learn more about ENS here.

Puppy Culture

Puppy Culture training and enrichment programs.

We follow the protocols and guidelines provided by the Puppy Culture program.

  • Starting with Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) from day 3 to day 16.
  • By 1 week, we give lots of handling and cuddle time.
  • At 2 weeks, we introduce different textures and toys, changing their bedding frequently.
  • Around 2-3 weeks, we introduce household noises like vacuum cleaners and pots and pans. We also start grooming and offer treats with a clicker for future training.
  • At 3-4 weeks, they have their first bath, and we start house training with a patch of turf.
  • As they learn to walk, we introduce barrier challenges and have short adventures outside, staying mostly on the upper deck.
  • Around 5 weeks, they may experience their first fear period, so we keep interactions positive. We invite friends over to handle the pups.
  • At 6 weeks, we start exploring the fenced in yard learn to play in the grass, and they go on a car ride with mom.
  • By 7 weeks they are learning to go up and down stars, so we practice playing on the 3 levels of the back deck and running “zoomies” in the yard.
  • At 8 weeks they get their first vaccines, and we start exploring the front yard on a leash.
  • At 9 weeks we go on short outings and visit small groups of people to expose them to new experiences.
  • At 10 weeks they are ready for their new homes!
