What is Bio Sensor?

In an effort to improve performance in thier canines, the military developed the Bio Sensor or 'Super Puppy' program. After years of research they learned that early neurological stimulation exercises could have important and lasting positive effects. The program was also focused on giving canines a superior advantage compared with other dogs that were not given the exercises. Five exercises were developed, and are given to each puppy individually.

These include: Tactile stimulation (tickling) of toes with a Q-tip. Head held erect. Head pointed down. Supine position. Thermal stimulation (cool towel).
Each excersise is performed once a day for 3-5 seconds. (None of this is a substitute for normal handling, play or socialization however).

The benefits include: Improved cardiovascular performance, stronger heart beats, stronger adrenal glands, more tolerance to stress, and greater resistance to disease. Learning tests showed that Bio Sensor pups were more active, more exploratory than non Bio Sensor pups. Behavior during the testing showed that Bio Sensor puppies were less disturbed, calmer, made fewer errors and only occasionally whined to show distress, as compared to other puppies.

Super Puppy is used at Aspen Leaf Labradoodles to help provide families with the best possible character in your puppy and a greater capacity in pups to handle change. Our hope is to ease puppies' transtions to new homes and create solid foundations for more secure and relaxed adult dogs.

Why pay a higher price for my Labradoodle?  I’ve seen them advertised for less.

This is where the adage, ‘You get what you pay for’ is completely true.  Breeders that belong to an association are required to provide records of proper health testing.  They also commit to exceptional care and socialization for adult dogs and puppies. All this takes money, time and effort.  These are necessary and worthwhile expenses for you, for our dogs, and for their puppies.  You are investing in a family member that will share your home for years. You want to make sure they’ve been cared for properly and that you receive a sound, healthy and happy puppy.  It is also important that you receive an authentic, registered, pedigreed puppy that is what the breeder claims.

Will my puppy chew things up? 

Yes.  Plus they will pee in the house, bark, steal from the garbage, eat gross stuff, race around like crazy and maybe dig in the yard.  Labradoodle puppies are exceptional young dogs, but they are just that: young dogs.  Any and all behavior is normal as they learn what is and is not acceptable at your house.  Patience and clear, consistent communication from you with lots of praise for good behavior will be absolutely necessary as puppy becomes a well-behaved adult.  We recommend puppy classes for every family.  A good thing to remember – a bored puppy is a destructive puppy.  Keep them busy, keep them learning, keep them playing and feeling well-loved.

Why does the breeder ask so many questions
about my house and living situation?

A good breeder will; the well being of their puppies is the first and foremost concern.  If a breeder doesn’t ask you any questions – find another one.

Should I crate train my puppy? 

We crate all our dogs and puppies at night and while we’re out of the house for safety reasons and to preserve our house!  Crating is not inhumane, dogs are denning animals and feel secure when crated.  But too much of a good thing is bad. Make sure young puppies are not in the crate for more than a 4-hour stretch during the day. Adults dogs should be limited to 6-8 hours at the most.  The rest of the time they should be a part of the family, having plenty of interaction with their people – where Doodles are definintely meant to be!

Do Labradoodles need grooming? 

They do – the length should be chosen because of the time you do or do not have to spend combing your Labradoodle. Coat length can also be adjusted accordingly for hot or cold seasons.  Expect matting, especially as puppies change over to their adult coat. That starts around 8 or 9 months of age. Check the neck under the ears and in the armpits (do dogs have armpits, or ‘leg-pits’?). The matts will usually begin in these areas.  If you find them early enough you can stay ahead of them and control matting if you like the longer look of the coat. Your dog will also be much more comfortable.  For less maintenance, have your dog trimmed by a professional groomer to a shorter length. And keep a close watch on puppy’s hind end – that area should be kept very short to prevent feces from building up.  Scooting or straining while going potty can indicate there are matts in that area.  

How do I keep the puppy from chewing?

At 4-6 months, baby teeth begin to fall out and are replaced. Your puppy will chew everything, including rocks and corners of furniture. Make sure that puppy has access to lots of hard, nubbed chew bones, the durable teething toys are best. Be patient and be vigilant to redirect if puppy gets hold of something that's not a chew toy.
