What Is BAB?

BAB (Badass Breeder) is a program created by Jeanette Forrey to help breeders empower their puppies and give them a voice in what they need. It also makes a big difference in finding the right families for each puppy and the right puppy for each family.

Here’s what Jeanette has to say on why she created her program:

Puppies are raised to believe in themselves and be the best they can be through guiding emotional responses, meeting their innate needs in order, building confidence through intentional and purposeful curriculum and handling that aligns to their sensitive developmental benchmarks, and lastly, evaluating each puppy prior to placement to ensure their voice is heard and they are honored and respected not only with their breeder but with their new human as well.

Here’s summary of a list of benefits for puppies raised on the BAB program.

Better Stress Handling

When the puppies are a few days old we start with Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS). This improves their stress responses later in life. 

Improved Confidence

Early Scent Introduction (ESI) is also started at a few days old. It is a procedure to help with nose awareness and confidence. 

Puppy/Family Temperament Matching

At 7-8 weeks we do temperament testing. This is a test that helps us place a puppy with the right family, and helps you pick a puppy that will thrive in your home.
