puppy cam - warrior canine connection - pec

You are watching the Puppy Cam from the Warrior Canine Connection (WCC) Puppy Enrichment Center! It is here that Wounded Warriors and WCC staff and volunteers give WCC’s Golden and Labrador Retriever puppies the early nurturing and training they need to develop into life-changing service dog partners of combat Veterans with disabilities. The puppies learn to love, trust, and bond with humans through all of the positive interactions they have with legions of Warriors and volunteers. This is where they learn how to learn, and then progress to basic commands starting at about four weeks of age.

About the puppies on puppy cam

Bred as a working dog and as a human companion, the Labrador is the most popular dog breed in North America.

Labradors were originally named St. John’s Dog , after the capital of Newfoundland in Canada. There, the puppies were raised as working dogs and as assistants to the fisherman. Through the years, labs developed athletic bodies, a short coat, and a sharp intelligence. The combinations of these traits make Labradors the perfect dog breed to assist veterans through the Warrior Canine Connection program.

Because Labradors were bred as working dogs, puppies must be trained to be obedient so as to avoid bad behavior. Their working roots also mean that they require lots of physical exercise to keep them calm

Puppy Info

Puppies on the puppy cam generally weigh about two pounds for every week of age. Meaning puppies that are one month old will weigh about 8lbs.

When the puppies reach adulthood and are full grown, the females will weigh about 50 to 75lbs and the males will weigh anywhere from 65 to 85lbs.

When puppies reach 10 weeks of age, they are placed with a family that will “parent” them and teach them the habits and skills necessary for working as a service dog.

The puppies at WCC undergo positive reinforcement methods, which means they are rewarded with treats and praise. After about two years of training, the puppies will have learned about 80 commands and the training will be coming to an end.
