Thank you for being a part of our Inner Circle Email Newsletter!

By being a member of the Dire Wolf Project’s Inner Circle, you have early access to information others simply do not have.

It is our pleasure to gift you a little of our time each week day.

It’s time to make the final preparations for the BIG DireWolf Express trip this Thursday.

Today, we travel the puppies and a few adults to our vet in Davenport, Washington. Dr. Dale is going to make sure that all of the dogs and puppies are healthy and ready to take the big trip. We will also complete the puppy folders with all the necessary paperwork.

Tuesday, one family will drive up from San Diego to collect their new puppy. We will also prepare our Chrysler Pacifica with a new oil change and deep clean.

Wednesday, Jay drives to the Canadian border near British Columbia to deliver the second puppy.

Then, Thursday is the big day.

During the trip, you can track your DireWolf Dog’s journey on the DireWolf Express in real time all along the track to your home. The DireWolf Express uses the free app below to post pictures, videos, and stories about your DireWolf Dog as it travels across our great country. It’s available in both Android and iOS versions for mobile, although you can also log in via their website. It’s free to download and use.


Download the PolarSteps app from Google Play or the App Store and follow Jennifer Stoeckl for your upcoming trip.

This Thursday’s trip is called the “Friendly Neighbor Trip”.

You can also view past rides and how each driver did with the DireWolf Dogs in their care.

Don’t forget there are several puppy training articles on the Dire Wolf Project website that you should read prior to your puppy’s arrival. Here’s the link:

There is a multitude of dog training philosophies and trainers with contradictory dog training advice throughout the Internet. Our breed needs a balanced training method with an emphasis on building confidence. For this reason, we highly recommend binge watching the puppy videos produced by McCann Dogs out of Ontario, Canada.

Here is a link to a 9 video puppy training series from McCann Dogs:
