We are licensed presenters of the following programs and incorporate their information into our consultations and training sessions.
DOGS AND STORKS
Congratulations! You’re expecting…
It’s natural to feel concerned about introducing your dog to your new baby. Some dogs warm up to new babies easily, while others can be jealous or nervous. You may be worried your pup will act out and want to help him ease into life with an infant.
After all, he was your first baby!
The Dogs & Storks® program is for expecting families as they prepare for life with a baby. We offer positive, practical and fun solutions that will help you include your dog once baby arrives.
We want to help ease families into the transition from pet parents to baby parents with pets.
DOGS AND TODDLERS
Your baby is learning to crawl…all over Fido!
Dogs & Toddlers™ is the ideal program for families with dogs and babies who are soon to be crawling or walking.
Often, the first three months have gone smoothly, and many families are caught off guard when their dog begins to show discomfort with the new developmental changes of a grabbing, wobbling toddler.
This program offers insight and proactive options for some of the common challenges families with dogs experience as baby becomes mobile.
Set your whole family up for success through your child’s toddler years.
