Bringing a new baby into the household is exciting but can be stressful, especially if you are concerned with your dog’s ability to handle change. Let us help calm your nerves. As a member of Family Paws Parent Education, we have the tools to help bring you piece of mind.

We can:
  • Discuss your dog’s temperament and set up safety etiquette
  • Prepare your dog for changes in the house (baby crying, new smells and sounds, toys and bassinets)
  • Create a cozy and safe space your dog enjoys while you tend to the baby
  • Show you how to nurture the bond between your pup and new baby
Already have a baby or toddler running around? Worried about the interactions between the kids and Fido? Let us help you get things under control!

We can:
  • Instruct your children on proper ways to say hello to your pup
  • Develop a series of safe, child appropriate games to play with your dog
  • Set up protocol and proper management to keep everyone safe
  • Incorporate your child into your dog’s training activities
  • Receive additional handouts and educational materials
