Dogs and Toddlers, Preparing families with dogs for life with Toddlers

This program is by far (in my opinion) the most important program that ALL dog lovers, parents, professionals and humans need to view.  Yep, basically everyone can benefit from the topics covered in this program.  One of my 2021 New Year’s resolutions is to reach as many people as possible with the important information covered in this program.  What are some of those important messages?  Great question!

Invites decrease bites!  Yes, yes yes!  Please do not allow your baby or toddler to close the gap or crawl up to or on your family dog!  This is one of the most common reasons little ones are bitten.

Kiss to Dismiss,  Ever feel uncomfortable when your dog licks your child?  There might be good reason for this discomfort.  Sometimes dogs lick to increase distance and space.  Think about it, what do you do when your dog licks your face?  Move away?  It works!  Learn more here.  Here is a post to learn more!    Here are also several videos talking about what I have observed and been calling Kiss to dismiss for years.  Kiss to Dismiss Part 1 and Kiss to Dismiss Part 2

Dog and baby on the scene a parent in between,  YES!  It is so important to be right there for your baby and dog so that you can observe and intervene comfortably if needed.  We address this in depth with our discussion on the 5 types of supervision and through increasing your Dog Aware skills.

This is only a tiny sampling of the information covered in this webinar!  We invite you to join us for one of our upcoming webinars.  Let’s all continue learning and increasing our Dog Aware skills together!  Babies grow, Dogs age, we have to adjust at every stage.  Continuing to learn and staying curious about our dogs and how they interact and engage with our human world is so important.  🙂  See you in one of our upcoming webinars!
