The dog training field is not regulated and when it comes to dog and baby safety it is important to be extra careful. Learn more. We want only methods that are safe for children to observe and where the dog trusts not fears the adults in the home. Please learn more I am happy to answer any questions you may have on this important topic. I had a LOT of learning to do myself over the years. We have come a LONG way in what we know about dogs and behavior. Thank Goodness!
