Recently I had the absolute pleasure of working with Jennifer Shryock, in the creation of some online animal training content. This included her being a special guest on a podcast show that I host.

As a behaviour nerd I totally loved learning about everything that Family Paws has to teach. And I also came to realize the larger important role the dissemination of this information has for society at large.

Education around babies, toddlers and children with our pets is vital to everyone’s safety and well-being! Not just education through – the right education. I personally haven’t come across a better source of information for these important topics anywhere in my career.

Whether you are a pet professional wanting to up-skill yourself or a family in need of information about how to integrate your new baby – you have come to the right place. Via Family Paws you can learn everything you need to know using the most up to date and ethical animal training and management practices.

I am excited for you and your continued journey with the Family Paws Family.
