New and expecting families with dogs/pets benefit from ongoing resources, guidance and education.  FPPE supports a collaborative effort between professionals to promote safe and respectful human-animal bond and dynamics from the start.    It is with this in mind that we are expanding our programs and reaching out to veterinary professionals and exploring how our materials may complement your services and support the needs of the families you support through your veterinary practice.  We are very excited about the projects ahead and hope you will join us in January 2016 for our first Family Paws Parent Education Course for Veterinary professionals.

Together lets build a dynamic support system for growing families with dogs!
