Dogs and Toddlers
We are excited to announce that Kristine, a Licensed Family Paws Educator, will be holding a live Dogs & Toddlers Webinar. As babies become more mobile and curious, dogs can often become confused and concerned by these new developments.
This 90-minute online presentation is a must-see presentation that focuses on fun, practical ways to prepare with your dog for the toddler-stage.
- Dog body language
- Grumble and Growl Zones
- Fun, safe games to play with the whole family
- Why proximity matters
All are welcome to attend, including, parents, grandparents, midwives, doctors, veterinarians, vet techs and more. Everyone will gain valuable insight into how to prepare with your dog for life with toddlers!

While we cannot guarantee the outcome of our work with you and your dog, the good news is that many behaviors are very responsive to behavior modification. Dogs are animals and each is an individual with their own personality, genetics, socialization, and history. Being animals, we cannot guarantee the final outcome, only that we will do our absolute best to ensure a good outcome for all parties involved. We pride ourselves on being open and honest and we will always do what is best for you and your dog.
