If you have dogs and are expecting a baby, are a parent, bonus parent, grandparent, foster parent, caregiver or child care provider - this group is for you!

Being a parent or caregiver to both dogs and children comes with its own unique set of challenges. This is a safe space for us to come together monthly and discuss our challenges as well as our joys, while learning valuable tips about dog behavior, body language, management and training. Together we can problem solve, share ideas, and raise the next generation of dog lovers!


This group is going to focus on problem solving. If your dog has growled at a baby or child or is showing other signs of discomfort, what can we do to improve the situation? We'll discuss:

  • How to respond in the moment if something like this occurs.
  • What observations to make about the incident that can help you prevent it from happening again.
  • Management solutions you can implement NOW.
  • Training exercises and activities you can use to relationship build and repair trust.
  • When rehoming is the right choice.


Join me on Sunday May 16th at 10am PST and lets learn to about how we can create peace and harmony in our homes together. See you then!
