Did you know that roughly 77 percent of dog bites come from dogs that are known to the family?
It can happen in the blink of an eye. No matter how sweet your dog, how tolerant of children, there are times when, from your dog's point of view, enough is enough.
Babies and toddlers are, by definition, unpredictable. They flail and wobble and fall over, all of which can be disturbing for your dog. We can help you organize your environment to keep everyone safe and your dog be comfortable and happy.
If you are expecting a baby, we can help you and your dog prepare. If your kids are older, we can teach you and them to read dog body language so that you can all understand what he is telling you. This is vital to keep your children safe.
We offer an educational program, using video, song, rhymes and games, that teaches kids how to safely interact with dogs in general and your dog specifically.
And we show your kids how to teach obedience skills such as sit, down, stay, wait, leave-it and come when called so that the whole family can be involved in training.
