Family Paws

Tuesday, March 28, 2023

Join us for an evening of learning where our Family Paws Parent Educator will provide expecting families with practical education and support during pregnancy to increase safety and decrease concerns many new parents and families may have about the family dog. Our emphasis is on a positive, practical and preventive approach to challenges that arise with a new little one in the household. Here are some highlights: - Dogs & Storks™ is an international program created by Family Paws Parent Education that helps expecting families with dogs prepare for life with baby. - Dogs & Toddlers™ emphasizes the importance of including family dogs in a safe and comfortable manner for all. - We discuss specific ways to include family dogs in daily baby routines from the start! - We educate about different types of supervision and offer solutions for safety. - Our program addresses the changing family dynamics and how that may impact the family dog.
