Keeping kids and dogs safe together is extremely important me. It saddens me so much to know that 7-9 year old boys are the number one dog bite victims in this country and even worse....from their own family dog.
If you are expecting a child, or have toddlers or young children, let's sit down and talk about how your faithful furry friend will be affected by this new addition and how to make this transition easier for him. Let me share with you how to introduce new baby BEFORE she arrives, how dogs perceive this new strange addition, how to ensure he continues to get the attention he's used to, and ultimately, how to prevent a bite from happening. As dogs age, they often become painful. If you have an aging dog and a toddler, let's talk about body language to watch for that may be your dog trying to signal to your toddler to stay away.
