are you a dog owner expecting a new baby in your family?

Family life with dogs is a joy, but can be challenging too. A new baby in the home changes everything — including your dog’s whole world! As licensed Family Paws Parent Educators, we specialize in dog and baby dynamics. We understand that the transition to parenthood will cause some major adjustments within your family and household. Not only is this a huge change for you, it is also a big change for your family dog. Preparing your dog for the arrival of, and for life with, a new baby is essential.
