Otter and his people out for a stroll  Babies Kids & Canines

  Saturday April 1st  10 am to 12 pm

Are you preparing for a new addition to your household?  Is someone you know expecting?  Did a friend recently have a baby? Do you know someone who needs guidance in this department?  We have the answers!  Family Dog Training Center is hosting a seminar for all those expectant parents (and their adult family members, too!).

Join Jayne Bosch, senior Family Dog instructor and mother of two, for tips on helping the dogs prepare for the new arrival so you can start training behaviors before the baby comes.  She’ll offer suggestions for easing the transition during those first few stressful weeks, along with specific techniques for coping with common situations that arise.  And she’ll share her successes (and struggles) as baby becomes a toddler, and beyond.

This seminar is formatted for adult humans so no dogs please!
