Living with Kids, babies, and dogs

Life with kids and dogs can be wonderful, exciting, and fun. It can also be stressful, overwhelming and downright horrible. We get it. (Remind me to tell you the story of how my child learned to count to ten.)

Help for families with dogs and kids of all ages

Helping families with dogs prepare for the ongoing changes that living with children brings is our specialty. Jennifer is a licensed consultant for Family Paws Parent Education and can help your family balance chaos at any age or stage.

This training will include 60-min in-home sessions with your family and dog(s) in your home, resources, and support.

Our Family Integration services are for you if…

  1. You want expert guidance as you prepare to add a new baby to the household.
  2. Your toddler is bouncing off the dog and you need some help figuring out boundaries.
  3. You’re overwhelmed and need some new management strategies.
  4. You’ve had a scare or a bite and need professional, compassionate support.
  5. You want your kids and dogs to have happy, healthy relationships.

How it Works

Step One: Select a Package and Setup Service

The Family Integration services do not require an initial consultation so you can pick the package that’s right for you and we’ll get you started as quickly as possible.

Step Two: We train you and your dog!

Jennifer will come to your home and perform a professional assessment then create a comprehensive, customized plan to help you and your dog adjust to life with children.

Step Three: We’re still here!

We’re just a phone call, mouse click or webcam away until your next session.
Depending on your package, we can set up the following sessions before your baby’s developmental milestones, as your homework is complete or even when you just need some encouragement and support.

Step Four: Yep. Still here!
If you have a package, we continue to support you for a full 6 months from the first visit via email phone and web chat as needed.
