Don't let your dog's behavior put your baby at risk
Say goodbye to stress and hello to harmony.
Our Dogs & Babies online course will teach you everything you need to know.
In the USA alone, approximately 2.25 million children suffer a dog bite annually*.
77% of biting dogs were owned by the victim’s family, a relative or a friend of the family. We want to change that*.

FOR PARENTS, BY PARENTS
We've worked with dogs our entire lives, but it wasn't until we had our first son, JJ, that I realized how difficult this whole "new baby experience" can be for our dogs. We set out to develop an all encompassing course that will turn new and expecting parents into Dog & Baby Gurus.
After our appearances on the Pregnancy Podcast we worked over a hundred families, preparing for their new baby, or already struggling to maintain harmony between their dog and their baby. Their stories and struggles were all unique, but they had one thing in common - they were not alone in struggling. We designed this course through our experiences with these families, and their success. And continue to improve on the course as we gain more insight and knowledge to pass onto you.
