“The dog was created especially for children. He is the God of frolic.” – Henry Ward BeecherYour dog has gotten used to being your “baby,” but soon you’ll be bringing an actual baby person into your family, home and life. Have you prepared your fur baby for the arrival of a new human “sibling”? Or maybe your baby has passed the one-year mark. How will you ensure that doggie knows how to respond to your toddler’s increasing mobility and curiosity? Through our Dog & Baby classes, Aunt Penny can answer these questions to help your baby and dog develop close bonds of love and lifelong friendship. A licensed Family Paws™ Parent Education presenter, Aunt Penny teaches both the Dogs & Storks™ program (for expectant families) and the Dogs and Toddlers™ program (for families with children between three months and three years old). She provides these classes at Forbes Regional Hospital and Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC (in conjunction with their prenatal care classes) and clients’ homes (as private consultations).
