Dog and Baby ClassesFamily 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 for Allegheny Health Network and Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC, as well as in clients’ homes as private consultations.
“Penny came to our home to assist in training and infant introduction with our Golden Retriever, Gary. Gary is very energetic and Penny was able to focus him to show us his potential. Having just brought our first child home from the hospital, Penny helped to show us ways to make the situation better for everyone involved. Through positive reinforcement, Penny showed us ways to help improve Gary’s impulse control. We are working with him daily and seeing improvement.”
