Dogs & Toddlers FREE Workshop – Sunday, May 21 from 1-3pm at Dakin Humane Society in Springfield
Babies become mobile quickly and toddlerhood is a whole new adventure! Many dogs become uncomfortable with these rapid changes and increased movements of the baby. Be proactive and plan ahead for success for both the baby and family dog. Dog Aware parents also adjust management and activities to match each stage for both dog and baby. Together we can build lasting bonds based on trust, respect and mutual comfort. This seminar will also share information about what to consider when encountering dogs with your toddler while out and about. Everything you will learn in our Dogs & Toddlers seminar will be valuable with all dogs your family encounters. Registration for this free workshop is required. Please sign up here:
