All in-person prenatal classes, hospital tours and outpatient support groups are canceled until further notice. In the meantime, we are offering this class via a live webinar. Please register for an upcoming date below.
Dogs & Storks offers positive, practical and fun solutions to prepare your family for life with a dog and new baby under one roof. You will learn about the subtle language of dogs, how to recognize “grumble and growl zones,” ways to handle your dog before and after the baby arrives and what type of supervision is expected with children and dogs.
Additionally, we will help debunk myths and address common concerns to help facilitate a smooth transition for when a new baby comes home.
Dogs & Storks is appropriate for any type of household, whether you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, in the adoption process or are a grandparent, aunt or uncle who has infants visiting. The online workshop is also designed for childcare providers and educators. We strongly recommend taking this class a minimum of four months before welcoming baby.
