I am looking forward to another Baby Meets Bowser presentation at Duke’s Teer House. We talk all about what to do to get your dog ready for a new baby, and how to help the growing baby and dog become friends.
I am always so amazed at the parents-to-be in the audience. They work hard, they’re probably tired, and they have a lot on their minds. But they love their dogs so much, and they already love the baby on the way, such that they are super motivated to get things started off on the right foot. I’ve also noticed over the last few years that people have gotten pretty savvy about dog behavior things that would not have been common knowledge just a few years ago. Pretty neat. I like to think it means people are starting to listen more to what their dogs are trying to tell them.
Besides lecture and Q&A, we use photos and video to learn about dog body language and how to see a bite looong before it happens. If you are interested or know someone who is, see below for the skinny. Can’t make it? Everything from the presentation, including the FAQ’s I’ve gotten over the years, is in Happy Kids, Happy Dogs: Building a Friendship Right from the Start.
