Welcome to Bringing Home Baby: Preparing Dog and Family For A New Human Baby!


I’m so glad you’re here.

If you’re anything like most expectant parents, you may be a little worried about how your first baby, your dog, will respond to your new human baby.  You’re hoping everything will go perfectly but are still worried about how to meet everyone’s needs and keep everyone safe and happy. Maybe you’re getting lots of advice from others and you don’t know what to listen to or how to navigate these big upcoming life changes. Well-meaning friends and family often offer up advice and you don’t know who to listen to. While well-intentioned, most guidance can be wrong or even make things worse. I know how confusing it can be. That’s why I’ve created this course: to help you prepare your dog and your household for all the upcoming changes so everyone – the humans and the dog – are set up to be successful, safe and happy. Enjoy!
