I Need this!
Ideally, by the time the baby comes home, your newborn's presence should be the only change your dog experiences.
Preaparation will give you and your dog the best chance to avoid behavioral problems and create a smooth transition.
Be in Control
You can't always predict how your dog will react to your newborn, but you can have full control during the first meeting.

What Other Parents Are Saying
" Thanks! Your course was great! Lowered my anxiety about the whole thing tenfold! Our sweet girl is now 9 weeks and her 2 older brothers, while interested in her, just relax around her; always having the proper boundaries keeps everyone at ease." -Hunter
We felt so much more comfortable due to the steps we learned in your class!
" We took your MINI COURSE because we have an outdoor reactive dog (angel inside). We didn't know how he would react to the baby. He did so well and we felt so much more comfortable due to the steps we learned in your class! Thank you!" -Alby's parents
I did your course and bringing baby home couldn't have been smoother with two dogs.
"I was nervous because both are overly excited meeting new people, friendly but hyper around kids and no time spent with newborns and one has an obvious prey drive. It's been four weeks and between the baby gates, baby tv, transitioning them out of our bed, I am now comfortable with everyone being in the same room (supervised/ baby always held) and on the same level (dogs allowed at the end of the bed while I hold the baby). They are somewhat interested in the baby in a good way, not overly excited, just calm and kind of curious. I couldn't have gotten to the point without your course!!! A million thanks!" -Britta
Big thank you for your course! We felt infinitely more prepared and confident to bring our baby home.
"The most valuable part was having a well informed plan to share with our family so our early days helpers knew our house rules. We've been letting our sweet, sensitive adopted Pyrenees mix take things at her own pace rather than force any interaction, and know we're building a good foundation. We glowingly recommend your course to all our expectant friends with dogs as a MUST!" -Katie
I already feel more at ease watching the first few videos!
" Thank you! Bought your bundle. We have a 2 year old English Bulldog and our first baby coming in September! I already feel more at ease watching the first few videos" -Shannon
My dog Lola had a scary predatory reaction to my twins when she first met them.
This terrifying experience made me realize that a step-by-step plan for the introduction would help other parents know how to introduce their little one/s to their dog/s safely. Dog Meets Baby was born in April 2020.
It took me much longer to trust Lola around my children. Still, just 3 days later, she was peacefully sleeping in the same room as my twins, safely separated, ignoring the crying, grunting, diaper changes, and feedings. How was it possible?
I'm a trainer, and I knew what to do but what made the BIGGEST difference was having a SOLID FOUNDATION.
Lola was sleeping outside the bedroom. She was comfortable being separated, her obedience training was rock solid, she was comfortable with baby equipment & sounds, and well socialized with infants and toddlers. I am thankful for the time I took to train, prepare and socialize Lola; it has made our life with young kids and dogs much EASIER.
