Dogs & Storks: Preparing the Family Dog for Life with Baby

Dogs & StorksTM offers positive, practical, and fun solutions for new parents and expecting families. This is the first national pre-baby program where dogs are the focus. Answering the call of many new parents, this program sets the educational groundwork for success before baby arrives.

This two-hour workshop is bursting with tips and information that gets families started immediately in preparing for life with a dog and a baby under one roof. Families will explore the subtle language of dogs, ways to include their dog before and after baby arrives, and many more tips and ideas that will help with a smooth transition. Classes are held at The Winnipeg Humane Society (45 Hurst Way). Although it is a 2-hour session, we allow extra time for the many questions participants have afterward.

Visit the official Dogs & Storks TM website for on-going support, a blog and more.

dog megaphoneWhat Is My Dog Saying? Understanding Canine Communication

Dogs are talking to us all the time. We can only imagine what they are thinking. We can never know for sure.

The purpose of this presentation is to help you better understand what your canine friends are saying to each other, other animals, and you. The result? You and your dog are more likely to be “on the same page”, resulting in better adoption matches, more effective training, wiser decisions about dog park and daycare play, and an enhanced ability to work with your dog in stressful situations.

Class is held in The WHS classroom, located at 45 Hurst Way. Note: this class is for humans only!

Dogs & Toddlers

There might not be anything cuter than a toddler with a puppy or dog, but precautions must be taken. What at first might seem like a fun play session could turn into a dangerous situation for either your child or dog.

Dogs & Toddlers was created by a certified dog behaviour consultant and mother of four. It is an International program that helps families with dogs and toddler-aged children create safety and harmony at home. The program offers positive, practical, and fun solutions to challenges that often arise with dogs during your child’s early development years.

Workshop Outline:

  • Answers to your questions about toddlers and safety
  • Must-know information for parents who have toddler-aged children and dogs
  • Advice about common trouble spots between toddlers and dogs in a home
  • Practical solutions, from do-it-yourself techniques to hands-on help
  • Insight into how your changing family dynamics may affect your dog
