Dogs and Storks
Program Basics: Dogs & Storks is a national program for expecting families with dogs. It is designed to help you plan and prepare for baby's arrival, specifically with your dog(s) in mind. Learn basic dog body language, how to handle the homecoming, critical safety tips and much more. While Dogs & Storks does not take the place of basic obedience training classes nor a childbirth preparation class, it brings the missing elements of each together in one place. Make sure to get off on the right foot, decrease stress and increase harmony in your home by preparing with Dogs & Storks.
Still not sure if this program is right for you? If you live with dogs and are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, a grandparent/aunt/uncle who has infants visit, a childcare provider, a childbirth educator, in the adoption process, or just care about infant & dog issues - this program is applicable and valuable. Even dog experts will be surprised with how much new information they’ll walk away with!
