I cover a lot of medical topics on the show, but I also love to mix in other information about pregnancy, birth & parenting that I think may be helpful for you. This week I have a wonderful episode for all you dog lovers that will help ensure that your dogs and your new baby get along well!
Michelle Stern is a mom, certified dog behavior consultant and trainer, and a former teacher of 16 years. She uses positive-reinforcement based methods for training based on the latest science of animal learning and behavior, and she loves helping families create safe, loving and thriving homes for dogs and humans alike.
Michelle and I talk about why you absolutely need to have a plan for bringing your baby home and introducing them to your dog. We discuss ways to prepare your dog for baby's arrival, how to nip any potentially troublesome habits in the bud, and why it's important to protect your relationship with your dog even as your family changes.
We also chat about dog breeds and what you should look for when you're considering adding a dog to your young family. Michelle is so knowledgeable, practical and fun - I think you all are going to love hearing her expertise!
