What are students saying?
"We are so grateful to Janet for helping us prepare Zephyr, our chocolate lab, for the arrival of our first baby. She provided us with a number of easy to institute tools and routines that we could practice before the baby came – desensitization to common baby noises, skills like sits and stays, and exercise/walk strategies. She also educated us about common risks with babies and dogs. Following Janet’s plan gave us peace of mind that we were doing all we could to ensure that our ‘babies’ would get along and be able to coexist safely."
