Teaching Dogs to Live in a Human World
The First National Prenatal Program for Dog lovers!
Preparing families for life with kids and dogs
Just as human siblings need to prepare for a new brother or sister,
your dog needs to prepare, too!  Many times couples feel they must
give up or rehome their canine companion when a new baby
Dogs & Storks™ was created to make it easy for families to
successfully include their dogs as the family grows. Our program
helps more dogs stay with their families forever!

Once the new baby enters the home and sleep deprivation adds to
the many concerns about the family dog, many families feel
helpless and overwhelmed. Frequently dogs are abandoned or re-
homed due to a lack of knowing what resources and support is
Preparing ahead makes all the difference in the world and
Dogs and Storks™ provides consistent and current information
through qualified, licensed presenters by addressing concerns or
behavioral challenges ahead of time, and practicing new routines well
before baby arrives.
That is tail wagging news for dogs everywhere.
Some of the most frequently asked questions are:
•   “How should we introduce our baby to the dog?”
•   “Will my dog be jealous and take it out on the baby?”
•   “What if he won’t accept the baby?”
Some comments from new parents that indicate the need for education:
•   “He just knows the baby is ours and he protects him.”
•   “He is the first one to run when the baby cries … it is so cute.”
•   “We were told to put the baby on the floor and let the dogs sniff him.”
Dogs & Storks offers positive, practical and fun solutions for new and expecting families.
Our programs clear up myths, emphasize realistic expectations and set new parents and
family dogs up for success even before the baby arrives!  
This semi-private 2-hour workshop is bursting with tips and information that gets families
started immediately in preparing for life with a dog and baby under one roof. Families will
