So many families I work with have sweet animals! I love that this account #Repost @caitmhimms
helps to teach parents how to prepare for safe dog/baby interaction. 🐶💖🐶 ・・・
Terrible vid but sharing one more of me and Mads practicing with the fake baby + crying sounds. I’m rewarding her intermittently with low value treats and giving her direction (e.g “go to your place”).
🔈My “Baby & Dog Prep” series is almost finished, but I will keep sharing vids as the dynamics between Maddie and Leah evolve (new stages in a baby’s development — such as becoming mobile, getting ready to sit up, crawl, walk etc. require preparation and management!) 👍🏻 We’re continuing our work with the great team at Family Paws Parent Education so I’m happy to share our journey with you guys.
Beyond that though, look forward to posts on @nycacc
adoptable pups because I’ve officially been cleared by my doctor to go back to the shelter (wahoo!)...and what better way to celebrate than a very special holiday themed photo shoot tomorrow! 🙌🏻🐶🙌🏻🐶 Stay tuned!
