The combination of dogs, babies and children can be challenging and sometimes stressful. As a parent and professional dog trainer I understand and I can help you create safe, harmonious relationships between your dog and your children.
I'm very proud to be Scotland’s first, and currently only, licensed educator of the Dogs & Storks and Dogs & Toddlers programmes run by Family Paws Parent Education.

Having a baby is a life changing experience for everyone including the family dog. Preparation in advance will decrease stress, increase success and help you avoid potential problems.
Things to consider include -
These consultations offer positive, practical solutions to the challenges that can arise when dogs and children are in the mix.
Dogs & Storks / Dogs & Toddlers Consultation (1.5 hrs approx) £100
DOG SAFETY PRESENTATIONS
When most people think about dogs biting children they think of a strange, aggressive dog running up to their child in the park and attacking. But did you know that 77% of dog bites to children come from the family's own dog or a friend's dog? Teaching children to recognise when a dog should be left alone can prevent the vast majority of dog bites.
Fun, interactive presentations for nursery and primary school aged children teaching them how to be safe around dogs. The sessions teach them what to do if a dog approaches then, how they should approach a dog, what dogs are trying to tell us with their bodies, how to pet a dog etc. These presentations are available as private, in home consultations for you and your children or as group presentations for nurseries, schools, youth groups etc.
Dog Stars (1 hr private in home consultation/private nurseries etc) £55
Charitable groups/Primary Schools - a limited number of free presentations are available. Please get in touch for further details
