Pups n’ Tots is taught through group classes, workshops and privately in home consults.
Pups n’ Tots is a Parent and Child Program that encourages a safe, compassionate, fun and everlasting bond between your baby and dog.
We currently have three group classes available:
Babies (0-12 months)
Establish reliable obedience and manners with your dog for both in the home and out
Learn about the similarities and differences between raising a puppy and baby to ensure effective communication and engagement
Set boundaries and safe spaces in your home for both dog and baby so they feel confident and secure
Learn daily games and activities to do with both baby and dog to establish and maintain a respectful relationship
Discover how to begin the process of teaching empathy and a love for animals at a very early age
Early Movers (12-36 months)
Similar to the Babies program, we teach our dogs and toddlers how to effectively communicate with one another and form an unbreakable bond.
With the introduction of walking and language, the relationship between baby and dog often changes! Ensure this is a smooth transition by teaching both family members (human and canine) respect, empathy and self-soothing techniques.
Set yourself up for success before you bring home the little one!
Establish wrought iron obedience and manners
Prepare your dog for all the changes to come in a fun, positive way.
Learn the best methods for introducing your new baby to your dog.
Make sure your dog doesn’t get pushed aside when life gets crazy with a newborn. We’ll go over everything to consider from changes in family dynamics and house rules to daily routines/activities.
