When dog parents become "real" parents...

What You'll Learn
Discover fun, creative ways to introduce your dog to all the new commotion, equipment and schedule adjustments that come with a new baby, crawling infant and active toddler.

The course's clear and simple explanations, building block approach, and fun, proactive exercises immediately get results while helping to prevent future behavioral issues to ensure everyone's happiness! Your dog will thank you!

Jenifer Vickery, owner of The Pawsitive Dog, has enjoyed helping new and expecting parents and their dogs for over 20 years.  With over 10,000 dogs under her leash and close to a decade of teaching at Isis Parenting, her Barks & Babies training tips are tried and true.  Be sure to bring an open mind and be prepared to receive more useful info and simple tips than you ever imagined!

Barks and Babies is for everyone... students, alumni, new clients and their baby support network.

Please note: Unless you are an approved + dog client, Barks & Babies is a sans-dog seminar. Please leave your "first baby" at home or with a friend while you attend. Thank you!

Chock full of information and based on 20+ years of experience. But … only 2.5 hours. If the average dog spends a decade in your family, that's only 15 minutes of education a year. We're sure you agree;  it takes more than the length of a movie to cover every topic necessary for your dog's success. We recommend this class as a supplement to training and encourage expecting parents to pursue additional training as well, whether at + dog or with another qualified trainer.

Here's what one successful Isis Parenting student had to say about Barks & Babies…


"If you're having a baby and you own a dog, I highly recommend this class! She'll tell you exactly what you need to do (training exercises, crate use) and buy (dog beds, rawhides, marrow bones, collars, etc.) and if you follow orders you will be a responsible and happy dog owner in no time. Zeppo is a different dog - not only well behaved but he seems much happier now that he knows what we expect of him. Jen is amazing."
—Hillary M.
