Babies Don’t Bark
Hi, I’m Mike. Since May 2016 I have taught a monthly class at a local hospital called Babies Don’t Bark. The class is designed to get expectant families ready to bring their new two-legged kid home to meet the four-legged ones you already have! I have two sons, 18 and 15, who both came home to two very large pooches and have been raised around a lot of dogs ever since. I’ve been a professional dog trainer for the last 10 years. My certification is CPDT-KA (Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Knowledge Assessed). I am also a Canine Good Citizen Evaluator for the American Kennel Club. So, what does all this mean for you? It means that I know a lot about dogs, I make my living from teaching people how to understand and relate to their dogs, and I have two grown kids who survived the process. Here’s the book on what I’ve learned! How do we bring a baby home to a dog? Teaching this subject is a passion of mine. It is simple to do but will require practice, consistency, and frequency on your part to be ready.
