DOG AND DIAPERS NEW CLASS!
Instructor: Heather Moore
Tuesday, May 15th (4 week class, meets each Tuesday)
Fee: $80; $68 for CAS adopters; (15% discount)
Dogs and Diapers is a class designed for couples who are planning a family, and are expecting or have a new baby. Babies who attend the class can be up to six months and not yet crawling or walking. Dogs will learn useful skills such as walking with the stroller without pulling, lying down while the baby is fed or changed and not jumping up on the baby.
The goal is to reduce stress in daily life with a dog and baby by offering practical but not time-consuming solutions to problems and to teach parents how to manage interactions safely.
