Crawling Babies, Conflicted Dogs: 5 Ways to Decrease Heartbreaking Dilemmas in Your Practice

CE Event Information

  • Description:
    Has a client ever asked you about the best way to introduce their new baby to the dog in the household? Do you wish you could help families learn how to keep their dog and child safe and happy without having to rehome their dog?

    Veterinary professionals are providers of public health. They see families and their dogs on a daily basis; families who are seeking guidance on the best way to prevent problems and maximize welfare. Veterinary professionals are uniquely poised to provide client education for child-dog safety - a community topic that's important to all.

    This webinar provides an excellent opportunity to gain insight from experts as well as develop techniques that can make an immediate difference for a client family. The content will be relevant and practical for every veterinary professional who communicates to clients with children.

    Discussion includes:
    - Considerations and safety plans when bringing a new baby into a dog-owning household
    - How to create opportunities and build a strong and healthy relationship between the dog and child
    - Points to observe during supervision and how to modify plans as the infant grows
