Dog Owners with Toddlers — Humane Society to Offer New Class

Dog - Toddler

The Winnipeg Humane Society is offering a new class specifically targeted at dog owners with toddlers in the household.

“Dogs and Toddlers” is designed for parents of infants starting to crawl and grab at the dog, up to pre-school age children. The program addresses a dog’s reaction to a child’s transition to being able to speed around the house.

“Dogs and Toddlers answers questions all new parents have about their pets,” said Dr. Renee Will, certified professional dog trainer and class instructor. “The class offers advice about common trouble spots between toddlers and dogs in a home, as well as teaching parents to recognize their dog’s body language to keep their children safe.”

The first class is Thursday, May 15 from 7-9 p.m. The cost is $25 per person and pre-registration is required. To register, call (204) 982-3555.
