Living with Kids and Dogs … Without Losing Your Mind

$16.00

A Parent’s Guide to Controlling the Chaos By Colleen Pelar, CPDT Parenting books say control your dog; dog-training books say control your kids. The reality is far more complex and goes way beyond placing blame on either children or dogs for being who they are. A professional dog trainer and mother of three, Pelar provides here a remedy for the human/dog misunderstandings that can lead to dog bites (or worse), especially those involving children. Focusing on the tenets of “relationship, management, and training,” Pelar presents age-specific chapters (from birth to teens) with advice on building good relations between the dog and the child, managing their interactions wisely, and training to prevent problems from arising. Whether bringing home a newborn or counting the days until the youngest goes away to college, parents can take steps to ensure that their home stays safe and tidy for both kids and dogs. Through the use of simple training, baby gates, and common sense, they can learn to keep everyone in the family happy and safe. Colleen Pelar’s book Living with Kids and Dogs . . . Without Losing Your Mind gives parents a guide to managing both their two- and four-legged children.
