KIDS AND DOGS

If you have kids, or dogs, or kids AND dogs, we highly recommend that you complete our Puppy Video Course; it's not just for puppies! You will learn to interpret dog body language, learn some suggestions for setting up your home, what house rules to put into place, how to work out if an interaction should be allowed to continue, and more!

A Dog’s Story – Free App for Apple and Android

My review: This free app is great for teaching kids to interact with

dogs safely. It contains a minimal amount of marketing from Pedigree.

My three-year-old loves to play it, although needs help with reading the 

choices offered through the adventure. A great game for kids of all ages.
