The Homecoming Program
A two hour in-home consultation, focusing on the skills, knowledge and practical challenges involved in creating a safe and loving home for your dog and baby.
The Homecoming Program is ideal for expectant parents who want to learn how to successfully bring their newborn home, and what steps can be taken ahead of time to make the process as stress-free as possible for their dog.
The Homecoming Program includes:
♡ Creating your Homecoming Plan, and setting up your home with your dog's wellbeing in mind.
♡ Understanding your dog's behaviour and body language, including stress singles.
♡ Incorporating Success Stations and Baby-Free-Zones as part of your dog's training plan.
♡ Helping your dog adjust to their new environment and routine before your newborn arrives.
Is your Little One already home?
Congratulations!! Did you know that the Homecoming Phase is actually an ongoing process? Each new milestone reached by your Little One will present a whole new set of challenges for your dog to overcome. Something as simple as your baby's eyesight improving and their neck mussels strengthening, resulting in them holding their head up to make eye contact, can be really unnerving for your four-legged-friend.
It's never too late to go through The Homecoming Program, though if your Little One is about to start crawling you maybe interested in Toddler On The Move instead.
The Homecoming Program is predominately theory based. If you need help with specific training issues, such as improving basic skills, treating separation anxiety, barking or aggressive behaviours, please check out the Big Baby Bundle below.

aka: Three nights of boarding, with a supervised Homecoming.
You've gone through the program, practiced the assignments, and your dog is happily using the Success Stations...but you're still feeling a little apprehensive at the thought of brining your Little One home.
Let me make your Baby's Homecoming as easy as possible:
♡ I will pick up your dog from home before active labour starts.
♡ While you're doing the hard work, we'll be chillin' on the farm, exploring the woods and tidepools, and eating tasty snacks.
♡ Your four-legged-loved-one will be treated to all the comforts of home, plus an awesome collection of toys and food puzzles.
♡ When it's time for your pup to come home I'll be with you every step of the way, helping your dog to settle and adjust to the arrival of their new family member, and I will stay until you and your dog are comfortable.
♡ Free pick-up and drop-off
♡ Three nights of boarding
♡ Supervised Homecoming
Overnight Care Package: $230 plus gst

♡ Being a Mom, I know how hard it can be to meet your baby's needs while there are visitors, so each of our sessions will be carefully planned around your schedule, with plenty of time for feeding and TLC.
