CPDT-KA CEUs: 1.5
IAABC CEUs: 1.5
$35.00

In this final section, Jennifer talks about older kids and dogs. The kids are no longer toddlers, are beginning to have control over their own lives and are creating their own agendas. They are embarking on a journey where they begin to develop a social life and are having friends over to visit.  If only they acted like adults! But they don’t, so we need to help both the children and the dogs to adjust to this change in the family dynamic. If done properly, this can be the most rewarding time in a family’s and dog’s life.  Those that have taken the Dogs & Storks program will have already have heard much of this talk, but there will be new information, as well.

In 2000 The Shryock family adopted their first German Shepherd Rescue dog.  Subsequently Jennifer became involved with the rescue organization as a counselor and trainer finding herself supporting families with babies or young children who, overwhelmed by the challenges of their situation, were often on the verge of surrendering an otherwise beloved dog. As a Mother, dog behavior consultant and teacher…Jennifer recognized a need for support and education for these families and began building resources for new and expecting families through her own business Family Paws.  A consistent need for this specialized service led to the creation of the highly endorsed international program Dogs & Storks® for expecting and adopting families and then years later Dogs & Toddlers™, for families with babies 3 months of age and up.  All of these passions and ideas have led to the creation of Family Paws™ Parent Education now offering programs all of the United States, Canada and beyond!  Jennifer has mentored and supported hundreds of dog trainers all over the world and continues to support families in her community and beyond.
