For years dog trainer Michael Wombacher has worked with expecting dog owners to prevent problems between dogs and children. He has also unfortunately witnessed too many families forced to surrender their beloved family companions because they failed to prepare the dog for the arrival of a new family member. In Good Dog, Happy Baby, Wombacher lays out a twelve-step process that will give families the skills they need to navigate this new era of their lives. These skills include how to evaluate dogs, resolve common behavior problems, and fully prepare dogs for a new baby. This easy-to-use guide, filled with photos and simple instructions, makes a great gift for any expecting family with a dog, whether the dog is perfectly trained or in serious need of behavioral help.

About the Author:

Dog trainer Michael Wombacher has performed tens of thousands of private behavioral consultations. He also lectures, teaches classes, runs a small boarding and training operation, and trains other trainers. His approach focuses on working with, rather than overriding, a dog’s natural drives and instincts. He lives in Oakland, California.

Review:

Detailed training exercises teach dogs to respect critical areas such as the child’s room and the space around the baby, and how to walk next to a stroller, all of which create a safe environment for both baby and pet. Most dog-training books only have a general chapter about babies, making this specialized guide a recommended addition.”
Library Journal

There’s excellent advice in this guide....This book will become a much loved workbook.”
Fit Pregnancy

Well written and edited, with excellent photographs and illustrations.”
