Cribs and Canines – Dog Training For New Parents in Washington DC, Alexandria, and Northern VA

As a new parent, we know you have enough on your mind without worrying about how your dog will react to your new baby. That’s why we created the Cribs and Canines dog training program, a specialized training program that helps your dog adjust to sharing the spotlight and having a new baby in the home.

Before your baby is born, our certified dog trainers will work to eliminate any obedience problems, such as jumping (especially on pregnant mom or baby!), nipping, snatching, destructive habits, or aggressive play. We’ll also work to make the dog comfortable with baby-specific situations, such as heeling alongside a stroller, a baby’s presence, behaving nicely while your attention is focused on the baby, and being gentle with the baby.


Not only does our Cribs and Canines program set your dog up for success, it also helps you learn how to create a consistent environment for your dog and maintain it long after baby comes home.

The Cribs and Canines program is offered to expecting, new, and current parents. We want every member of your growing family to have a safe, happy environment! Call our office at 202.318.1380 or send us an email to get started.
