Janet is passionate about helping families and their pets.  This includes making sure pets are prepared for the arrival of a new baby so that they have an easier adjustment to their new life, as well as ensuring that homes with young children are as safe and happy as they can be.

Janet spends her time at home with her family, including her two daughters aged 2 and 4, and their puppy.

We are so grateful to Janet for helping us prepare Zephyr, our chocolate lab, for the arrival of our first baby. She provided us with a number of easy to institute tools and routines that we could practice before the baby came – desensitization to common baby noises, skills like sits and stays, and exercise/walk strategies. She also educated us about common risks with babies and dogs. Following Janet’s plan gave us peace of mind that we were doing all we could to ensure that our ‘babies’ would get along and be able to coexist safely.
