Baby Prep

Growing together

Preparing your pet for the arrival of a new baby is key for a harmonious, safe and relaxed family life. Your life, as well as the life of your cat and dog will change drastically when you are expecting.

Each of your baby’s developmental step can be a new challenge for your pet. They have just now adjusted to the new being in their family, know the new sounds and smells – and now the Baby begins to move, roll, crawl and making new sounds.

We believe in thorough preparation for you and your pet as prevention. Start during your pregnancy to build a sound base for a great future living together with kids and pets. Learning to respect each others needs is crucial. So the family can learn and grow together and enjoy each others company.
