Family Paws Parent Educators Are Saying…

Neika Smessaert  ”As a Registered Veterinary Technician for 17 years (training dogs and their humans for 15) and being in this field for 22 years, Family Paws is the program that goes above and beyond for their presenters.  After having children of my own I became interested in dog bite prevention, not only for myself but for my clients.  Most of what I was finding was scare tactic information or outdated advice that I had heard repeated over and over again.  Then I found Jennifer at Family Paws.  She honestly changed my life.  She is such a wealth of information and I continue to learn things from her every single time we talk.  Through her organization she teaches you, giving weekly webinars that not only are interactive but where you learn how to dispense the information in a way that it will be well received.  She walks you through each family milestone, from birth to toddler, so you are well prepared to help those families move through each stage, either as they are going through it or preparing them for what might be coming next.” READ MORE
