Ep #5: Advocate for Your Doodle Around Children: Even doodle mixes can bite a child, learn how to create a safe relationship between kids and your dog

On this episode, I interview child and dog expert and trainer Michelle Stern, owner of Pooch Parenting.  Michelle helps dispel common and oftentimes dangerous myths surrounding child and dog safety and empowers parents to keep their children safe and their dogs relaxed when combining the two in one household. 

Michelle and I address doodle-specific issues and genetics to consider when looking to add a doodle to your family or to keep in mind when managing and training a doodle around children. 

Supportive and informative, this episode is rich with great takeaways from anyone who has a child who might be near a dog or has a dog who might be near a child!

oh hey there!

I’m Corinne, The Doodle Pro™


I get it.  You’ve tried training your doodle with what worked well with other dogs or for other trainers. 

(Maybe you’ve noticed that didn’t get your doodle as calm or happy as you hoped.)

That’s why The Doodle Pro™ does things differently.

All of my training methods are positive, research-based, and doodle specific. When should a doodle get their first grooming? How do you stop a doodle from barking? How can I stop my doodle from jumping on guests? When should I get a second dog? How do I help my doodle with separation anxiety?
