I confess that I had not considered the importance of educating parents about the safety of dogs and babies until I encountered the work of Dogs and Storks. This organization does a wonderful job teaching parents to read a dog's body language and use this infomation to teach children to connect safely to their family pet. This work incorporates HUG Your Baby's parent education resources which teach professionals and the parents they serve how to read the body languge of a newborn. I highly recommend that professionals and parents explore the information and wisdom of this remarkable organization which has discovered how to "Give a HUG" to both the family dog and their baby!
