Confidently Say "Yes" to Clients with Children at all Ages and Stages

As Seen In...

Joining The Pooch Parenting Coach Collective will empower you to take on new clients with confidence.

Hi there! I'm Michelle Stern, founder of Pooch Parenting. I'm not just a certified professional dog trainer (CPDT-KA), but I'm a mom and former teacher. I know what it's like to parent kids and dogs at the same time - from personal AND professional experience. And I want to help you to be a better coach for your clients, even if kids aren't in your comfort zone.

Even if Dogs & Kids 

aren't your niche...'d be surprised at how often dogs interact with children. You may get calls because someone's dog growled at the toddler...or worse. If you are lucky, you can help someone prepare their dog for a baby who hasn't arrived yet. Or maybe you work with retirees who have grandchildren or young couples whose friends have kids. 

 This membership will improve your confidence in your cases that currently involve children and will empower you to say "yes" to additional clients in the future.

How it Works

We will meet monthly over Zoom and regularly inside of our Facebook community to discuss your current cases, best practices, and address common objections and challenges your clients may be facing. I'll take you from where you are to where you want to be by giving you clarity on how to best help your family dog clients. And best of all, you'll be with a supportive group of R+ professionals who are learning with you.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What if I don't have many cases involving kids but still want occasional help?
    I currently offer 1-on-1 coaching to dog pros. The cost is $75 for a 30-minute session.
    This membership costs $39/month, 2x less than a single session with me.
    If you want focused attention and can afford it, a consult may be the way to go.
    If you are watching your budget but still want to learn, the membership is a super option.
  • How is this membership different from other existing Dog and Child programs?
    There are very few existing dog and child programs out there.

    One is a course that focuses on dogs and babies/toddlers. It costs several thousand dollars a yearly licensing fee. If this is not your niche, the cost might be prohibitive.

    One program focuses on children and has excellent pre-made lesson plans if you want to teach children directly.

    Another is based in the UK (I am one of her only approved trainers in the USA). Time zones can make this challenging if you are a different part of the world.

    OUR membership is NOT a course. It offers ongoing support with your caseload along with monthly made-for-you handouts you can share with clients. We will be a supportive community to give you feedback that you can use immediately with your clients.
