If you've landed here then chances are you're probably expecting, have recently welcomed a baby into the world or are facing unprecedented challenges with your child and dog. Your dog is already a beloved member of your family, right? So how exactly do you prepare your canine companion for what's to come and tell them you're pregnant? How do you help nurture and encourage a positive relationship between your toddler and dog?

The path to parenthood is super exciting but can be equally exhausting for various reasons. The last thing you want to be worrying about is how your dog will adapt to the arrival of your little one or leaving it to chance that your child and dog will figure things out.

Studies suggest a sad truth that many dogs will be rehomed once a baby is born...and we want to avoid your dog becoming  part of that statistic.  At Nero Dog Training, we're big believers that prevention is always better than intervention. Our motto of ''train don't complain'' equips both ends of the leash to set canine and human up for success.

Our NeroNatal package is a one-stop training station for all things children and dog. We've combined everything we have learned over the years of working in Amsterdam with parents, parents-to-be and their dogs (as well as our own personal experience!) We offer you practical solutions when making the transition from bump to birth and beyond as stress-free as possible.

 - Practical training: useful techniques to promote harmony at home

 - Environmental enrichment and activities
