Our dog Franny, who is a young, mixed breed female, came from a rescue situation and has always been a little shy and insecure. We are expecting a baby and have been worried that she would once again feel displaced. Pam talked to her, and helped her understand her role in the family and what her ‘job’ would be when the baby came. This conversation completely changed her demeanor—she is a confident, hard-working, respectful member of our family, and we have every reason to expect her to take the new addition in stride. She has also developed one of the best senses of humor we know: Instead of trying to figure out if playtime is fun or a dominance game, she spends her energies joking around and teasing us right back!
