The Pooch Parenting Podcast is a podcast for parents with dogs. Living with kids and dogs at the same time can feel like a circus - I know because I'm a mom and have lived it too. Join us as we interview a variety of parenting and dog experts, along with parents to discuss topics that will make parenting with dogs easier, safer and less chaotic. If you enjoy these episodes or feel like they have helped your family, feel free to buy me a coffee as a way of saying "Thanks!" https://www.buymeacoffee.com/PoochParenting

How to Choose the Right Family Dog with Kim Brophey
In this episode of the Pooch Parenting Podcast, I talk with Kim Brophey, the author of the book Meet Your Dog.

By understanding how a dog's experiences, environment, training and physical needs all interact, families can understand dog behavior better. It's not all about "how you raise them."
