My apologies, I have absolutely nothing to do with website. Someone simply shared it on Facebook in a group and thought perhaps someone could benefit from it. I didn't even know it wasn't all free as I didn't investigate it. Sorry to offend anybody. I was only trying to help others.

Thank you! I also think this site is great; I have just been reading through the blog. There is some helpful info and interesting reading for those of us with toddlers and Vizslas.

One thing I would like to see (maybe it is on this website somewhere) is how to work with and teach toddlers to respect dogs' boundaries. Not so much dog training, but more "baby training". So far that is the part I am having trouble with... I try to tell her, for example "No, we don't pull doggies' ears", or "Gus is sleeping; we leave sleeping doggies alone", but at 16 months, she doesn't quite get it , and I am not sure the best way to get the message across at this age.

For what it's worth, the website has a blog, which is free and, personally, I'm really glad I happened to see via this website! (Assuming this is legit and the blog is run by a trained behaviorist, which it appears to be)
