Muttigrees At Home for Families Is Here!

Muttigrees At Home CoverWe designed the brand new Muttigrees At Home as a fun resource to help parents and children become more aware, confident, and effective. It is inspired by new research on the benefits of canine-based activities that clearly shows the transformative power of the dog. You don’t actually need to have a dog to use Muttigrees At Home —just looking at pictures of a dog works to bring about change!  Parents will find simple ways to help their child learn to care, find friends and improve academically.

We know parents and caregivers are their children’s first and best teachers, not only in infancy and the early years before school, but throughout childhood and adolescence. Children see how their parents talk to people, how they act when they’re upset or stressed, and how caring they are. But in this busy, stressed, never-enough-time world it’s very easy for parents to overlook their own emotional needs. So, in Muttigrees At Home we offer parents and caregivers helpful information focused specifically on them — ideas and pointers to help them be their children’s best role models.

Throughout the five sections — Achieving Awareness, Finding Feelings, Encouraging Empathy, Cultivating Cooperation, and Dealing with Decisions — we give vocabulary words and discussion points that develop children’s social and emotional skills and build on each other. Parents don’t have to do all the activities; they can just choose one or two to start. Parents really love the Daily Routines chart that begins each section — it gives discussion ideas and thoughtful ways to help children develop their emotional skills during routine activities that happen every day.

Muttigrees At Home is available as a complimentary download for a limited time. Click here for more information on how to download.
