In this episode I’m chatting with Debby about her work with KAD to help families with dogs having the support they need to make sure kids and dogs can understand each other and have all the right introduction and management. In this episode we talk about how to get ready for a new dog in a family with children, if is better to pick a rescue or a breeder puppy, what breeds are the most likely to be compatible to a life with children and of course what are the most common problems with Border Collies and Children that both me and Debby have come across as dog trainers.

Martina Miradoli Border Coolie Expert Dog trainer

Hello, my name is Martina Miradoli and I specialise in training Border Collies.

I’ve owned Border Collies for many years and have trained them, along with other herding breeds in every sport and activity available.

This has allowed me to gain invaluable experience and an understanding of these unique dogs and the behavioural challenges that we may have to face as owners.
