"Happy Kids, Happy Dogs is a must-read for expectant parents who own dogs. Shumannfang gives practical and sound advice to help parents keep both children and canines safe and happy. As a mother and a dog-owner, I wish I had read her book before I started my family. I certainly plan to put her strategies to use in my own home."
---Katy Bartlett, M.D., Pediatrician
"Shumannfang's years of training experience, behavioral education and incredible 'doggy intuition' are evidenced in this must read for expectant dog owning families. Happy Kids, Happy Dogs is a well written guide that every expectant dog owning family should read and reread!"
