Grandkids and grandpets--what could go wrong? It seems to depend on humanity. Some animals get treated like people. Some people don't like animals. Other people prioritize their animals over their relatives. There can be many kinds of conflict, and most are avoidable through just a few guiding principles. Emily talks with a grandmother who loves animals, a mom whose pet is not so cool about the grandpets who visit, and an animal behaviorist with observations and advice. In The Stretch It Takes, Emily confesses an important truth about the animals in her life.


Animal Behaviorist Melissa Bannister has an animal training practice, Custom Intelligence Training.
