Preparing Your Pooch for Parenthood: Safeguarding Your Fur Baby and Newborn 👶🐾
June 3rd, 2023
Firstly, congratulations! A new addition to your family is on the horizon, and it's a truly magical time. But if you're a pet parent as well, you might have some questions. Will my dog accept the baby? Will my baby be safe? These are legitimate concerns that many expectant parents have, and it's essential to address them
Understand Their World 🐶🌍
To our dogs, we are their entire world. The introduction of a baby is a significant change to their routine, and they might not understand what's happening. Patience and preparation are key to helping them adjust.
Early Prep is the Way to Go 📅👍
Start introducing changes to your dog's routine before the baby arrives. Gradually reduce the amount of time and attention you give them to mimic the changes that will occur when the baby comes. This will help your dog get used to less attention and prevent jealousy.
Create Positive Associations 🐕🦺👶😊
Let your dog associate the baby with positive experiences. Allow them to sniff the baby's clothes or blankets before the baby arrives. Reward your dog with treats and praise when they behave calmly around the baby's belongings.
Teach Basic Commands 🗣️🐕🦺
Ensure your dog knows basic commands like 'sit', 'stay', 'leave it' and 'down'. These commands are helpful in controlling your dog's behavior around the baby.
But what if you need more help navigating this transition? That's where our Paws & Pacifiers Course comes in!
"Creating a harmonious household where both dogs and babies can coexist doesn't happen overnight. It's a journey of careful preparation, respectful introductions, and nurturing mutual understanding.
