Introducing a Dog to a New Baby

If your dog or cat has been your only baby for years, and now you’re bringing home a new baby, you’ll have to prepare your pet. A few weeks before the baby arrives, start spending less time with your pet. Allow him to smell the lotions and powder in the baby’s nursery but don’t let him on the crib or blanket. You can also play recorded baby noises. When your baby comes home, first greet your pet empty handed, then sit in a chair with your baby and cover her head with your hand. Let your pet sniff, but not lick. Before you know it, they’ll be best buddies but never leave the two alone together. Remember to give your pet plenty of attention once your baby is home lots of dog treats, maybe some new dog toys or a long walk will keep him from feeling neglected!

Remember, pets are family!
