Step by step instructions to Prepare Your Dog for Your Newborn Baby




Many people are concerned about how their dogs treat their children in their lives. Many owners are considering getting rid of pets because of fears that they will hurt their child. Most dogs when treated, trained well and properly, can handle life with a very good newborn.

 Children who grow up at home with pets learn to respect and love animals, and most importantly respect life. As children get older they can learn responsibility by helping to care for animals. Children and pets make great companions when they are raised well and properly and learn to behave with each other.


Having children can cause problems for both humans and dogs, as the dog tends to be treated differently. This causes the dog to become spoiled and difficult to handle. Others become very stressed and punish the dog for its inquisitive behavior towards the child. They may be jealous "if they are not equipped to deal with the loss of this new child." If you are willing to take the effort and time to prepare your pets for new access, everyone can live in harmony.

Sometimes dogs become overly protective of a child. Many owners enjoy and prefer the dog to be a guardian of the child. Although it is normal for a dog to become protective of the child, it is dangerous that the dog becomes over-protected and does not allow anyone near the child. All the above can lead to the dog being driven out of the house!

As you prepare to bring a child home, you need to prepare the dog for himself in advance. Although most dogs will be very gentle with a child, many dogs do not see children as humans because of their size, smell and the noise they make. By spending time to give your dog some love and attention, you should be fine and do not resort to bad behavior to attract your attention. You need to prepare and teach your dog for what lies ahead. This will ensure their willingness to accept new family members with open and loving feet.

Using sedative or prescription medications is also an option to help make your dog's behavior easier. You can talk to your veterinarian to inquire about these products and the implications of their use.

Please, always be aware that your dog is an animal and that animals can harm a child, intentionally or unintentionally. No matter how well you act or love your dog do not leave your dog alone with your child! I can't emphasize the importance of this enough. Accidents can occur. You do not want to hurt your baby or you should get rid of your dog because of an unfortunate accident, perhaps it can be avoided.

If you are not sure that your dog will accept your new baby, please seek advice from a professional trainer or behavior specialist before making any decisions.

Your behavior with and around your dog matters. It can make or break a dog's acceptance and respect for your child. If you act as a leader, you will be treated as a leader. You want your dog to respect everyone in your home, including your child. You should learn to respect your dog for the child. This will make life easier for everyone involved.




Be firm but fair

Don't let your dog get away with things, try to make any corrections as nice as possible, but make sure they are effective. Try to enjoy with your dog and training - anyone needs to enjoy it or no one wants to keep going!

Tone your voice

Don't scream at your dog! Communicate the meaning of the voice - match your voice with what you say to your dog. The commands should be short and short, with a low voice. Your voice should not rise whenever you give the order. Don't ask your dog a question! You won't get the answer you want! When you give praise, you seem to mean it! It should be the opposite - higher than Hamas and Hamas. If your dog is overly excited when you praise him, dilute it a little. Your dog will still understand that he is doing a good job, but he will be less likely to get around and crazy.

Be calm and firm

Our dogs feed our energies and emotions. This affects their behaviors and reactions. If we feel comfortable and confident, our dogs will feel the same thing, know that we do their part, and they don't have to lead us.


Use a crate

If your dog doesn't use a crate, it's time to start. A crate is not stiff, it can actually be a wonderful and safe place for your dog. Restricting your dog to certain times, such as bedtime, is no different than putting your child in his or her own bed. It is actually very easy to teach your dog to accept falling into a crate. Most people think that a dog that has never used a box before will have difficulty, but this is not true. My older dog started using the box when they were 6 and 7 years old, as my son started crawling and exploring. This allowed me to know that my child and my dog were safe. Your child can hurt your dog as easily as it can harm your dog. The problem lies in the fact that if your dog poses the least threat to your child or even unintentionally harms your child, it is your dog's fault. It is unfair for a dog that such a thing happens because you were not supervising the two at all times!

Elimination of bad morals-

Bad morals cannot be accepted because they can be dangerous to your child. Jumping and tossing are behaviors that must be stopped. Robbery and tough play also need to be put in the cradle immediately.

Teach your dog how to be gentle and calm, by praising and treating this behavior.
Work commands in everyday life and play make listening easy for your dog. It becomes normal for the dog and the dog is unlikely to be out of control. It's also useful for you, as it makes sure you train your dog every day, making you a leader.

Exercise is the key to good behavior

 Exercise is essential for your dog. This ensures that your dog's behavior will be better because it does not have the energy to misbehave! If you don't have enough time to walk for miles, using a dog backpack can make walking a short walk more like a long walk for your dog. Which will help in her brain fatigue, If you evenly balance some weight on each side, such as water bottles, it will increase the amount of physical energy your dog spends. It is also important to teach your dog to walk by the stroller. It is very difficult to pull the dog out of control while trying to maneuver a stroller. If you plan to use a baby carrier, ropes, backpack ..., the dog should act on the leash and walk with you, not pull you out. It is a good idea to train on the equipment before the child comes so you can solve any problems.


Conduct regular obedience sessions with your dog so you don't forget her orders and remember that she should listen at all times. Try to make commands in everyday life until they become second nature.

Do you allow dogs on your furniture?

If your dog is currently allowed on furniture, you may want to reconsider this, as your child is likely to be on the furniture a lot. Dog hair can irritate your baby. You also do not want to have to constantly clean. A dog can also accidentally hit a child by jumping on furniture. It is better to restrict access to furniture so that no problems occur.

Lead time for your dog

Make sure to give your dog time away from the baby. Resting times are an effective tool to allow your dog to stay safe as well as when they do something wrong.

Your new schedule and your dog

It's time to reset the dog schedule. Think realistically when you'll get the dog for things like walking, feeding, playing and caring. Try to keep the schedule steady for your dog so that he doesn't feel stressed by the changes that happen before your child arrives. Having as little disturbance as possible will help achieve this goal. Once your dog feels safe, try starting to get slight differences in everyday events. Things don't always go as planned. You can have every intention to stay on time, children do not follow the schedules! Try to stay on schedule, so your dog is allowed some kind of routine. Dogs feel safe when rules and procedures remain the same.
