Babies and Dogs
For new parents, bringing baby home is an exciting time. However, for many dogs who have lived the life of luxury with their owners individual attention, when baby comes along it can leave them feeling unsure and put out by the whole experience. Establising the correct training and management can make a significant difference to your family dynamic,” says John. And after all, we do want “man’s best friend” to be baby’s best friend as well!
Unfortunately for some, when baby arrives there is little or no time for your dog.
Your lifestyle will change quite a lot, and you will not have the time you did before to indulge your dog as much as you did in the past.
It is possible to get the balance right for your companion dog if you go about it in the right manner. A large proportion of my work is training dogs how to act and react around children.
Most parents prepare their home well in advance of baby’s arrival, so you should also start training your dog appropriately well in advance.
John has helped many new parents to prepare well in advance of their baby's arrival so it is a safe and happy occasion for all, including your dog.
If you have already bought baby home and you are currently experiencing difficulties in managing the situation now is the time to receive professional help to better manage and reduce the stress to make life happier for you, your family and your companion dog .
To find out how more please feel free to 'contact us' we will be happy to discuss further.
Please also be aware that NO dog should ever be trusted with babies or children, this is without exception.
Some may feel this is a strong statement to make especially when they say they can trust their dog 100% with children, but the fact is there are too many variables that can occur and you must learn how to condition and manage your dog to minimise the problems.
