Preparing Your Dog for a Baby

I conducted a seminar this week on preparing your dog for a new born baby. There are many things to cover on this subject but the going theme was to make a plan and stick to it.

Does your dog jump on guests? Does he bark at outside noises? Where these things may have flown under your radar until now, viagra ambulance they will likely be a really big deal in a few months. Decide now what the rules will be and let your dog know what’s expected.

Will your dog be allowed to sleep in the bed? Will you allow him into the nursery? These are things that will be difficult to teach once the baby comes and you are overwhelmed. Teaching your dog that some nights he sleeps on the floor or waits for permission to come into the nursery and then goes to a designated spot like a dog bed, viagra will be much easier to teach now over the next few months rather then all at once while everyone is confused and sleep deprived.

These are just two examples of things you need to be prepared for, but the first step is making the plan. No detail is too small. Bringing a baby home can be stressful on your dog, but it doesn’t need to be. Don’t wait for game time to practice the game.

Dogboy on Bravo!

dogboy_pregnant_in_heels2Over the summer my friend and owner of dog addiction day care in Williamsburg, viagra canada pilule Priti, viagra called and asked if I would want to appear in an episode of a new show called Pregnant in Heals which was being shot for the bravo network. The episode involved a couple with a spoiled little dog who were about to have a baby and were worried about the dog adapting to a little brother or sister. It was a completely surreal experience but one I’m glad I had. I was informed about the dog and owner while in the elevator on the way up to the apartment. When I got off the cameras were already rolling. I must say that the dog did great considering its circumstances and the added commotion of a film crew in her face. I may seem a little “deer in the headlights” at times but I feel like it was a good first experience. Watch me on Pregnant in Heels: Sausage Dog back into Shape
