Dogs and Newborn Babies. How will my dog behave around the new baby?
So you have gotten a new addition to the family, and you are wondering how your dog will be handling it.
It is understandable that you are going through a few worries and thoughts that pop up from time to time.
I have 3 Kids, 3 dogs and 3cats and if you handle and keep in mind a few rules I can assure you that dogs and newborn babies get on well together.
Believe me, there is nothing wrong with your worries we love our dogs, and we love our kids, in most of the cases dogs and babies are great together.
When Life starts to change for you and your dog.
Keep in Mind that after the baby arrives not only your life is also changing the dog’s life is changing.
One thing you should be aware that your dog will get less attention when the baby is here, and you should start doing so already during the time you are pregnant.
Dogs are sensitive, and your dog knows already something is up, so be aware of your own energy. Pregnancy affects the entire household. Even if you feel anxious, excited, or worried. Always keep in mind that your dog will mirror your emotions.
Dogs are sensitive and can feel that something is on.
My dogs could tell every time I was pregnant, they started to act differently around me and they were so protective of me.
They followed me everywhere, and when we went out for a walk somehow, they knew I am not that fast with my bigger belly, and they slowed down always watching out for me.
Believe it or not but my youngest one still loves the touch of fur on his face. This comes because our Rottweiler was lying with his head on my stomach before my youngest son was born.
Whenever I was sitting down, Bonnie came along and put her head onto my tummy.
