Introducing the Dog to the New Baby

by Sean Stevens

Having a dog is a big responsiblity!  They are part of your family, and when your family starts to grow with a baby, there are lots of things to consider.  You don't want your dog to feel left out, and you want the pets and baby to get along.  Preparation is the key.  Dogs and kids go together like cake and ice cream, but they must be introduced properly.  Victoria Stilwell, a well respected dog trainer and host of the TV show "It's Me or The Dog"  has some great advice for you.  http://positively.com/2013/07/16/how-to-safely-introduce-your-dog-to-your-new-baby/
