Review 1 for Help Your Dog Feel The Love For The New Baby

Date:May 11, 2013
Our dog loves kids but I was a little nervous about baby's he's quite an active energetic dog. We were told that sending home a blanket that baby has been in ahead of you with a family member or letting the dog smell the blanket first will give him a chance to get used to the smell a little before. That way he won't go crazy smelling baby when it comes through the door :) Turns out he doesn't care much for little people who can't chase him :)

Review 2 for Help Your Dog Feel The Love For The New Baby

Date:October 17, 2012
I'm a first time mom and a proud owner of two dogs. Me and the little one are living at my parents house so we are sharing my room and for the first 8 months of my pregnancy the pups were in there two. They got used to things changing and almost like they could sense the baby one of my dogs became protective of my stomach and would wrap him self around it while I was watching tv. Naturally I was very nervous bringing our little bundle of joy home for the first time, but with the help of my mom and boyfriend we introduced little man to the dogs. They took to him immediately! Now anytime I come through the door they look for the baby, and when I'm sitting on the couch holding him they come up and give him kisses softly and even cuddle up next to us!

Review 4 for Help Your Dog Feel The Love For The New Baby

Date:May 27, 2012
We are dog lovers! We had an adult Shitzu and had just gotten a new puppy shitzu when I became pregnant. Of course the puppy was full of energy and we were a bit afraid how she would act when we brought our son home. My husband did come home with a blanket that smelled like the baby before we came home and left it on our bed, which is where the dogs sleep. The moment we walked in the door the puppy immediately became a different dog. She was so calm and gentle. I guess she knew exactly what we were holding and her mommy instincts kicked in. My son is 7 months old now and she is always at is side. If she hadn't made that change we were ready to just keep them apart in the house until he got older and could interact safely with the puppy. We have since then gotten another shitzu, the same age as the hyper puppy. She was very energetic but quickly learned that the other 2 dogs were protective of our son and she respected that. My son is all over the place and those dogs love on him constantly. The only time I worry is when they just want to be dogs and play rough with each other. That's when I scoop him up off the floor into is play pen so that they can still be what they are....animals, who hold as big a part of our hearts as our children. Yes they go on vacations with us or if pets are not allowed, we make different plans.

Review 5 for Help Your Dog Feel The Love For The New Baby

Date:February 8, 2012
I would like to see an article on this that is from the point of view of a dog lover. It's kind of harsh to end this with "Time to find the dog a new home" :(

Review 6 for Help Your Dog Feel The Love For The New Baby

Date:January 21, 2012
Perfect explanation!
Ihave a puppy that is one month older then my baby ( they are growin up together) and he always runs by her crib ever time she cry. he has layed by her feet (parental supervision) when she in the car seat. Baby always comes first and he knows that. a up side of haveing a dog is that when my daughter gets older she wont be afraid like some children who are not around dogs as babies.

Review 7 for Help Your Dog Feel The Love For The New Baby

Date:May 15, 2011
the thing is that when your baby comes hope is what shows how much your dog is going to care for that baby.. try to make people be there.. of course if the dog acts aggressive toward anyone that is to active around the baby.. the dog is just trying to protect.. they know that the baby belongs there.. heck when i leave and have someone watching the baby.. i tell her to watch her baby.. she goes straight to the crib and sits there till the baby stirs and then gets someones attention.. or sits there the whole time while i am gone depends on how long i am gone.. my dog is very protective of anyone in the house.. my friend brought her newborn over before my baby was born and she was making sure none of the other kids hurt the baby.. when my baby was born.. she was twice as protective over my baby.. she did not want anyone to hold the baby unless they lived here.. so my advice is the first day home have people over.. and then before anyone else holds the baby give the dog time to get used to the baby before anyone outside of the home holds the baby about two weeks.. in the presence of the dog that is.. now every time my dog walks past the baby she has to kiss her..
