The Dogs Get To Know The New Baby And Protect It

Dogs can be great companions and protectors of babies, but it’s important to introduce them to the new baby in a safe and controlled manner.

Here are some tips on how to help your dog get to know and protect the new baby:

Gradual introduction: Gradually introduce your dog to the baby, starting with short, supervised visits. Allow the dog to sniff the baby and get used to their scent.

Positive reinforcement: Reward your dog for good behavior around the baby, such as being calm and gentle. This can help to reinforce positive associations with the baby.

Supervision: Always supervise your dog around the baby and never leave them alone together, even if the dog is well-behaved.

Training: Teach your dog basic obedience commands, such as “sit” and “stay,” so you can control their behavior around the baby if needed.

Boundaries: Set boundaries for your dog, such as not allowing them to jump up on the baby or get too close to their face.

Patience: Be patient with your dog as they adjust to the new addition to the family. It may take some time for them to get used to the baby.

By following these tips and being patient and consistent, you can help your dog become a loyal and protective companion for the new baby.
