A new baby introduces new sounds and smells into the house, so get your best friend ready before the baby comes home from the hospital.

Step 1: Make the house ready
Add items for your baby to your home – like a crib, a stroller, and baby toys – slowly, so your dog can get used to them.

Step 2: Use a stunt baby
Ask a friend to bring their baby over for a visit. Record the baby’s sounds, including cries, and play them back for the dog in the months leading up to the birth.

Step 3: Change the sleeping arrangements
If your dog sleeps in your room or bed, slowly move them to their own sleeping area. They should be sleeping comfortably in their own spot away from your bedroom and the baby’s room several weeks before the due date.

Tip
Make sure your dog knows the new sleeping arrangement is not a punishment by leaving treats on his bedding.

Step 4: Getting the scent
While mother and baby are still in the hospital, send some worn clothes home to acclimate your dog to the new baby’s scent.

Step 5: Bonding with the baby
While you are playing with the baby, don’t neglect your four-legged friend. As you are holding the baby, talk to your dog and give them plenty of treats.

Did You Know?
Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz hired “Dog Whisperer” Cesar Millan to help their bulldog prepare for their baby.

this is all very well and good but how do you prepare your baby for a dog?
I tried moving the baby into a new room with dog treats but that doesn’t
seem to work.

By just looking at the title, I thought the video was about how to feed a
baby to your dog. Then I thought it was about how to help your dog birth
puppies. Needless to say, I was disappointed.
