how to get your dog used to your newborn baby
Now comes the most challenging part of having a dog, or dogs, and a child. This is when all the training you have done so far comes into play and will make your life a lot easier and more enjoyable for all. The following article will teach you how to use your dog in your newborn.

Coming home for the first time

The first step in this process is to come home from the hospital. If you do this correctly then your dog will be more likely to accept your new baby.

When you come home from the hospital, give the mother some clothes of the baby first, such as blankets or clothes. This allows your dog to smell the new "thing" that comes into the house, making it less exotic. Have Dad put the baby outside so that your dog can greet him and start calming him before the baby comes home.
 Then, Mom has to go outside and hold the baby while Dad goes to greet the dog. It is fine to get your dog a little excited, but make sure you calm the baby before coming home. If Mom and Dad are calm and relaxed, when they enter it will move the dog and put him in a little ease. Don't make a big deal out of greeting, but make it a happy one!
 Put the dog on the leash and let it sit and stay so that you have control over entering the mother and baby. When your dog calms down, come home with the baby. Do not let the dog jump on anyone, especially children!
 If he does, give him a firm correction orally and with a quick flick on the leash. Until the dog becomes a danger to the infant, do not use any harsh punishment. Do not kill your dog! If you believe the situation is too much for the dog to handle, put it in your crate or keep it in a room. When the dog is calm, allow it to sniff the child's feet.
 Be very careful not to let the dog get close to the baby's face at first because if he jumps or licks too hard, he may accidentally hurt the baby. 
Basically, keep control of it at all times and the chances of something bad happening will be minimal. Make sure that you praise your dog for good behavior. You can also give him high value behavior for good behavior.

By following the above procedures, your dog may be "jealous" even if the dogs don't actually have that feeling. They understand when meditation is reduced or completely gone. Be sure to pay attention to your dog even when possible!
 You made a special time for the child before coming home. When the child is not here and there, set a time to play with him and pay attention to him.
 It shows your dog that he is still part of the family and will still attract attention. It also teaches him to meditate with the child. 
This may seem like a daunting task to achieve because you will not have much energy due to the demand for a baby spot on you, but it is important!

How Your Dog Should Work Around the Child

Sit your dog or lie down while he is near the baby. This will aid the process of teaching the dog "gentle" and promote calm behavior around the child.
 Keeping a leased house will allow you to have extra control over your dog that you may need. Make sure to only leash and be able to monitor the dog when at home, otherwise the dog may be injured by the leash. 
You can also use a leash to teach your dog to walk slowly around the child. When he is doing, be sure to praise him.

It is very important for your dog to respect your child. When your child is small, you need to give your dog respect for your child. Softening the dog and being down around the baby helps to teach the dog to respect the baby. 
As your child grows, you can interact with your child and do different activities with your dog to teach your dog that the child is more packed than he or she is.

When your dog has to pay attention

A good time to pay attention to your dog is when you are putting your baby outside when the baby is on its blanket or in its swing, or when you are feeding the baby (if you can avoid both tasks at once Huh!). 
You can give your dog during every aspect of how to treat a child, such as when you are eating, you are changing, holding or playing with your child. Then, it will teach your dog to accept all the various things that you are doing with your child.

Do not push the dog if he pays attention to the new baby. Be sure to keep all children's experiences positive, using praise and high-value behavior when possible. Encourage calm, gentle behavior around your baby so that he or she understands the right way to be with the baby. 
If you ignore your dog when the child is outside it can cause feelings of neglect in your dog. This can result in a focus on ill-behaved people, such as stealing, jumping, nailing or barking.

Help! My dog ​​steals from my child and knocks on his highchair!

One thing that drives me crazy is a dog that steals from a child or knocks into a child's equipment. Accidents can be avoided by teaching your dog to stay a short distance from the equipment. Please do not let your dog jump on equipment or with claws. 
This is especially important because the dog may inadvertently knock on swings, strollers and high chairs. Do not allow your dog to climb into baby equipment or lay on baby blankets or clothes. Your dog will leave hair and dirt inside and on them and may damage the equipment. 
When your child is in it, he tries to do the same for your dog. If he lies or steps on your child, your dog may hurt your child or suffocate him.

Please keep your dog away from the high chair! Do not let him clean the food from the chair or the ground. This will eventually give birth to a dog that jumps on a chair and steals food. It is not good practice to allow your child to be in a chair or not!

Nursing and Bottle Feeding

Nursing and bottle feeding is a special time for you and your baby. This is also a time when your dog can become an insect trying to get your attention. This is a good time to use "high value behavior" to reward the dog for good behavior and to teach the dog that it is a happy time, not when the dog feels slighted for lack of attention needed.

You can also use the dog's "spot" or down-stay on your feet while feeding so that the dog remains completely under control, still near you and the baby.

Your bedroom is a quiet place

If you plan to let your child sleep in your bedroom, as many people do, and your dog is allowed to go there, then your dog needs to learn the proper behavior to stay calm and easy there. Keep the dog away from the basinpet and your bed. 
Many people have children in bed with them to sleep or feed and you do not want your dog to pick up or lay the baby, as it can cause injury. If you choose you can teach your dog to come to your bed. Make sure that your dog is always lying on your bed so that you avoid any negative situations. On the same note, teach your dog to get off your bed when asked to do so. It is possible to keep your dog and your baby in your bed at the same time if you are careful and pay attention at all times!

Car ride with baby

It is important to teach your dog how to ride in the car with you and your child. Your dog probably already knows how to ride a car, but it becomes a different experience with a child in the car. Do not allow her to sit in the same seat as your child because you do not have control over the dog while driving.
 Unwanted things can happen, such as stepping on the baby, nailing the child or licking the child when the dog is too close. Babies also make sudden movements and noises and can surprise your dog. If there is space in the rear of your vehicle, it is a good idea to keep the dog there. If you can use the dog for it before your baby arrives, it will be very easy for him to handle the baby in the car, which makes it less likely to feel neglected.
 If you do not have a back room, invest in a dog seatbelt or dog seat (for small dogs) and seat your dog in the front seat when possible. Being able to take your child and your dog out together can be very enjoyable for everyone involved!

What to do if your dog is not ready to live with your child

If your dog grows around the child, it is not ready to be with the child. Don't punish your dog for growing up! When your dog grows up, he is trying to tell you that he is not comfortable with the situation. This is a warning that should be noted as bites as the next bite may come! 

He is giving you a very important message! If you punish him for growing up, he will learn that growing up is unacceptable and you will no longer be warned of what can happen if he is not given the opportunity to walk away from the child. This can turn a potential event into a potentially dangerous situation, such as a bite.

Making extra effort to teach your dog to be around your child will ensure that he grows to accept the child and learns that your child is a part of the family, as is your dog. 
He will soon believe that the child is one of his favorite humans! Your child and your child will grow more and more as time goes by!
