Posted

INFOGRAPHIC - Kids and Dogs, what you need to know

Your dog is part of the family and to this point has been the baby in the house. Now they are going to have some company and need to be trained to handle it



Know some other useful tips about having both a small child and Dogs in the same home?  Let us know in the comments below or tweet at us: @HotDogCollars.  


Here are those tips in text format for easy copy & paste (just be sure to credit us and the sources above):

  1. BEFORE BRINGING BABY HOME - Make sure the dog has basic obedience skills mastered like sit, stay, leave, drop, and get down.

  2. BEFORE BRINGING BABY HOME - Introduce your pet to new sounds, activities, and toys. Teach the dog what toys are and are not theirs.

  3. BEFORE BRINGING BABY HOME - Change the routine at least a month before baby comes home. Such as feeding, going out, waking up, going to sleep

  4. BEFORE BRINGING BABY HOME - Teach the dog any off limits areas such as the baby's room

  5. BEFORE BRINGING BABY HOME - practice, practice, practice! If your dog just doesnt seem to be learning the necessary skills, get professional help at a local training facility or shelter that provides obedience training

  6. AFTER BRINGING BABY HOME -Make sure the first interaction occurs in a calm, quiet, and safe place. The dog is going to be excited, but make sure it is a positive, curious excitement and not one of defense or aggression

  7. AFTER BRINGING BABY HOME -Leash and restrain the dog after the first few moments of interaction.

  8. AFTER BRINGING BABY HOME -Maintain positive experiences during the times when the baby and dog interact. Lots of petting/cuddling, shared attention, and rewards after the time spent together. Don't just ignore the dog when the baby is in the room.

  9. AFTER BRINGING BABY HOME -PRACTICE the obedience commands, tips, and skills that you put into place before the baby came home

  10. AFTER BRINGING BABY HOME -MOST IMPORTANTLY, if you notice any aggression or misunderstanding on the dogs part of what the baby is (i.e., whats that new squeaky toy crawling around?), get professional help IMMEDIATELY.
