Dogs to Diapers is the perfect gift for ANY expecting parent or family member that will have their dogs around babies. This video should be placed on your must read and watch list, right alongside other popular selections such as What to Expect When You’re Expecting. Here’s why:
- You don’t know what you don’t know– For the most part, our society is a reactive rather than proactive one. This means that the majority of dog-owning parents don’t start looking for materials on helping their dogs adjust to their newborn until a situation has already happened. We should always be over-prepared when it comes to the health and safety of our children. Prepare yourself and your dog for life with a newborn and you will be creating a safer environment to bring that baby home to.
- Your love for your dog– I have seen way too many loving families forced to re home their family pet, simply because they did not take the time to prepare it for their newborn. Our dogs are our most loyal friends, and it isn’t fair to send them into a situation blindly. If there is an incident where your dog reacts negatively to your baby or toddler, you will likely be forced to surrender them or, even worse, to put them down if their has been a bite. Watching this video and employing the tips and techniques discussed will ensure that your beloved animal is safe and happy.
- Kids deserve to be raised with a well-mannered pet– Some of my favorite memories growing up are co-existing with my dad and his working dogs. I would often watch him train, feed, and care for these dogs because they were part of our family. The connection between dogs and humans is amazing to witness. If your child has a negative interaction with the family dog, the result could be that they become resentful or timid of dogs throughout their future.
