How to Act Around Other People and Dogs

A big concern for a new dog owner is how their pet will act around other children and dogs. For example, if you are adding an addition to the family, I.e. a new baby, there might be concern to how the dog will act when the baby arrives. Dogs can sense change, so some families may let the dog sniff the new baby or one of the babies toys. It’s essential to communicate with the pet and let them they are still an important member of the family to avoid confusion.
