    Question Just a question?

    Hi well in a cupel of months I will be have a baby part time as me and my misses have broken up sadly,
    but my main question is my puppy will get jealous is there any way between now and then that can help prevent it or maybe make it so he won't be so much.

    Thanks heads...

    Yeah, ask your bub's mum to give you some items with the baby's smell on it, so poochy can get used to the smell, that way when you finally have bubs around, the dog will be familiar with his/her smell. Never leave the baby unsupervised with the dog...but other wise, good luck with everything, sorry to hear about your break up.

    My exhusband and I did that when I had my girls, and Attila, our dog back then pretty much had no problems because he was familiar with their smells by the time they were home from hospital...My partner and I just got Oskar desexed, he is 12 months and is still boisterous, so I know what you mean lol.

    My previous dog didn't get jealous of my baby at all. Tiny babies are usually just incredibly boring to most dogs (and some humans, lol). But by the time they start crawling you probably want to make sure your pup learns not to bowl them over. My current dog and a crawling baby - or worse, a toddling baby - would be a bit of worry as she can also get ridiculously boisterous.

    30 odd years ago when I brought bub back from the hospital the first thing I did was let the dog lick the crown of bub's head.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    I would cease worrying, dogs ignore babies till they are crawling and grabbing dog fur.
    Get your training right in next say 9 months before babe crawls and you'll be fine.

    Once babe crawls, you can get problems then. Mine bonded with my babes strongly, and woe betide any grandparent who got too close to the crib. Dog followed my son everywhere, and when my son left home at 2yrs of age, with his dummy and some peanut butter in his packed bag, the dog went with him! lol

    YEp stop worrying, and dont molly coddle.

    Its when weird behaviour starts appearing that the dog goes "wtf?"
    I had a 2 year old, and a hyperactive completely untrianed 6 month old dog when I brought my daughter home.

    As soon as we got home, I sat on the couch with baby. invited the dogs up as I would normally do when sitting there and they had a good sniff etc.

    My only realy advice would be, when the dog goes to sniff baby, dont stop him or get anxious about it. You will cause an issue
