Like everything in life, communication is key. Make sure your dog knows all of the commands it will need to know in order to keep them from unintentionally harming your baby.
- Teach your dog not to jump up while you are holding the baby in your arms as well as to sit or lay down.
- Practice while holding a doll or another object in your arms like a baby. Keep plenty of treats around to reward your pooch with when they do as they are told.
- Be sure that your dog has a “leave it” command in the event that they get their mouth on one of the baby’s toys.
- Clean toys thoroughly, rinse with water and then dry them off before your baby gets back to playing with it.
