My sister is pregnant and due in Sept. She adopted a dog last summer from a local shelter and I genuinely think he'll be GREAT with kids, I'm just not sure about how he'll be with a tiny baby. I am my sister's 'go-to' person when it comes to dog questions, so I thought I'd start prepping myself for her questions. What are some things my sister and her husband can do to make this an easy transition for the dog? He's about 65 lbs of black and white goofy and is the gentlest dog I have ever seen. He's just a hyper puppy right now. You can tug on his ears and tail and take stuff out of his month and he'll just lick you. The other dog in question is my parent's dog. Well, I guess technically he's my dog, but my mom has kidnapped him and won't let him go. lol. This dog is 8 and has not been exposed to many kids. He's not really a fan of kids or strangers. I told my mom, the best we can probably hope for with him is avoidence. He doesn't like people pulling on him and he's really good with "drop it," but if you try to take something from him he's likely to growl and possibly snap. The good news with this is that he doesn't really chew on toys or bones any more and he's normally pretty content to just lay on the couch and survey the living room. With this dog, he's old and grouchy and we didn't do enough to correct his behavior when he was a puppy and now we're needing to either fix it, or find a way to work around it. Any good books or websites I could suggest to my sister? Thanks!
