I let the dogs have a good sniff of everything as we brought it in―cribs, clothes, etc.―so they knew something was up. I never had any problem at all―and I introduced three babies to many different dogs and cats. When we first brought each baby home, we let the dogs sniff them as we held them. The dogs were very curious but immediately took to all the babies. Very gentle always and sweet, too. And by the time baby begins flinging food from the high chair, it’s a full-fledged love affair! I think a lot of it has to do with the attitude of the parents. It was all very low-key, and we completely expected acceptance from the dogs—which we then got. They never showed signs of jealousy or territoriality in any way.

The animals will learn to wait (probably at the door) for your return.
