    Default Baby on the way

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm looking for suggestions on how to prepare our 10mth old puppy for our new arrival due early December.

    Bailey will be 14mths when our 1st baby arrives and I'm not sure how to prepare him.
    He is completely spoilt rotten, our 1st dog and is treated like a baby, he is always with one of us and more or less has the run of the house, the only good thing is that he sleeps downstairs in the kitchen.

    Any tips/info, book or web suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    I'm also interested in this as we have a baby due in December and 3 Cavaliers and an English Bulldog! I think, if you do a search you will find several old threads on this topic.

    I've heard a lot of good feedback about this book, although I've never read it myself......

    Thanks, Pat-- reading the reviews now! Will probably order a copy. Gosh-- so much to get ready for.... it's a little overwhelming! Haven't even started on the nursery yet!

    Congratulations, both of you! How exciting! No advise here either. And Anne, I've seen pictures, and I doubt anyone needed to ask you that question!

    Congrats to you both!! I have no advice here...probably to just be prepared for a little hiccup in things like training and potty training. Similar to adding another dog into the house I would assume, so I wouldnt freak out if that happened, just go with it and trust it will all settle again. The good news is Cavs are so wonderful with children!! Once you have the nursery set up, I would let the dog (maybe on a leash) have a sniff of all the new things, let him see change little by little. And just share the love around
