Preparing for Your Newborn
Are you pregnant? Or maybe you just brought a new born home and are worried about how your dog will accept the new family member? At LOMA, we can help your dog get prepared for the arrival of a new baby and all of the changes that go along with your new addition.
Before baby arrives, we help dogs get comfortable with all of the new objects that will be part of your home - car seats, high chairs, bassinets and strollers. We teach dogs to be comfortable around babies by using baby dolls that "cry" and teach them positive associations to these sights and sounds. Believe it or not, some dogs may become overly concerned with a noisy infant and exposing them to these sounds before the infant arrives can greatly reduce stress.
Once a newborn enters the home, most dogs get exercised less. We work with dogs to slow down their routines and help them get comfortable and more relaxed at home. Some dogs also become very interested in newborns, and may obsessively focus attention on them, so we teach them how to ignore the sights and sounds of a baby and follow obedience cues.
We teach behaviors like going to a station, staying in place and relaxing, leaving dropped items (such as pacifiers) and other core skills.
