Preparing Your Dog For a Newborn Baby
Expecting a child? Dont wait until she arrives to work with your dog.
At one time, our culture was far more tolerant of dog bites than it is today. When I was a kid, if a dog bit a child, Moms response was, So, what did you do to Nipper to make him bite you? Children were expected to learn how to respect a dogs space, and if Johnnie acquired a few nicks from a dogs teeth in the process, so be it. Today, one bite, even a minor nip, can be a death sentence for a dog. Of course, in the old days, Mom and Dad didnt risk losing their homeowners insurance over a minor dog bite or two, either.
