With the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge expecting a future prince or princess, their pooch Lupo might not like his new company right away!
So the Banfield Pet Hospital has offered up a few tips for William and Kate to acclimate their new bundle of joy with their precocious pup!
And we can use these tips too!
For starters, train your dog to recognize the sound of infants crying as they will be hearing that sound…A LOT! Reward them with treats and outside play time after they listen to recordings and they will associate the crying with positive behavior.
Which brings us to our second point, avoiding scolding or ignoring your pet. Leaving your pet and baby unattended is an extreme no-no as don't punish the pet in front of your child.
Lastly, introducing your pet to your babe while he or she is on a leash. This way you can monitor unacceptable behavior.
Follow these steps and you'll be one big happy family!
