Getting your fur baby used to a new ‘real’ baby

Your pet is obviously very important to you and when a new baby comes along it is sometimes a tricky time if this is your first child and your dog has always had your undivided attention. If possible, set aside some time each day to keep to your previous schedule, perhaps a regular walk or a pampering session with Cardiff dog groomers Mucky Pups. This is not the time to change routines, so keep as much the same as you can.

Before the baby arrives, don’t be tempted to spend extra time with your fur baby to ‘make up’ for lack of time later. Keeping to routine is the best way to make the transition easily and keeping your dog’s coat clean and tangle free with a visit to your regular dog grooming salon in Chepstow will mean that you have one chore less to contend with when things get busy. Babies don’t know the meaning of the word schedule, however, so you may feel you want to get your dog used to someone else to walk him before the birth, so you can hand over that part of his care if you need to.
