From the back cover:
“The arrival of a new baby will bring about big changes for all members of your household – including the family dog. In fact, even tiny adjustments to your dog’s environment and routine can stress him, altering his perception of his relationship with you and ultimately leading to undesirable behaviors.
And Baby Makes Four offers a multitude of tips and techniques to help you train your dog before your baby’s birth, allowing him to adjust to the impending arrival at a comfortable pace and helping to make the transition seamless when the baby does come home.
And Baby Makes Four also features:
- Trimester-by-trimester guidelines for training your dog to be baby-friendly
- Solutions to common canine problem behaviors that affect parents-to-be
- Positive, reward-based training methods
- Colorful, instructive illustrations
Now that you’re expecting, it’s time to seize the moment! You’ll find that the more you prepare your dog for baby’s arrival in advance, the better they will bond and the better you will be able to enjoy your new role as parent of two bundles of joy.”
