Help Your Dog Adapt To A New Schedule

Until you have a child, you can't imagine how much your schedule will change. And if you are not settled with just one child the demands on your time to increase exponentially as you increase your brood.

Your dog's biological clock won't change, and his daily needs will remain very much intact. He will still get hungry, have to eliminate, and need to play. Although it is understandable that you will forget even your own hygiene, your dog may act out if you forget about him.

If possible, ask a neighbor, a friend, or a family member to step in and take over any or all of your dog-parenting roles, and to fill in as playmate, nurturer, and dog walker. Your dog will be less mystified by the new addition and may take the extra attention to mean that the baby is a magical, not a threatening presence.
