Have you ever had to introduce your dog to your baby? This grilling season, we had the pleasure of welcoming a new addition to the family. Everyone had to get use to life with a newborn including our 2 year old boxer Scout. Scout has been missing out on some attention. He lives for belly rubs, games of catch, runs in the park and relaxing on the deck with dad. But you know what? Like a true best friend, Scout hasn’t held it against. He understands and we love him even more. Giving him a few extra Nudges® Grillers and Sizzlers treats hasn’t hurt either.
Now that everyone is adjusting to our new norm, Scout and dad have resumed some of their activities. This week they went running in the park twice. They both came back and “said” it was great but we have to get back in tip top shape. As a reward for their efforts, the Hubs lit the grill. Scout relaxed with his bowl of water and Chicken Nudges® Griller Snacks while the Hubs whipped up a meal on the grill. These are the moments Scout lives for plus he knows there is always a special plate of grilled meat just him.
We used these four tips to introduce Scout to Baby E. Things have gone well and they have already formed a bond. Scout the Protector and his trusty sidekick Baby E.
Introduce dog to baby slowly. Start with telling dog all about the baby that will be joining the family. When the baby arrives, have everyone enjoy family time together for a few minutes at a time. Keep an eye out for your dog’s reaction.
Forget Me Not
Like kids, dogs like attention and routine. Resume normal activities asap so your dog doesn’t feel neglected. Spend a little extra time with them when out for walks or during cuddle time.
Once your dog is comfortable with the changes around the house, set boundaries by gently reminding him not to lick, step on etc. And stick to their routine. Your dog may be seeking to go out more as their way of demanding attention but it’s your job to keep order. Don’t give in. Ok give in every once in a while but don’t over do it.
Give your dog praise for adjusting. Offer treats and extra belly rubs. Lucky for us we discovered the all new Nudges® Grillers and Sizzlers at Walmart. We purchased the Chicken Nudges® Grillers, the Steak Nudges® Grillers and Beef & Cheese Nudges® Sizzlers. Each option is the perfect treat for Scout since he’s a big fan of grilling season especially steaks. Not only are they made with proteins sourced right here in the USA, real meat is the #1 ingredient with no artificial flavors, preservatives or fillers. How’s that for real food inspired.
Your dog will love these treats so try not to over indulge them. Don’t let those cuddles, licks and puppy eyes break you down. Check out all the flavors at nudgesdogtreats.com and let me know which one you think your dog would love the most! Stop by the Nudges Facebook page to see what flavors other families love. We plan to pick up the new Jerky Cuts value size (36oz) the next time we are in Walmart.
