WATCH: This Beagle Is The Best Baby Sitter I’ve Seen. Wait Until You See What He Does For This Baby


This baby looks like she’s got the perfect big brother. While not every pup is as great a babysitter as Charlie the beagle, there are some things parents can do to help their dog get used to a new baby.

Start by getting your dog to associate the baby with good things. Each time your dog interacts with the baby in a positive way, lavish him with attention, petting, or treats. Try taking the baby along when you walk your dog, play fetch, or do other activities your dog enjoys.

Remember to avoid giving your pup lots of attention while the baby is asleep and try to get him to be calm while the baby is awake. If you give your dog attention when the baby is around, he will learn to be excited for those times.
