Welcoming a baby with a pet already in your home can be a challenge, but there are some considerations you should make to make the transition smooth. Lidia Vesterfelt, from Michigan Humane, appeared on “Live in the D” to discuss the best tips for preparing your pet for a baby at home.
Dog obedience is very important before the baby arrives. If not, “investing in a trainer to make sure they’re as ready as possible for the baby to arrive,” Westerfelt told radio host Tati Amre and guest host Aaron Seiler on 102.9 W4 Country. told. Another tip Vesterfelt recommends is keeping a baby doll around because it can help train your pet for good behavior as well as help adjust to the baby.
Westerfelt brought Chevy, a 9-year-old cat who is looking for a forever home that can accommodate two cats because Chevy is attached to another cat at the shelter, Mustang. Whoever adopts today’s Pet of the Week, Mike Morris Law Firm will pay the standard adoption fee.
