This week Emiliana talks to Maria Kyle, an Intervention Development Manager at Dogs Trust.

Many families either already have dogs (or fur babies!) when they’re welcoming a new (human!) baby into their home, or they decide to get them for company when their little one is older. We cover what you need to know to keep everyone safe and happy.

The topics we cover on this episode include:

  • Preparing for introducing your newborn to your dog during your pregnancy
  • Keeping your dog and toddlers and older children safe and happy around each other
  • Playdates with other children who may not be used to dogs
  • The importance of seeking reputable advice and guidance
