Re: Starting to worry about Dolly and the baby

oh yeah, I can definitely see them being best of friends later (with my kid having lots of extra bruises and a sore bum from being knocked over all the time, she's like a bulldozer lol) :) that's what I love about her. It's hard not knowing her history, because I have no idea where she came from if ...

Re: Starting to worry about Dolly and the baby

Thank you, some days I still feel like I'm doing it all wrong. Dolly was here first, and she is a huge part of our family, I will fight for her the same as I would fight for my son. I don't rule out the thought that I *may* have to put her to sleep because of all of this, but that's future talk and ...

Re: Starting to worry about Dolly and the baby

Great advice, thanks! The best space to make a "Dolly area" I think, would be in our basement, that is where her crate is and she loves it. If I say "Dolly! Crate!" She comes running. We associated it with her food when we were training her for it and she's loved it ever since. W...

Re: Starting to worry about Dolly and the baby

My house is pretty much open concept as I've mentioned, the areas aren't easily cordoned off, we have put up a baby gate in the one place we can and we've kind of pushed a coffee table to a side to mickey mouse some other road block. On the subject of unfair, assuming that I expect Dolly to basicall...

Re: Starting to worry about Dolly and the baby

:( it's getting worst, I think. Now, he's in full out crawl and creep mode, so he'll crawl all over, get to the couches, climb up and creep along. I'm always watching. When he gets too close to the dogs for their comfort, they'll willingly get off the couch and leave, or I'll go and grab the baby an...

Re: Seen on an "About us" page ... please discuss...

I would question exactly what she is implying by the "no dog training method is ever completely “force-free”" statement. I feel about my dogs the same way I feel about my son... If I don't lay a hand on them, no one else will either. I find her whole spiel to be contradictory especially wh...

Re: Starting to worry about Dolly and the baby

:goodpost: Thank you! I think a large part of the problem is the walker, but it's not that it makes noise or is bulky, it's because he can approach her and she's so used to being able to approach him. She MAY be more scared of the walker, but I'm not sure and I don't want to take any chances. So far...

Re: Starting to worry about Dolly and the baby

Semper I never had an issue with him getting nervous, but would still separate him if I felt that the baby was being to annoying, or if she would not stop trying to climb on him. I think that it is important to train the kid to respect the dog's space, but until they are old enough to respect some ...

Re: Starting to worry about Dolly and the baby

She pretty much avoids him when he's not in the walker. She's not as nervous, but she knows he can't really get near her without his wheels. If I throw the walker around, she will be nervous, loud sounds, loud voices, clapping, and anything of the likes makes her nervous, usually it's just the tail ...

Starting to worry about Dolly and the baby

I'm sure the whole dog and baby things has been discussed up and down throughout the years, but I'm looking for responses that are more relevant to my situation than to THE situation on a whole. Dolly doesn't mind babies. I'd go so far as to say that she likes the little little ones. Kael is now 8 m...

pretty sure pet trades aren't allowed on the boards. Hope you can find them a home though.
