Preparing a “canine kid” for a baby’s arrival might seem a little silly to some people, but it’s serious business according to vets and animal behaviorists. Expectant parents who don’t help their dog adjust before the new bundle appears may run into trouble down the road, when their furry friend acts out and vies for adult attention.

Have you given any thought as to how you'll prepare your household animals for baby's arrival?  What are you doing to prepare your furry family members?

I have not given this too much thought to be honest... but I need to!  We have a very protective boxer that needs to be eased into this transition!  Thanks for the info!
