Pets and New Babies
Laura Nativo teams up with new mom Debbie to talk about the concerns of bringing a dog into the home of a new baby. Debbie, herself, was attacked by a dog when she was a four-year-old and now her husband wants to bring a dog into the house. Laura says you should either bring a dog into the house long before you have a baby, or when the child is a little older, especially because the dog is a huge responsibility. Laura says you should always be attentive of a dog’s body language, especially when there is a new baby in the house. Laura says the key is research before adopting a dog.
