DoggyDan Podcast 01: Bringing a baby home – dog training
Podcast Show No.1 is available now. This blog post is really to give you an idea of what to expect in my free podcast. I have outlined what it contains below, and if you are not bringing a new baby into the home, then don’t worry… there will be lots more free podcasts coming along very soon.
That’s right, these podcasts are free, packed full of great information and will be covering off everything from getting your dog to come when called, stopping dog aggression, puppy training and helping dogs with separation anxiety. I love dogs, just like you, and this is my way of giving back.
This first show is about something that many of you (and a number of parenting organizations) have requested information about. Bringing home a new baby is a wonderful experience although it can also be a stressful and testing time as you juggle to make everything flow smoothly for everyone in the family.
This podcast provides you firstly with some solid advice in key areas to help you make the initial transition of a baby coming into the home a simple and relaxing experience. Then we look at how to ensure that long term your family unit includes your dog rather than pushing them away.
Here are some of the things I’ve covered off…
How to introduce your baby to your dog
- Some simple pieces of advice to ensure your baby’s safety,
- Why taking your dog for a walk beforehand can make all the difference
- Understanding how you create the energy of the room
Safety of babies around dogs
- Two of the most common reasons a dog will snap
- Why babies, food and dogs can be a dangerous combination
- Space invading toddlers and the importance of a doggy safe place
- Establish rules and boundaries for both your children and your dogs

- How you can use your pram or baby buggy to get your dog to heel 🙂
Helping to establish a bond between your baby and dog
- How feeding time for your baby can become a time for you to relax with your dog
- The importance of staying calm when your baby is screaming

As a father of two young children and a pack leader to 3 dogs I have personally experienced the joys of training both children and dogs using a kind and gentle method. If you are wondering about the similarities between the two then you will enjoy my book “What the dogs taught me about being a parent.” For those of you needing immediate help with your dog training, check out my program The Dog Calming Code!
Say hi to your new family for me…
