MANDY STICKLE, CVT, ON-STAFF PROFESSIONAL TRAINER: Introducing a dog to babies, kids, cats, other dogs, or any other living being for the first time to is very important to do with care. Some dogs are sensitive to new ideas or objects more than other dogs. For the introduction:
1 — Take special care to control the environment. Make the room quiet and calming with no distractions (loud music, extra people, etc.).
2 — Have lots of yummy treats on hand. Start out by giving your dog treats a long distance away from the object (baby, cat, etc.) you are trying to introduce. At this point you should have your dog’s undivided attention.
3 — If your dog does not look stressed or tense and is easily listening to your commands, move closer to the object
4 — If your dog is very relaxed, calm, and under verbal control continue moving forward slowly. Have your dog check in with you every few steps to get a treat. Praise them and talk calmly while doing so.
5 — Any time your dog appears stressed (tense muscles, stiff body, raised hackles, etc.) back up. Do not encourage your dog to move closer. Contact a professional trainer to handle the introduction.
