She's growing! Helping dogs adjust to baby.

Sitting on the floor with your baby allows your dog to become familiar with seeing her at that level. This is important to practice before your baby is 5 months old and beginning to sit up on her own and spending more upright time on the floor. Rewarding your dog for appropriate behavior around you and your baby will allow this to continue. Dogs that are included with full supervision have an easier time adjusting to growing babies milestones.
