Hi everyone!
I'm writing because my husband and I are expecting our first child and I'm very anxious. We have 3 dogs (1 Italian Greyhound and 2 Bouvier de Flandres) and I'm just worried how they will respond to the baby's arrival. They're an energetic, protective, and affectionate bunch... but I just worry. How can I properly prepare them for the baby? Any suggestions?
Thank you in advance!

You can do some prep by thinking in advance of necessary changes in routine, what will you do differently when the baby arrives, will you treat them differently? Rule changes, less attention, temporary confinement in a room or from a room, more noise, less noise, etc... and start getting them used to that (in a good way), so that when change comes, it's not such a big surprise.
