I like what Adrianne said about family. I think sometimes dogs are smarter than we give them credit for. Riley has a lot of the same issues as Bamm (minus the unpredictable behavior with people he knows) and we have had no issues with baby. I would never trust him with someone else's kids, completely different thing in my opinion. So while he does have strange people and strange dog reactivity and is easily stressed, he has been nothing but gentle with Clarissa.

We didn't introduce him right away and for the first few days her noises stressed him out. He's been so good with her, has this look of happy love on his face just like he would if it was any other member of the family. They both just want to sniff and lick her. So I've been very pleasantly surprised and totally believe in the family connection.

Prepare for the worst but you might be surprised in the end. Obviously we never will leave them alone unsupervised and will not let her "bug" them as she gets older.

And I second whoever said new babies are time consuming. It's been very challenging home alone with two dogs and a new baby. They will feel neglected for the first few weeks so make sure you have a plan in place for that aspect as well.

Feel free to pm me if you want more details on our first few weeks. Lol
