Okay,did any of you have a dog before the birth of your child. And if so how has the do reacted to the child.

The reason I am asking is because my son has begun to stand and walk a little when holding on to thinks. I am just wondering what behaviors should i be aware of with my dog that indicate I should give her away. I have a pom and she is about 4yrs old and she has been get with Brennan up until he started moving. Now she seem a little skidies

added note my son is never left alone with the dog

What kind of dog do you have? We have a basenji mix and a border collie. We haven't had any problems. As long as you haven't sheltered the dogs from the child since day one, you shouldn't have a problem. The dogs most likely will protect the child- esp being a female dog. Our dogs love my daughter, who is very mobile. They have always been curious with sniffing her and stuff. Tippie- the border collie- actually lets her pull her tail and follow her around.

I guess, just make sure your dog is cool with it. a lot of times it depends on the temperament of the dog to begin with. If she's a good temperament, then you should be good! Good Luck!
