Babies & Vizslas

I have two sweet, adorable vizslas. Both have been well socialized and handled around other children of various ages. However, I do not have children of my own and my husband and I are in the next phase of our lives in wanting to start a family. Does anyone have any suggestions on ways I can start working with my vizslas now so when the time does come that I bring baby home the transition might go smoothly? Both dogs are used to getting alot of attention from us since we don't have children to occupy our time. I'm worried with the time that the new baby will need that the dogs might start acting up? I want a safe loving environment for both dogs and baby. We consider our dogs part of the family. Any books or articles you might know of and could recommend would be great!

oh! Thank you thank you for the post. I'm sorry, though, I can't help! I'm just happy you asked since my husband and I are in the same situation; but we have just one adorable vizsla...who's just 11 months. And I'm curious how other people handle/juggle both kids and dogs!

You might want to check your local humane society or other training center. Ours has an Introduction to Baby class it does. I've heard the hardest thing is scheduling time for anything but baby. But that always comes from my friends who've never had dogs and don't understand how integral they are to our lives! I think with anything, there has to be a balance for all priorities.

Good Luck and I hope other folks answer.
