Quirky Behavior of our dogs is cute until they do them to other people. We may not mind when our dog jumps up on us but when the baby comes home we do not want the dog jumping on the baby. That is something that needs to be addressed before you bring baby home.
Sniff and Tell is important because the dog will be use to the baby scent when it comes home. As you are washing clothes and putting together furniture let your dog sniff and get use to whats happening.
