If you are thinking about adopting a second pet, our friends at Dogster have five things you may want to consider to make sure you’re prepared. For instance, just like with children, pets don’t necessarily reinforce each other’s good habits, and multiples can get into twice as much mischief without proper training.

If you decide to take the plunge and expand your family, our friends at the ASPCA® offer these great tips for introducing cats to cats, dogs to dogs, a new cat to your dog, and even a new dog to your cat.

Babies can baffle our pets, so it is best for you to be well informed before you bring home your new bundle of joy to meet your furry companions. Our friends at the ASPCA® offer some helpful tips on introducing your baby to both your dog and cat.

Additionally, you might want to check out these 5 myths about dogs and babies provided by Petside. One common misconception the article counters is that training begins when your baby comes home. Instead, you should start teaching your dog commands and mixing up your pup’s routine when you find out a baby is on the way to ensure an easier transition for all involved.
