Just wanted to share these pictures of me working one of my dogs, Atlas while dancing around the room with my teething 11 month old daughter. This is a beautiful way to include the dog and baby in an activity together and help keep Atlas stimulated and my daughter occupied! It doesn't have to be weaving through legs or rollover either, if your dog will just do a simple sit or down, doing that around the room in different areas, to music, while holding your baby is a lot of fun!
Keep in mind that it is helpful to TOSS the treat to your dog when doing this so they don't jump up for the food, and the name of the game is fun, so put on your favorite songs, get your dogs favorite goodies out and have a blast! Younger babies that are still in Moby Wraps or Bjorns may not be fully aware, but the rocking of your body to the music is soothing and your dog will be making some really wonderful associations with baby during this time. Just practicing the basic obedience is especially important with the added distraction of the music, the baby and your movements!
