19Keeping The Dog’s Routine Predictable Is KEY
It is a known fact that once the baby arrives, then there is no predictability with a newborn. They don't know the difference between day and night and will become hungry and need changing at any time. Additionally, parents will be exhausted while caring for the baby, so
that means they are not going to worry about the dog as much.
However, according to The Conversation, it is crucial that the dog sticks to a predictable routine, especially during a time of upheavals. That means even though you or your partner are not going to be able to walk the dog at the same time each day, make sure you get some help with that. There are dog-sitters, and if you are fortunate enough, you can ask your friends and family to pitch in so that they walk the dog and help keep the dog's routine as predictable as possible.
