    This book is excellent. I didn’t actually realise how my dog and her habits would make things difficult to have a baby in the house. With the book, I was able to re train her and she is so well behaved now and very happy. Thanks to the author my new baby and Lilo (my fur baby) are best of friends.

    A 'must have' for anyone who owns a dog and is expecting a baby.

    This book is fantastic! If you have a dog and you're pregnant, this is a must read. I learnt so much and it helped prepare us to have a baby in the house and still have time for our first baby (Harvey - our dog!). It's really beautiful and easy to read and follow the instructions. It is a 'must have' for anybody who owns a dog and is expecting a baby.

    As a professional dog trainer I have recommended Tell Your Dog You’re Pregnant to several clients who have bought and loved it. The baby and toy sounds are really important part of the program and is really effective for getting a dog ready for the sounds of a baby. This is a must read for dog owners who are expecting a baby.

    Many people don¿t think about the impact a new baby will have on

    Many people don’t think about the impact a new baby will have on their family dog until they bring their baby home and problems begin to arise. They are surprised and upset when their dog’s behaviour indicates it is uncomfortable with the new addition and the change in household dynamics. Often, the situation escalates quickly to the point where the dog is relegated to the backyard, rehomed or euthanased.

    Dr Kirkham’s comprehensive and informative guide can help families avoid such undesirable outcomes. He provides a proactive plan of action to prepare the dog for the new arrival, along with strategies to address commonly encountered behavioural issues. He alerts families to behavioural signs that indicate when their dog is concerned and he provides suggestions for positive behavioural modification.

    The book is well laid out and easy to read, with a logical progression through the information. Photos and case studies aid in a pleasant reading experience and the CD of common baby sounds contributes another valuable facet.

    As a professional positive reinforcement dog trainer I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Kirkham’s book. It is a valuable resource for prospective parents, as well as for professionals seeking appropriate information to recommend for their clients.
