    1. “Tell Your Dog You’re Pregnant” is a well written and easy to read book on making the introduction between your dog and new baby as smooth and safe as possible. As a Vet, I read the book interested to get some more info on the topic to be able to advise clients and friends, and also know that the text is worth recommending to them (which it is!).Starting with background info such as common myths and problems, how dogs benefit households and some facts about the risks of dogs in general (wh [...]

    2. 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 undesir [...]

    3. Dr. Lewis Kirkham's Guide for Dog Owners Who Are Expecting a Baby offers informative, helpful, and sensible advice to pregnant dog owners. Kirkham provides interesting anecdotes, such as the retriever who was trained not to run to the door and knock when someone rang the doorbell, that illustrate effective training techniques. Kirkham also sets forth a long list of behaviors that indicate a potential problem area for a dog, and then describes how those problems can be addressed.I found this guid [...]

    4. This is the perfect book for pregnant people who have a dog. It taught me everything we needed to know from training our dog to walk with the pram, to stopping him from barking and jumping up at the front door. There is quite a bit of work to do but the directions are very clear to understand and it is quite funny in parts too. The baby and toy noises were a 'spin out' for Maxie (my 'fur' child) but the book explained how to get him used to the sounds so that the first time he heard my newborn c [...]

    5. Expectant parents are bound to enjoy reading "Tell Your Dog You're Pregnant." All potential dog scenarios associated with pregnancy and beyond are covered in this comprehensive book. The striking design and stunning images of dogs and their families are very appealing.Dr Lewis Kirkham's post-graduate veterinary studies in Animal Behaviour shine through in his practical explanations. The CD included with the book provides a variety of baby sounds that readers can work through to desensitise their [...]

    6. As a Veterinarian, expecting my first child, I found "Tell Your Dog You're Pregnant: An essential Guide for Dog Owners Who Are Expecting a Baby" extremely helpful. Our dog is our fur child. After reading this book, I feel more confident that our dog and new baby can live happily together. This book offers great advice, with an easy to follow training programme. I also really enjoyed the case studies in the book, they portrayed real life situations and showed how many problems big and small can b [...]

    7. Great resource! Lots if good things to keep in mind and some great training techniques to implement over these next 12 weeks before baby arrives.

    8. Warning: One of the examples the author provides is of a case of a dog who had aggresive resource guarding behaviors of the bed and couch area. The dog had attacked the father which required stiches. The dog was recommended to be (and was) euthanized rather than risking a dog attack on baby. Due to the bite which had already occurred, rehoming or behavior training with the dog were not considered good options. In my personal opinion, euthanizing your dog as a way of not dealing with unwanted or [...]

    9. This was a quick, concise book with several useful suggestions for preparing a dog for the arrival of a new baby. It comes with access to some other media (including sounds of a baby crying) to help habituate your canine to new stimuli.

    10. As a veterinarian and expectant mom, I adored this book and will start recommending this to all my clients. It is a must read for any expectant parent. It has excellent advice and even made me think of some things we hadn't considered (for instance our dog's water bowl poses a potential drowning hazard to a mobile baby). While the price might initially seem steep, that is because it includes a download of helpful sounds on mp3 for getting your dog accustomed to the noisier life of living with a [...]

    11. I was extremely impressed by the book and its easy to read format, covering just the perfect explanation of how to tell our dogs we were pregnant. I'm a veterinarian myself and I constantly see pets having trouble coping with a new baby in the house. Parents trying so hard to do the right thing by their new baby and their existing pets, but frequently missing the mark, and it's usually the pet that misses out. So when my partner and I discovered we were expecting, we both thought of our much lov [...]

    12. A well written, easy to read book and an absolute essential for any parents-to-be who already have fur kids! As a fellow veterinarian I am thrilled that there is a resource like this available that I can recommend to my clients. I see the stress that a new arrival can cause to both pets and parents alike - dogs becoming destructive, cats urinating in inappropriate places - but the transition can be made much easier with the information provided by Dr Kirkham.I was prompted to look for some infor [...]

    13. In my work as a behavioural dog trainer, I often received calls from families who are about to have a baby and want to train their dog! Often the dog has already displayed behavioural problems and in some cases, the real thrill seekers have a brand new puppy. We are spreading the word about Dr Lewis's book and recommending it to our clients in the hope that people are better informed and can start training their furry family member well in time for their baby's arrival. There is nothing more hea [...]

    14. I found this book to be reader and user friendly. There are lots of important safety tips throughout the book relating to child safety (around dogs) and all of the advice given is easy to follow and very achievable for everyday people without a dog training back ground. I especially like that positive training methods are promoted in this book and that dog owners can read about real life scenarios in the case studies throughout.The book itself is a great size/length and worth it's cost. You will [...]

    15. This great little book is a huge asset to the expectant family with a pet dog. As a veterinarian with an interest in animal behaviour this is a topic that is often raised by clients. This book is written in an easy to understand format and it covers all areas of introducing dogs and babies very well. The Baby sounds CD and its five step program to prepare a dog for a baby's arrival is fabulous. The case studies are a great addition to the book and discuss how commonly encountered problems are de [...]

    16. As a dog trainer I'm in a position to educate people on how to prevent training and behavioural problems arising. This is just obviously so much easier than having to find a solution to a problem that has developed. It is too risky not to plan ahead and act to prevent problems in a household where a baby will be introduced. Dr Kirkham's book "Tell Your Dog You're Pregnant" is easy to read and provides very important advice that, when followed, will ensure that the introduction of a baby to your [...]

    17. I did not find this book helpful in preparing our dog for our first child. I found the training information basic and tasks, like playing the CD of baby sounds, did not influence our pet. Perhaps it's just him. He did have a difficult time with the transition but we've found ways of giving him the attention he desires, such as a dogwalker for longer walks a couple of times during the week. I think for real preparation, you'd need a trainer on-site with you to identify the potential specific issu [...]

    18. I am a veterinarian and highly recommend this book to all my clients who are pregnant or are considering having children. It provides excellent guidelines for managing "fur kids" alongside children, and is based on recent veterinary behavioural science. The desensitisation techniques coupled with the audio files are an excellent way to help your dog adjust to the new noises they will experience when the baby arrives. Any expectant family who have existing dogs should read this book! I look forwa [...]

    19. What a fantastic book. It is well written and very easy to read and understand even for those without a background in medicine/ behavioural science. It is an excellent overview and essential reading for anyone who will be introducing a new child into their house. The use of the case studies was fabulous and allowed us to see how our knowledge from the text could then be applied to real life situations. As a vet myself I will definitely be recommending this book to clients who are adding a human [...]

    20. Lewis Kirkham's book is excellent. It's easy to read, follow and would give the result you want for your family and your dog.The range of sounds he's compiled to prepare the dog is realistic with it's gurgles, sucking noises, crying, rattles, crackles and squeaks. In the huge preparation for a baby, our best friends’ feelings are too often ignored. This is (somewhat) understandable, but the consequences of not preparing your dog can range from sad to catastrophic.Lyndy Scott, BSc BVMS MBA MANZ [...]

    21. I thought this book was very useful for helping people help their dog deal with the transition of introducing a new baby to the house. It gave practical advice, while explaining why problems occur. The information given was easy to understand, and I felt reasonable to follow for people preparing with and dealing with a new baby. As a vet, this is definitely a useful guide which I will be recommending.

    22. This book is such a relief to have on hand! A must-buy for any new mom who owns one or more dogs! So much great information without making you feel overwhelmed! First time mom and now our dogs are much more prepared having read this! Just can't wait for all the family to meet for that very first time!

    23. This book is fantastic in that there are - *Easy step by step instructions*A positive approach for noise sensitive dogsI highly recommend everyone to read this book. This book comes with Baby and Toy sounds CD which is a great tool to have when you are preparing for a new arrival for your four legged friend(s). As I am a positive reinforcement dog trainer, I just love positive approach.

    24. This is a very practical book which I will be happy to recommend to the clients of my veterinary practice. The four-legged family needs to progress slowly through the changes that a new (two-legged) baby brings, just like the parents do, and this book offers practical easy to follow advice to help everybody get along the way we want them too.

    25. There are lots of helpful tips and ideas in this book, beyond the steps we had already heard or thought of to take to prepare our "fur babies" for the arrival of our human baby. With two female Labs, who genuinely love children, we don't anticipate many problems. That said, it never hurts to be prepared for an adjustment period--for all of us.

    26. We didn't know that such a book existed but now we do we will definitely be promoting and encouraging clients and friends of our veterinary practice to read it. Such a sensible, easy to read, thought provoking book that covers points that parents may or may not have thought of. A must for any pending parents that already have a fluffy baby in their home.

    27. As a veterinarian, I was very impressed with this book! It is clear, easy to read, humorous, and written by a vet with further training in Behaviour Medicine. I recommend it to my clients, and certainly would recommend anyone with a dog who is pregnant, have a read and make the adjustments before baby arrives!

    28. Such a clear concise book written by a vet and behaviorist on how to prepare and introduce my baby to my dog. Talks about all the problems that might be seen and how to avoid or treat them. Such a wonderful book and i highly recommend it to any pregnant dog owners or families.

    29. This book is such a relief to have on hand! A must-buy for any new mom who has dogs! So much great information without making you feel overwhelmed! First time mom and owner of two dogs and I feel a lot more prepared having read this!

    30. This is the best book for dog owners who are expecting. The information is easy to understand and very relevant. As a vet nurse and delta accredited dog trainer I recommend this book to all my expecting clients without hesitation.
