I bought my Mom a robotic vacuum (Roomba) for Christmas a few years ago. The following year I bought her a stand-alone mixer. To this day, she talks about those two presents because they made her daily life EASIER.
Dog hair everywhere, dog barking, the guilt because you don't have time for your dog anymore.
I am a much happier mom when the robotic vacuum cleans my house, the dog's barking doesn't wake up the kid (white noise machine!), and my dog just spent 30 minutes working on her meal offered in a snuffle mat.

Bringing home a baby is a big change for a dog.
The new sounds, smells, baby items, change of routines, and the actual baby, can be hard on many dogs. And your dog's reaction to all the changes can be hard on you, the new parent.
Life with a well-trained dog and a newborn is so much easier. Knowing your dog is prepared to meet your baby is priceless.
That's why the Dog Meets Baby courses offer expert, step-by-step, guidance to help you train, prepare and introduce your dog to your little one.
