Reviews


"Parents who consider their dogs part of the family will love how therapy and service-dog trainer Edwards ("A Dog Named Boo") documents her management of the relationship between her infant son, Indy, and her three sometimes challenging dogs. She shows how the behavioral guidance required for pet and child is often similar, whimsically referring to Indy s Ferber-style sleep guidance as 'crate training.' More seriously, she emphasizes that even good dogs can make horrible mistakes in sudden moments of stress or fear, injuring children and possibly leading beloved pets to be euthanized. Edwards stresses the importance of recognizing that a new baby represents a huge change in a dog s environment, one requiring careful training and desensitization. She encourages readers to heed her safety maxim: 'When in doubt, get the dog out.' Each chapter is divided in half, with the first part consisting of personal stories, and the second part filled with practical training tips, such as using commands, handling visitors, and watching for dogs social cues. Edwards s understanding of canine psychology will give new parents the confidence to maintain a canine-filled household, with strong pointers on avoiding mishaps and tragedy."

"As an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator and canine behavior consultant, Lisa Edwards clearly understands dogs at the professional level. As a dog owner, she also understands dogs at the personal level how they can teach us to love, and how they can save us from the devastation that results from the loss or a human or animal loved one. The extraordinarily well-written "Please Don't Bite the Baby" provides scientifically sound tips for teaching dogs and children to be safe around each other. It's a must-have for every family with children and dogs."
Mary R. Burch, PhD, AKC Canine Good Citizen Director and Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist
""Please Don't Bite the Baby" is both a pleasant read and a useful instruction manual. Lisa Edwards has produced another gem. This delightful account of her foray in motherhood is also bursting with practical tips for keeping dogs and babies safe. The book includes many sidebars listing helpful tips and practical suggestions. These include basic advice such as how to restrict the dogs to certain areas of the home, leash walking, and coping with guests. There are also suggestions about more specific challenges such as resource guarding, managing Halloween, and the pros and cons of medications. This book will be an invaluable resource for all families who are balancing dogs and children."
