We brought home a blanket the baby had used while we were in the hospital so she could smell it and get used to the smell. Our dog is tiny ( a papillon) so her biting or anything wasn't really an issue, although she would get upset when our baby would cry and try to lick her and paw at her. She got over it real quickly, though. I'd say bring the blanket and make sure you don't ignore the dog and make sure all visitors pay attention to them, too.
