  • Yep...they can totally sense that you are pregnant. My advice is to speak with a good dog trainer and maybe they can help you establish more of an alpha role. Because when the baby comes, the dog may still have the same behavior or worse...get jealous of all the attention you are giving the baby. This isn't something that I would take lightly. GL

  • Talk to your dog, they may fear being thrown out of the family. Let your pet know he is stil part of the family and don't forget to give him his daily attention and exercise.

    My cat was acting like he was seperating himself from us for a little bit, I made sure he knew he was still our first furry baby and he was fine.

    Pets have been domesticated for thousands of years, connect with your dog and everything should be fine.

    Punishing him may make him go into total outrage.

  • You dont want to punish him for being afraid, just reassure him he is still family. Like any child re-direct negative behavior.

  • My dog started acting weird around me before I even found out I was pregnant. Now I am 7 and a half months he is forever coming to me for cuddles, when I get home he sniffs&licks my bump and he lies on the floor next to me when I go to bed. He has always loved me but has always been more for my SO but now I'm pregger's, he seems to listen and love me more! I already have 3 girls so he is used to sharing me but I still try and make some special time just for me and him so he still feels loved. He is after all, like my son!!

  • That happened with me too. My cat would not leave me alone. He would always lay on my tummy lol. He would be by me and follow me around 24/7. And he hated my mom and boyfriend hehe
