It may be quite difficult to understand as a parent, bringing your new born baby home for the first time and your dog is all over the baby. Of course, you would want to know why this happens.
Then the big question comes, why is my dog obsessed with my new born baby? Many dogs see infants as strangers and all of a sudden center of attraction because the attention would no longer be as much as it used to be for the dog and so this could be disconcerting to your dog.
This change can make the dog behave in a strange and unusual manner. The fact still remains that dogs are very friendly and loving creatures and most of these dogs love people a lot, most especially babies.
And this is one reason why they are called man’s best friend. Just like human, dogs are extremely social creatures. All dogs have a mating drive and den instinct which is part of the so called pack drive.
