We Can Learn A Lot About Parenting From Our Dog

It’s unclear since training your baby like a dog wasn’t widely known or practiced until recently. Jo-Rosie Haffenden, the host of Channel 4’s new show Train Your Baby Like a Dog, appears to be the only one using this technique.

There are a lot of people who are unhappy about the parenting style on the internet, to put it mildly. Haffenden says, “If everyone parented their child the same way we’re training our dogs, we’d end up with much more caring and compassionate human beings.” According to her, she raised her son by using dog-training techniques.

Getting Your Dog Trained

It is possible to parent your pet like how you would parent a human. A dog parent should be authoritative, which means they must have high expectations and be responsive to their pet’s needs. It is a good idea to tell your pet to “drop it” if they have anything they shouldn’t have. After they drop it on their first try, you give them immense, happy praise.

It Is Human Nature To Parent

Using this simple strategy, I made some minor changes in my parenting. “Training” them doesn’t mean I have a clicker or I use a silly voice and say, “Good boy!” My children are more intelligent and have more vocabulary than my dog. Holding them to appropriate standards and speaking concerning them.

Reinforce Positive Behavior

Parenting has always been a positive experience for me. After increasing my positive reinforcement, both my fur and human babies’ positive behaviors improved dramatically. It isn’t always necessary for kids to hear negative feedback, particularly those with ADHD or other neurodivergent conditions.

Keep It Close To Your Heart

Having boundaries is important, too, and staying with them is crucial, no matter what happens. My responsibility is to be consistent if I tell the kids not to watch a movie until the chores are done, but they refuse to cooperate.
