EDIT - I am not looking to re-home our dog so please do not suggest this as it's not an option! I recently had a baby and our dog (lab/lurcher rescue) doesn't really pay him attention. This is fine but sometimes she looks a bit freaked out by him, she gives him a sniff on his hand sometimes and licks it but that's all. She tends to try to avoid him. She has been a nervous dog in the past and she has growled at him a couple of times which I'm a bit worried about. My sister has a toddler and our dog doesn't like him at all and barks constantly when she's around him. She has also 'gone for' him a couple of times but I know it was more of a warning and don't think she would actually bite. This has freaked my partner out and admittedly me too, but we want to try to get her used to little people. I've heard that when dogs aren't exposed to kids as puppies they can be confused by them and not great with them which is what I think has happened. She was 1 when we rescued her and at the time didn't have friends with kids and don't know if her previous owner socialised her with kids. Is there a way of us doing this? Will she just become used to him eventually? She's 6 this year and I'm just worried that when he gets older she will just bark at him all the time and I can tell she's anxious around kids. How can we chill her out? She's such a lovely dog to people and can be difficult with other dogs but desperately just want her to be happy with him and not anxious. Sorry for the long post but just want some help!
