If you would like to take it a step further, with practiced training you can teach your dog to protect your baby. Many dog breeds have natural protection instincts and are used as guard dogs all over the world. Not all dogs are going to make good protectors. Some might become too aggressive while others might be too timid. Make sure you know your dog well and be patient in the training process. You must be focused and cautious when teaching your dog to protect your baby, and follow careful steps to make sure it protects only when danger is near. If you have difficulties you can always consult a professional trainer.
