    ive got 2 dogs and i found they soon got used to it and learnt to stay out of the prams way when they got gently 'bumped' a few times. you could practice walking them with it too.

    Hmm, well I used to walk my two dogs and push the pram... it was a bit of a disaster... many times I had neighbours chasing after dogs for me but they didn't walk well without the pram anyway (one strains at the leash and wants to run, the other drags behind).

    I gather your two are quite used to walks already and reasonably well behaved? I am sure they will get used to it soon enough and know not to get in the way of the pram

    I was wondering about how to walk my 2 dogs with a pram myself! Both of them get a bit excited every time we take them for a walk (which is daily) so we are trying to train them to walk with a loose lead, we have been trying this for a while though and while they are a bit better I don't think we are going to be too successful!

    Lol no they are not that well behaved on the lead lol they both strain to get ahead wen we first get out of the door but they do settle by the time we get to the end of the street. I pik my pram up this weekend so I guess I should take it for a test run and try get them used to it. I just dnt want them to knock it over or anything.

    If they are well behaved, it will work fine & theyll walk beside you. If not, get a carrier for bub to save your stress.

    Took lots of practice for ours boys to 'get it'

    I never trusted our dogs not to be pains in the butt with the pram. They are young and very excitable so I just put on the baby carrier. Much easier (providing you only have one kidlet of course).

    I'm planning on training our boy before buba comes along for a few weeks- so I will look crazy walking with an empty pram and a dog!!!!

    I'd say, definitely start trial runs with the pram and the dogs so they are used to it and you get used to it. Maybe take the dogs into the front yard on the leash and let them get their excitement out of their system a bit before you start walking. My staffy used to go crazy out the front door and drag me for a few houses before he calmed down. I started just walking him around the front yard for a few mins until he calmed down then walked him. He still pulled a bit at first but not as much as before.
    Good luck with it.

    Can still get 3 newborns in a carrier, where there is a will, there is a way
