Alyssa Milano preps her dogs for life with a baby

Alyssa Milano and her husband’s dogs, two Australian Shepherds, a German Shepherd, and two Chihuahuas, are being trained to get used to the new baby on the way.

"We have everyone in training right now, and we're going to start working with an empty carriage because I walk my dogs every day by myself," the actress said in an interview with PeoplePets. "I want to be able to do that and the baby at the same time."

On her website, Milano has been posting several pictures of her dogs acclimating themselves with her unborn child.

"We know that they know already, especially my Australian shepherds, because they kind of sniff at my belly obsessively."

In a picture she posted about a month ago of her dog resting his head on her pregnant belly she asks, “Do you think he can hear the baby’s heartbeat?”
