My toddler Angela and pet dog Storm are the closest of friends. When Angela was just a tiny baby Storm did not really pay any attention, he tend to have the odd interested look but noting more. Once Angela started crawling, Storm started paying attention. Now they help each other and play with each other all day.
I am so happy that baby and dog get along but i guess you would have to judge your own animal on this one.
