Dog Teaches Baby to Chew (VIDEO)

Here’s a tip for parents coping (or not) with teething time: recruit your dog to help out.

An American family has a YouTube hit with a video showing their five month old learning not from Mum or Dad but from Puggles.

The video shows a gorgeous puppy gnawing on a bone and the baby staring at him intently. Then, as though taking a cue, baby begins to chew and dribble all over his teething toy.

With his eyes fixed on the dog, baby continues to imitate the dog in near perfect sync. As the camera zooms out, another dog can be seen nearby chewing away on its bone.

I think the baby would have learned to chew without the dog . . .
