At the end of the seventh season of the reality TV show The Bachelorette, Ashley Hebert chose J.P. Rosenbaum and accepted his heartfelt marriage proposal. Now that the celebrity couple is preparing to walk down the aisle, Rosenbaum has one last family member to win over: Hebert’s pet yorkie, Boo. After they met for the first time earlier this month, the pint-sized puppy got better acquainted with Rosenbaum and the two seemed to be well on their way to a great relationship. “They’re good. They will be best friends,” the former Bachelorette told People. With plans to relocate Boo to the Big Apple as soon as possible, Hebert is excitedly basking in what seems to be the start of her celebrity love story.

Bachelorette winner Rosenbaum gets along fine with Hebert’s pet, Boo. What do you do if you don’t get along with your partner’s pet?

Cupid’s Advice:

Introducing your new partner to your pet can be a big step in your relationship and love. Pets can sense emotions like fear and anger, so you need to be sure to relax and enjoy yourself. Here are some tips to consider when your love meets your pet:

1. Go on a date that includes the pet: It doesn’t have to be anywhere fancy. A nice picnic at the park along with a few games of fetch is a perfect example. Pack some sandwiches for you and some treats for your furry friend!

2. Spend a little one-on-one time with them: Just like people, pets need uninterrupted attention as well. Offer to take them on a walk for 15 to 20 minutes so they can get used to you without your partner present.
