So, purely out of curiousity, I wanted to see what everyone thought of the "right" way to introduce dogs to each other. I have heard maaany different opinions on this. For instance: --Keep new dog kennelled for the first 2+ weeks so that new dogs can investigate, but not interact. New dog and current dogs are not loose together or even on-leash together for a while. Then walk dogs together. Then have one dog fenced and other on the other side so they are safely separated, but can interact some. Then have both dogs loose in yard. (All over a couple months' period of time.) --Just walk dogs together. --Just put them together and "let them work it out." --Also, if they DO fight, let them at first. If you stop them from having a tiff, they have not worked out their pecking order and therefore will have arguements continuously until you allow them to figure out who's on top. NONE of these are my opinions, by the way. These are just a few of the things I have heard about introducing new dogs. SO, what does everyone else think? How do you introduce new furry additions to the household?
