Bark Busters Offers Tips to Introduce a New Dog to the Pack (Part 2 of 3)
Bringing a new dog into the family is an exciting time for the human “pack” members but can create stress for the non-human pack. This is the second of three training tips to make sure that the process is relaxed and safe for both human and canine members of the pack:
Dog to Dog
Before you bring the new dog (or puppy) home, bring home his scent so your resident pets can be introduced to his smell first. Rub the new dog with a cloth or use a blanket he has slept on and bring it into your home and place it where he will be sleeping.
In addition, be sure both your resident dog and the new dog are up to date on their vaccinations to avoid any risk of infection.
