How to Introduce Another Dog Into Your Home
All over the country, families are expanding their numbers of “four-legged fur-kids” at a growing rate! We are constantly getting questions about how to introduce a new puppy (or older dog) into a home with other existing dogs. Introducing a new dog into your home can be potentially disastrous. Dogs are very territorial animals. Even if your dog is normally sweet and docile, precautions should be taken. Before I take a new dog to my home with an existing dog, the new dog must go to my vet for a thorough check-up. I want to make sure that I am not bringing in fleas, ticks or any type of contagious disease. After this complete check-up then it’s time to introduce the dogs to each other.
