Starting to panic.... New puppy comes home tomorrow!
 
Ok I've done this before. I can do this.... It's been 12 years since I brought home such a young puppy. Both Ivan and Wiggles were older 6-7 months when I got them.

crate - check
toys- check
puppy food - check
frozen raw bones to chew on - check
kong - check
xpen- check

Figured we will lock up the older dogs and let them out one at a time to greet new pup, so he is not overwhelmed with 4 big dogs sniffing at him all at once. I've already introduced wiggles. So I'll start with her.

I don't want to mess this up.

Would it be a better idea to introduce them on neutral territory?

Congrats btw, he's super cute!

If he was older I would. With puppies not yet leashed trained, I've always introduced at home.

Is that wrong?

It's not wrong.

You know your dogs best, if you feel that they will be fine with another puppy/dog coming into your house then go for it.

I have introduced adult dogs to my dog on neutral territory but I have introduced puppies to him at home.

I guess it just depends on your dog's personalities.

Buddy's fine, Tasha is fine, Ivan is the only one I'm slightly concerned about... LOL Wiggles was introduced to him at the rescue. Maybe I should bring him with me to pick the puppy up?

Only thing extra I'd do is REALLY read up on ---> http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...s-puppies.html

I just added 2 movies to the link that show how brilliant these pups can be at such an early age if we know what to do!

Hahahaha I so remember that feeling last July. You will be fine and yes, your life will be turned up side down for a few months. Enjoy... keeps you young.

I am in the middle of this and for sure it is do-able and lovely but once in a while you'll ask yourself how your old dogs did turn into such angels. You just got to do it.
In the past with introducing a new pup I wold get the most dominant dog out first and when that did go well, the others just followed suit. Never had a problem introducing a puppy at home. New adults I took to a neutral place with mine.
