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
puppy food - check
frozen raw bones to chew on - check
kong - 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 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.
