The first week is the most hectic. These smartypants quickly figure out the routines.

Haha yeah! Planning on a good nights sleep tonight because it will probably be a while before I get another one.

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.
My hair is getting even more grey just thinking about tomorrow. I'm sure it will all be fine, but today, I'm thinking we are nuts for doing this.

wolfy dog 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.

MaggieRoseLee 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!

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?
