Let them figure it out. I have 5 dogs bringing my pup home was hard on my Great Dane. Now they get along great. They all get along. Just watch the first few weeks you can tell if something isn't right. Rough play sounds worst than a dog fight. It's 24/7 supervision I won't stress that enough. I was like a hawk for a month straight worried about my Dane. Esp when he was lying on floor and puppy running around. Now they play he jumps on my Dane and all is good.

I am going to try and post a video of them playing together, do any of you know the easiest way to post a video on here?
That way you guys can watch and see what your opinion is.

|Blanketback||I think it totally depends on how roughly Sage plays with Ryker, and how much of pain in the butt Ryker is with Sage. I let my puppy have free access to DH's AmBull when he was 8 weeks old, but I'd redirect him when he started treating her like a toy. On the other hand, I didn't let that same pup off his leash when he was around my neighbor's 8 week old puppy, when he was around a year old. They played, but I did control how much. I waited until that puppy was 16 weeks old before they played off leash. My pup was just too rough to play with such a baby puppy. Good luck, your home sounds like a fun place to be!|

In fact Midnite still tries eating the puppy. He isn't hurting him, but that is how they play.

|llombardo||He doesn't need to meet other dogs. The exposure of other dogs is what your looking for. Obedience class, walking through the park,etc. by all means if you know someone with a stable dog, that is different then strange dogs.|
