So tonight we are bringing our kitten home to our 4 year old GSD, she is generally quite calm so hopefully all will go well with a slow introduction but does anyone have any specific tips

Thanks

I've done this several times, with dogs that had vastly different temperment and drives. For me, the thing that worked best was to first show the dog that this new thing was mine! I loved it and cared for it with them watching, then I gently let them see it...sort of like privelidge. My experience has been that when introduced that way, your dog's tend to understand the trust you're giving them and they honor that...depending, of course on the dog and it's drives etc., but it's always worked out for me...
