Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Introducing puppy to the pack   Mon Jan 23, 2017 4:10 pm

Hey guys,

I just wanted a concise outline to bringing home a puppy. Kygo is 3 years old now. The only time I introduced him to a friend's puppy was when I first got him and it didn't go over well. I contribute it to our own body language. Anyway, I am bringing a new baby agouti husky into the house in 6 weeks as his little brother. Looking for some tips on how to do this smoothly.

Start by introducing scent. Take something that smells like Kygo to the pup and visa versa. Let them become familiar with the smell. When you bring pup home, take it in and bath it in the same shampoo you use for Kygo and dry him. Having the scent of the house and you on the puppy will help to ease the transition and make the puppy smell more like it belongs there. Most of all, just be calm about it. Don't let his former reactions cloud how he could react now. If he is good with other dogs, especially small dogs, then all should go well. I would hold puppy and offer Kygo a chance to smell the pup's back for a while and see how it goes. If he gets overly excited pull away and give him time to calm down then represent the pup. Nurture calmness.

Neutral territory.

It's very important not to make your established dog feel like the new dog is an invader.

You want the established dog to be curious about the puppy, not trying to defend it's space/belongings from the puppy. Introduce them gradually in controlled environments. The scent idea that Jenn talked about is a great idea. Never thought about trying that before.
