Introducing Your New Cockapoo Puppy to the Resident Dog

How to Introduce Your New Dog to Your Old Dog

New Cockapoo owners are very excited to bring their new puppy home. If you are currently an owner of another dog then it is not as easy as simply bringing the dog home. Territorial instincts are triggered in the resident dogs when a new puppy comes into the home. There are a few ways to ease the tension that may arise.

Start by separating the dogs beforehand. Be sure the rooms are separated by a door that is kept closed so that they may sniff one another.

Their first meeting should be on neutral territory like a park. Keep one dog confined to an area, use a pen to keep them separated. Once the sniff one another and are calm, remove the gate and allow them to frolick together.
