How to Introduce a New Dog

At Amy’s Adoptables we’re oftentimes asked, “How do I introduce a new dog to our current dog(s)?”

All introductions should occur in a structured, safe environment and at a pace that is comfortable to everyone. Introductions should be thought of as a process, not a one-time, high-stakes encounter. Remember…your current dog(s) (or cat) may not share your eagerness and excitement as you welcome the new member of your family into your home. Plan ahead, go slow, be safe and think “long term”.
