Thread: Wanting to Introduce Another Dog to My Amstaff

  1. #1

    Default Wanting to Introduce Another Dog to My Amstaff

    Please help! My partner and I currently own a 11month old American staffy male and have found a lovely female amstaff who is 13 months old and are hoping to adopt here! They are both purebred and the first time we introduced them on her turf it was a bit touch and go! What is the best way to get these introduced so they can be together??

    Perhaps try introducing them on completely neutral ground, and for only a couple of seconds. Take both for a walk before meeting to tire them out so they are not over-excited.

    Hmm, the best way is to introduce the dogs on completely nuetral territory.

    As in a park, or somewhere like that. They are both in nuetral teritory then, which can make one heck of a difference. Introduce them slowly, and only let them off the lead to play together if they appear to be getting along well. And of course, only if the nuetral territory is a place where you can let them off lead. If it isn't, keep them on leash and have both dogs go for a walk together.

    This 13 month old bitch may have just behaved in a way you have described as 'touch and go' as you tried introducing them on HER territory. But she could also be a little dog aggressive. At least by going to nuetral territory you will have this question ansered.

    All the best.

    Thanks.. I just really like her and am not wanting to get a new puppy so it's great that she's a little older and we don't want to get her and something bad happen back at home so Gunna take it slow! I'm hoping it goes well, I mean do dogs just sometimes NOT get along?

    Fingers crossed it's not the case! We will try tomorrow at the park and see how we go this time! They could make such good friends if they do get along...
