Thread: Teaching 3 Year Old Dog to Like Puppy

    Default Teaching 3 Year Old Dog to Like Puppy

    I have a nearly 3 year old pure-bred staffy, I wanted him to have a friend to play with so I have bought a 8 week old female pure-bred staffy and when I got her home I thought I would introduce them through the screen door, but my dog Mowie went off and was snarling and ripping at the door and window. I went out and let him smell me and lick my hands and tried again after a while this time he was wagging his tail and sniffed at her a bit but still growled at her through the window.

    Can anyone make any suggestions on how to get him to like her? he has been around other male dogs in the past but not many female ones.

    Thanks in advance.

    You should introduce them in a mutual area(like a park, beach, a friends house etc.) so your older dog doesn't feel territorial.
    Introduce them as if they are strangers. Have both on a lead, let them touch noses and so on.
