I'm new to this forum. I found it randomly but seems pretty good so I thought I'd sign up.
So my family have a 6 year old female black labrador cross who is an absolute sweetie pie. We've been considering getting another dog for a while and recently decided to get a lab puppy. We will be getting it soon, so I've been researching the best way to introduce the two dogs.
The tips i've found online are good, but I'm still a little concerned.
My current dog is the sweetest dog in the world and would never bite a human, but she isn't well socialised with other dogs and tends to think any other dog is her enemy on a walk. While I knew her very well and have faith that she will cope with this change, I'm concerned that she will initially show agression towards the puppy like she does with other dogs.
Has anyone had experience with introducing a puppy to an existing dog, or have any tips about this? Are dogs generally more tolerant of puppies than fully grown dogs?
I love my dog to bits and really want this to work out!
