Long time reader, first time poster, etc...
I've got a question that i'm sure many people before me have asked (albeit with slightly varying circumstances!) around bringing a puppy into the mix at our place.
We have a 3 y.o. pom/chihuahua male that is used to dominating our household. He seems very protective of us and will have a go at other dogs when he is on the lead or they come into our yard, yet everytime we take him to a doggy day care/groomer/kennels they say he is brilliantly behaved and playful (and we have sneakily observed some of this behaviour without him knowing we were there)...
My question is - how much trouble do you think we would have bringing a pup in? are there better techniques than others to intergrate them? I would imagine ideally a neutral area would be best for them to meet?
Also would we be better off bringing in another male or female?
Really appreciate any help i can get on this, i'm sure you have all heard these type of questions plenty of times before!
