So with it being just over a week before we get to pick up our new 6 month old pointer puppy Abbie, i've started doing some research on dog-2-dog introductions. We currently have a 6 month old staffy x, who we've had since he was 9 weeks old.
We took Buckley down to meet his new 'sister' at the breeders last week. Abbie was very shy. She made a little snarl at him when he went to jump on top of her, but other than that, Abbie seemed more interested in us humans, and Buckley was more interested in discovering all the new smells. They didn't really have that much one on one time with each other because there was too much excitement everywhere.
My partner seems to think we can just now bring Abbie into our home and it will all be great because they all ready know each other. But then i wasn't even so sure that dogs would remember brief meetings like that? I just want to make sure we do everything right
so i was thinking it might be best to leave buckley at my parents for the day, so my partner and i could spend some alone time with abbie first. my other idea was putting one inside, one outside and then swapping over before letting them be together. or do we think that it would be fine to just bring abbie straight into the house considering they have all ready met??
I'm probably over thinking this way too much! can't help myself! :$
