number 2 coming sat.

This will be a post and run but I'll be back later

DH's bulldog Boo is coming to live with us now since MILs landlord will no longer let her have her. Boo is nine and spayed. Ella is 4ish months and not spayed. How do I get them together? KatelynS07 gave me 2 ideas, walking them together as soon as boo gets here and sitting across the room and getting closer with treats. I was just wondering if there are any more suggestions so I can have some back up ides if needed.

Thanks in advance guys!

  • You may also want to look into getting Ella spayed, sometimes unaltered dogs give off those chemical signals and that can be misread by altered dogs.

    don't be the dogs can feed off your nervousness...sometimes it's easier with a pup since the older dog can teach them some manners - pack order sort of thing.

    breathe - it will be ok!

  • I'm trying to get all my nerves out now. I just hate having to move poor boo. She loves MIL her heart was broke when DH moved out so thats why she had her. Plus a drive from SC to TN. And Boo needs alot of work. Alot.

  • You don't have to let them interact right now. I keep my fosters apart from my own dogs for weeks (and in Shelby's case months). You can use babygates and reward them for nice through the gate interactions. Let Boo observe the household dynamic, settle in, and then try the super long walk on leash for meeting later if you are not feeling ready and or you think either of the dogs is giving off negative vibes. I'm a full on nervous nelly and it's ok and smart to take things really slow.

    ok what do I do since Ella can climb over the baby gate? even 2 stacked. And has issues with the crate?
