Introducing new dogs to your home dog can be very challenging. Sometimes it is something you have planned on doing and other times it is unplanned. One of my clients parents who had 1 dog, recently passed away. Now the task of integrating new dogs into their pack fell directly on my client’s shoulders.
That’s a stressful and emotional burden. Imagine, you promised to care for your Mom’s beloved dogs when she passed, not really giving it much thought, and now that day is here.
Sometimes it’s just one dog. Sometimes it’s two or three dogs and it can be a daunting task to go from a comfortable one dog family to a three or four dog pack over night. Wow! All kinds of things can happen if you are not prepared.
