    I have really weird stories to tell on this topic ... too long though. No tips ... I gave up. Two small dogs -- where neither would ever back down.

    simple. get rid of stupid territorial little **** dogs and get a golden retriever or a lab. they will pretty much welcome any other dog that they meet. my golden would be the worst watch dog ever but I never have to worry around other dogs, cats, people, and especially little kids

    Re: Introducing new dogs to resident dogs..,

    What kind of dogs are we talking?

    My family has had bassett hounds and labs for years, usually with the bassett's being mostly house dogs and the labs being mostly outside. It seems to me there is a little fighting for a couple of days until they decide who is the boss and then things calm down.

    However, we did have one set who didn't get along well for years, to the point where the bassett ended up being a house dog because you couldn't trust the lab not to fight with her.

    Two great breeds of canine. You'll have nothing to worry about. Frenchies can be very indignant, but are friendly.

    I've got three dogs. We got two this year. Our first dog is still top dog.


    • Maintain the household structure, sleeping arrangements and areas.
    • Have a place to secure the new dog
    • Feed the resident dog first
    • Keep some favorite toys exclusive to the resident dog
    • Make sure you intervene and make it known that you decide how conflicts are settled and who get what when

    Dogs are pack animals. They will get things worked out as to who is in charge (after you of course).

    Introduce them in a neutral place, like a park etc. Then bring them in when they are familiar with each other.

    make sure you are the leader of the pack dont let the dogs run the place.

    introduce at a neutral location

    dont rush it. take your time.

    as soon as some aggression starts remove the dogs from each other
