Suggestions please

Post by Two89w on Sat Jun 04 2016, 10:39

We took Rosie to see the new adoptee today at the pound before we pick him (Eddy) up on Wednesday.

She gave him a bit of sniff and was pretty stand off-ish towards him, overall seemed pretty disinterested.

We are thinking that Rosie maybe a little put out by Eddy's presence in her environment and we are looking for some suggestions on how to keep her onside.

Also with Eddy being in his new home what can we do to help him with his transition?

The first thing I would do on Wednesday is to take them both for a walk on lead so that they get to know each other on neutral ground.

As for making the transition easier for Eddy, I'm not sure what to suggest. When we brought our Flo home from the rescue we didn't alter anything or make any special arrangements, however, it took us time to realise that she needed to work out where she wanted to sleep. Once that was sorted we got in to a routine and she was fine.

Good luck for Weds, let us know how you all get on Dave thumbs up

I have only ever introduced pups to Daisy and we always make sure not to make any fuss of the new one for a few days until they settle with each other. As Ian suggested a long walk with both of them is great.

Rosie didn't react badly which is a good sign. I wish you all the best with them. Good Luck x










The fact Rosie didn't pay any attention isn't bad, she didn't react badly. I wish you all the best, good luck. x
