How do I introduce a new dog to my existing dog?

Asked a year ago

I'm adopting a new sweet dog in a month and we already have a 2 year old dog. They are both very friendly but we want to make sure both of them feel comfortable and loved. We also want to make sure our dog doesn't feel encroached on. What is the best way to introduce the two?

The best way to introduce new family members is through a gated fence or allowing them to sniff each other through the doors. This allows them to get used to each other in a “neutral” type of environment. If this can not be obtained, keep all parties on a leash while they get to know each other in case any aggression breaks out.
