Hello all To sum up l have 3 out of control 2 year old terriers. Two boys and a girl. All a work in progress - good in some departments - very bad in others. If you look at my posts you'll see what l mean ( Anyway to cut a long story short - a family member's circumstances have changed and she can no longer keep her GSD bitch aged 5. We have agreed to take her on as have GSDs before. From what l gather she is very well socialised and great with people, other dogs and children as has a house that has people visiting a lot. Anyway we are going to collect her soon and l just want to have the first meeting of the dogs to go well as it's a major thing. I usually take the dogs to a field and throw balls for them while we walk around it. My plan is to take the GSD to the field after the long journey to have trot around on a long traiing lead to let her have a stretch. In the meantime my husband will go and pick up the other 3. I will then put the GSD in my daughters car with her and then walk the others tiring them out. My first plan is to get my husband to walk ahead with the GSD and l put my three on their leads and sort of catch him up and try and walk along side for a while, gradually getting nearer. My alternative plan is to introduce each dog one at a time to the GSD before doing the above walk. Finally all the dogs will have to come home (in 2 cars at first - cant risk a fight in a contained space). Then will get the GSD out and have her held on the path and then get the others out and all follow each other into the house. It sounds good to me but thats because l want it to be so. Any advice would be a great help.
