    I might be bringing a little 8 year old female chihuahua home tonight to meet my 13 week old chihuahua pup. Any tips on how to introduce them??


    Thanks Becca xxx

    Let them meet out side the home so there is no arguments over territory.
    When you go in let the older dog have a good explore and then let them play if they want to, supervise carefully as not all older dogs will tolerate a bouncey puppy.

    Best of luck - Hope the meeting goes well. And remember pictures are a must!

    when we introduced our new pup to the other 2 terriers we put the pup in her crate and let them smell her through the bars first, then slowly let the pup wander around the kitchen with us all supervising what was going on. We aslo took them all in the garden so they could wander about, this worked for us and we were introducing a pup to a 2 year old border and a 11 year old jrt, so we managed with out any problems good luck :)
