So I’ve been contemplating with the idea of getting a little brother for Mylo for quite some time now. It turned out to be a fantastic idea to some inquisitive research on the internet first, as it introducing a new puppy to your family dog is not as straight forward as it sounds.
“Getting a new puppy is exciting—at least for the humans in the family. Sometimes the dog of the house doesn’t think the pup is a welcome addition, however. Many people believe that adding a puppy to the family will be harmonious, and that their current dog will be a good dog “mommy” or “daddy.” They are disappointed when that doesn’t happen. Often, expectations are unrealistic, but in most cases what the human family members see instead of those expectations is completely normal.
Knowing in advance what to expect can help families, and the existing dogs, make the process of introducing a new puppy to the household as easy as possible.”
