Tips for Introducing a New Puppy to Older Dogs

Tips for Introducing a New Puppy to Older Dogs

In May, we added a new Great Pyrenees puppy, Harry, to our family. You may have seen pictures of him on Instagram. Before Dan and I had kids, we raised puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind. We had a new puppy coming in every year and we also had our existing, older pet dog, Montana. We have lots of experience introducing puppies to older dogs, so when we got Harry, I wasn’t really worried. However, we have learned tried and true tips that make the introduction process a lot easier.

Introduce on neutral territory

Depending on your current dog’s behavior, it might be a good idea to introduce your new puppy to your older dog on neutral territory like a neighbor’s house or a park. This is a good idea because you current dog might be possessive of her things aka your house. Bringing both dogs to a neutral territory for the first time can help the older dogs feel better about, and be more accepting toward, the new puppy.

What you must know about feeding your Great Pyrenees. #GrainFreeForMe #ad

If you have a Great Pyrenees or are thinking about getting one, it’s important to understand how this breed reacts to and around food. Here are five things you must know about feeding your Great Pyr.

What you must know about feeding your Great Pyrenees for optimal health and performance.

 

The Great Pyrenees breed is one of the most beautiful working dogs there is and oh so helpful to homesteaders and other farmers. As livestock guardian dogs, they have a useful role and help keep other farm animals safe from predators.  To help them perform to the best of their ability, it’s important to feed them a high quality, healthy food. It also doesn’t break the bank to feed them so you can afford to buy them a higher quality dog food.

What You Must Know about Feeding Great Pyrenees Dogs

We recently started feeding our Great Pry, Nora, from the newly reinvented and now grain-free Wellness® Complete Health™ Line, specifically the Grain Free Lamb and Lamb Meal formula. The first ten ingredients are real food items that I can identify: lamb, lamb meal, potatoes, peas, dried ground potatoes, chickpeas, menhaden fish meal, tomato pomace, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), and ground flaxseed. Wellness Complete Health is free from artificial ingredients, colors, flavors, and inexpensive poultry by-product meals. Our dog, who isn’t honestly all that interested in food, LOVES her new dog food. I’m happy to feed her something that’s good for her and will provide her with live active probiotics, a good Omega 3 & 6 mix, essential vitamins and minerals for cellular health, immunity and disease resistance, and fruit and veggie antioxidants. 

Great Pyrenees dogs have a slow metabolism. 

You might think that a giant breed like the Great Pyrenees would eat as much as Clifford the Big Red Dog. (Can you tell I have kids and read a lot of stories?) Well, it’s not really true. Luckily for Pyr owners, the breed has a slow metabolism and doesn’t eat as much as other giant dogs. That’s nice, because they also don’t poop as big either. 😉

If you’re a dog owner, keeping your dog happy and healthy is high on your priority list. A happy and well-behaved dog is much more pleasant to be around can do a lot of fun things! If you’re looking for tips on how to make your dog happy and healthy, this post is for you!

How to Make Your Dog Happy

Train your dog

A well-behaved dog that you can trust is very important. Not having to worry about your dog around other people makes taking your dog public places easier. Many dogs enjoy going places with their owners and dog-friendly places like PetSmart and dog parks can be a lot of fun for your dog! Training and socialization is very important. It’s also not that hard with consistent effort and a reward-based program. The best dog training tips I’ve learned over the years are to be consistent, use food rewards, and always follow through. Dog training tips are a lot like kid training tips, best I can tell. 🙂
