20 Sep Fighting between Canine family members
When a new dog is adopted into the family, it is a good idea to pay more “jolly-type” attention to the resident dog(s) than was shown before the newcomer’s arrival.
Make the additional pet fun for the resident pet. Allow the new animal to fit in and adjust with less attention than is shown to the older members. This will cause resident dogs to have pleasant associations with the new animal. If a fight should erupt, never induce more hostility into the situation by shouting, screaming, or scolding.
