I pretty much know how I'm going to handle my dogs when the pup is here, but the initial introduction is one that I'm a little unsure of... i.e. when the pup comes home from the airport... if I walk into the bedroom with Cujo in the crate and I have a puppy next to me, I'm pretty sure he's gonna go apeshit barking at the pup, n that's not a reaction I want to have... I remember reading somewhere that you should introduce the dogs somewhere away from the home - - does this go for initial introduction too? Should I put my dog away in a different room, sneak my puppy into the bedroom and put her in her crate, then let the older dog come in and investigate while she's in her new crate? Should I take Cujo to the airport with me and let them meet by the airport? I get my pup tomorrow, so trying to make sure I get the initial introduction right... I know Cujo will be fine with her, but if you catch him by surprise and suddenly walk into the house with a puppy while he's in his crate, that's just asking for him to go crazy.
