Keep all dogs on leash while introducing to each other in an open space such as a backyard. You may need more than one handler when introducing multiple dogs.
Try parallel walks with 2 handlers and 2 dogs.
Let the dog sniff the new area/ environment as this calms the dog.
Let the dog guide you and gradually get closer. Forcing this can cause even more problems so it is important to take it slow!
Remember, slow and steady wins the race!
If one or both dogs are reactive towards each other, we recommend contacting a professional dog trainer or behavior consultant before trying this on your own.
