    Default We picked Winston up tonight!

    He's doing great. However, our other dog doesn't seem to interested in him. We introduced them outside and she sniffed him over. At first we thought all was good, but once we got inside I could see she seemed a little jealous even though one of us kept showing her attention too. For instance, I was holding her and picked him up and she tried to jump down. I stopped her from getting down so she tried to climb behind my back. Also, if one of us is holding the pup she runs over and jumps on the other one. I'm hoping this is short term and they turn out to be the best of buds.

    On a positive note, he's a complete sweetheart!

    That sounds so cute. Glad you're having fun with Winston. Dogs are like kids. What kid wouldn't be jealous of a new baby in the house? Things will sort out in the end.

    It's so hard to do with a new puppy I know, but the most important thing (I think) is to treat the dogs EQUALLY from the beginning. Dogs really do have a sense of "Justice" ("Hey, he got two cookies and I only got one!") and a pack leader shows NO PREFERENCE to any one dog in the pack. They are all treated equally.

    IMO.....I have introduced other dogs or puppies in my family and once had a trainer come in and her advice has always worked. Give them treats together so that they understand that great things happen when they are around each other....Do it often during the day and cut back as they become best buds! Good luck with your new pup!

    I hope so! She adored our Frenchie and I'm hoping these two are equally as close.

    I can't tell if she's jealous or scared of him. He keeps trying to play with her but she still doesn't want any part of it. I don't know how she can resist someone so adorable!!

    They will soon become best friends! It took Gio and Diva a few weeks to get used to each other. Only when we brought Diva home Gio warmed up to her first and she wanted nothing to do with him. They still get jealous of each other from time to time but that's normal. Actually just the other night Diva was sleeping behind a chair and Gio didn't know where she was, so Gio started walking around the house looking around, 10 minutes later Diva stuck her head up and when Gio saw her he ran over and started licking her, it was the cutest thing realizing he was looking for her!

    Post pics of the both of them! What kind of dog is your other one?

    They'll be best buds soon. Next thing you know, they'll start playing in little spurts... then they'll be inseperable!

    So far I've only taken pics with my phone. I will drag out the camera later and get some. Our other dog is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She's 20 months. She still runs away from him. It's so cute. He will come charging toward her and she runs to hide from him. Why on earth would she be scared of him? He's just a tiny little thing at the moment.
