Before introducing dogs, ensure both dogs are up-to-date on vaccinations and in good health.
Choose a neutral location for the initial meeting to prevent territorial issues.
Keep dogs on leashes during the first introduction, maintaining control over the situation.
Close supervision is crucial to intervene in case of any signs of aggression or tension.
Reward both dogs with treats and praise for calm, friendly behavior during the introduction.
Take it slow and allow the dogs to become comfortable with each other at their own pace.
If you're unsure or experience difficulties, consult a professional dog trainer or behaviorist.
