New Fur baby?
  • So in the next month or so we will have a new addition to our house.
    He will be an Alaskan klee kai (a miniature husky so it will look like a puppy forever)
    and since he will be much more of a baby than Ginger is (who is 4 months now), I was wondering how to introduce them without her just trampling him in an attempt to play?

    She is pretty socialized so when she sees other dogs she is happy, but I don't think she knows the difference between a baby and an adult. Her instant reaction is to sniff for two seconds or so, and then pounce to play.
    Im sure there is no magical thing I can do, but some thoughts would be nice.

    (and a belated Fathers day to all the Fathers to Sassy shiba babys! )

    Since this is a duplicate topic, I'll close this thread for now to help keep the forum neater.
