Advice on Puppy Introduction:
Hello everyone. I am new here, and I sure hope I can find some good information to help me with introducing my new puppy to other dogs in my home.
I have 2 female golden retreive/lab mixed dogs.Both of them are older dogs. One is 12 yrs. the other is 10 yrs. old. About 2 1/2 months ago, we buried our beautiful 15 yr.old Golden retriever male that we loved so much.
About 5 days ago, we got a beautilful golden/lab male that is 7 weeks old, and we have let our girls smell him, see him, while he was on our laps, but we think he is too young to put down on the floor with the girls right now. We have kept him in the bathroom for safety purposes, and we let him roam the house when the girls are put up, or let outside. Everytime we want to play with him, we put the girls in another room, for fear of jealousy, and so the girls won't fight, or hurt the puppy.
So, my question is how long should we wait before we feel it is safe enough to let him roam around the house with the girls.
Any advice is welcome.
