My partner has a five-year-old white shepherd, Cloud. She is currently our only pet, however I'm getting a puppy in about month. Cloud is great with other dogs, and has lived with roommate's puppies before. I just want to make sure she still knows what a spectacular, special dog she is when the new puppy comes. I would appreciate any experience/ advice on successfully introducing a new pet and making everyone feel extra special and loved.
When we got Mauser Scritch showed a bit of ire. We made sure that Scritch still gets some alone time with us. We also feed her first, and greet her first when coming in. It has made the transition easier for the both of them. They now chase each other through the house with the new toys I bring home. They sleep together, and search for each other when one is absent.
