How to introduce new dogs to older ones?
We have a 6 year old Shi-zu (inside) dog, we just adopted 10 week old brothers that are lab/new finland mix for outside. Everytime we try to let our older & smaller dog out to introduce them all, the pups charge & the older dog snaps at them.we have tried holding them all and moving slower but they don't even sniff or explore each other, they all just growl & snarl. These dogs have to co-exsist on the same farm and were afraid to even let the older dog out to pottty w/the pups around as they are already bigger than him & he has so few teeth. How do we make friends?
