Well, I think I may know what your asking so I'll take a shot. To properly introduce dogs whether they be male or female, you need to take the time off of their territory and do the introductions. A mutual walk is a good place to start. If both you and your son have control over your animals, you will be able to address any concerns while out on a walk and discern whether they need more get to know each other time before they are full time brothers or brother/sister. Before you take them for their mutual walk both dogs should be utterly exhausted. A tired mind and body won't put up much of a fight and will make your transition easier and eventually they will tire each other out and be best buddies in their new home together. Keep any negative thoughts or fears at bay, manifest only what you want the outcome to actually be, not what MIGHT happen.
