    SmileHi all:)

    Hi allllll, were getting a new choc lab puppy in 4 week and we already have a 4 yearold choc lab (both girls) just wondering how would i introduce them to each other? Molly ( the oldest one) gets along really well with other dogs and people, and she isnt a jealous dog, just wondering would they be alright together?

    If your older lab is sociable, it should be fine. She may be a little jealous but who knows? They may love each other from the get go!

    I know this sounds crazy, but I always told the other dog(s) that we will get another baby dog just before bringing home puppy. I believe they understand. I always just put puppy in the yard with the older dog and it was always a happy experience for both. Molly may even assume the role of new mother, protecting and teaching the new puppy.

    When we brought Dozer home 5 years ago, the humane society suggested that we should take both dogs (we had had Rukus for 1.5 years at that time) to a neutral place before bringing him into the house. With both dogs leashed, my husband and I would allow them to meet and check each other out. After their curiosity of each other wore off, we brought Dozer into the house.

    For a few weeks afterwards, we still fed them in seperate rooms since there was a possibility of Dozer having some food aggression (he was emaciated when we got him), but over time moved their dishes closer and closer to each other during meal times. We also never allowed them to be loose in the house together when we weren't home. They did have their spats from time to time, but they've managed to work it out and live very comfortably together now.
