"Have them meet outside and on nuetral ground. That way your girl will not be as protective. Walk them together and let them sniff. And you should feed them seperately, giving the female her bowl first so she does not muscle in on your new arrival."
"I have found that my rescues (from a not too bad puppy mill) were just great!!! I have to laugh everytime that Wiley prances down the hall when I get her food she just seems so happy to be being fed regularly and getting attention and Mariah who was…"
"That's an interesting story.
I really don't know much about the rescue boy coming to me, he was found as a stray. Luckily, a Cardigan owner saw him and picked him up. It was then dicovered that he had hookworm and heartworm. Apparently,…"
"We did not bring a rescue in but we did move our son's doberman in last December. We already knew that Sparty did not like her. So if you run into problems I found leashing the troublemaker and letting them drag it around was very helpful. If…"
"Chepstow was the only child for 18 months. We got our "rescue" Tenby when he was 6 months old. He had so many socilization and behavior issues (from his 6 months of a terrible situation) I am still amazed that Roger, Chepstow, Tenby and I…"
"Thanks! I have some concern about managing dog-to-dog interactions myself, so I read all the threads on it that I can find.

"Wow, thanks to all for your advice.
I love the idea that, "everything in the house is mine and I share it with you at my pleasure." I have for awhile only giving treats after getting a "sit" or "down" but haven't…"
"I currently only have one dog, but hope to introduce another one soon (still looking for the dog, though) and I enjoy reading all the helpful tips.
One thing we have practiced with our Corgi is the idea that everything in the house is ours, even…"
"Another thing to consider is introducing them off-property; someplace neutral like a park. That way they can get to know each other without Bella being possessive over her turf. Let them play and socialize and then bring them home together."
"It is a frequent occurance that when folks have one corgi the possession issues do not cause problems. The issues only come in to play when we add more. I think you would do yourself well to start the "Nothing in life is free" program with…"
Your Corgis are beautiful!
Thanks for your suggestions. The ball playing hit home but NOT for the reason you think. Bella is an unbelievably focused retriever (tennis balls,) even more than food, which is saying a lot. When B is playing ball…"
"Hi and Welcome!
My 1 year old is currently deciding she should be "top dog" and so I have been dealing with some issues so that she doesn'tget to control and do what she wants to!
My main suggestion is to make sure they each have…"
