How long did it take for your Corgi's to adjust to a new addition?!?

We just picked up our 2nd furkiddo this weekend, she is 8 weeks old!

Lobo our first baby is 3 1/2 years old and I know it has only been 3 days and everyone I have asked and everything I read says it will take time. He has totally broken my heart he is very pitiful. Friday when we brought Cadence to my in-laws he would literally turn his head away not even make eye contact with her lol. He would then sniff her and run away and other times he would show his teeth. Saturday and Sunday about the same a little more tolerable but still showing his teeth especially when she sneaks up on him as she is sooo tiny and fast .Now, mind you that we have all praised him and I have been super extra lovey (am I making things worse or am I just being paranoid?).

 

My husband and I have never had two pets ever! so I know we need some guidance and training lol

any advice is greatly appreciated!

Also, your puppy is adorable!

It can take time, just make sure you are being "lovey dovey" when he is not being snarly with the pup. Also, be sure to protect him when the puppy gets too pushy. Some dogs have a low threshold of tolerance for rambunctious pups, others will put up with anything.

Congrats...they are both so cute. Many times it takes awhile for an older dog to adjust to another dog, especially a pup. This is normal. My Aussie will growl and show his teeth but I truelly believe he is just scared of hurting a pup and once they get bigger he is fine with them. My corgis are used to pups but some tolerate the young ones better than others. Give them each their own space and time together and one day they will forget about it and start playing:)

Congrats on the new addition! We found that once we had one Corgi it just wasn't enough either. We welcomed Sammie home Dec. 2010 and then added Gracie Dec. 2011. Our trainer advised us to have them meet in a neutral place to help him adjust to the newbie. Well that didn't quite go so so well. What worked for us was only allowing them to be around each other a few minutes at a time with our supervision and then extending the time as Sammie would allow. It took a couple of weeks. We also make sure that Sammie gets private time without Gracie. Even after a year he gets aggravated with her demand to play constantly. Hope this helps.
