How to Introduce Your Dog to New Animals and People
Introducing your dog to new people and animals may be a difficult thing to do. Different surrounding factors may contribute to how your dog receives the new person or pet. Before you introduce your dog to a new person or animal, there are several precautions you should follow.
Here are a few tips that will help you make your introductions a bit smoother:
The environment plays a major role in how your dog will reciprocate the new person or pet. During the initial introduction, always make sure to separate your dog in the other room and allow your guests to settle in. This method avoids a chaotic interaction and gives your dog time to calm down and relax before meeting your new guest. Additionally, make sure to create a distraction-free environment to prevent any accidents between your guest and dog.
Once your guests have settled in, let your dog into the area. Don’t be afraid to let your dog roam the area and make the first move. If there’s another dog in the room, make sure that both animals are leashed before the interaction. Next, slowly walk your dog to the other dog and allow both animals to smell and circle each other. Then, separate the dogs from each other and repeat the process 2-3 more times until the pups’ become comfortable with each other.
Positive and Negative Reinforcement Methods
Don’t be afraid to practice positive and negative reinforcement methods. For example, if your dog goes into the room and immediately starts jumping and barking everywhere, place your dog in a separate room again. On the other hand, if your dog enters the room and remains calm, don’t be hesitant to hand out treats. Repeat this process throughout the engagement process to help keep newly interactions under control. Equally important, if your dog is shy or nervous, encourage him to interact with the new guest with a few snacks or favorite toy.
