While you are welcome to bring your dog to our adoption events, please know that they are usually a very stressful situation for the dogs in our care and for your current pets. There’s lots of movement and noise which can sometimes agitate the dogs in their crates. We do understand the value of having new siblings get along though, and can arrange for a meeting in a more quiet area of the store when available. Otherwise, we suggest that when adding a new member to your pack that you follow these guidelines.
- Introduce the dogs on neutral ground. A green space, dog park, or other such place that isn’t a place your current dog frequents.
- Before introduction, make sure both dogs have had plenty of exercise.
- Allow the dogs to meet on leash first.
