Before bringing a new dog home, prepare your family and existing pets for the arrival.
Introduce the new dog and your family in a neutral location to reduce territorial behavior.
Always supervise interactions between the new dog and your family, including other pets.
Use positive reinforcement to reward good behavior during the introduction process.
Gradually integrate the new dog into your family's daily routines and activities.
Be patient and give everyone time to adjust to the new family dynamics.
Shower the new dog with love and support to help them feel secure in their new home.
