The relationship between people and animals is mutually beneficial and dynamic, and it is influenced by actions necessary for both parties’ safety and well-being. This involves, among other things, interactions between people, animals, and the environment on an emotional, psychological, and physical level. In the human-animal bond, the veterinarian’s job is to make the most of this bond between humans and animals. Find a neutral, completely gated, outdoor location that neither dog has “claimed” through regular visits or walks, if at all possible. The area should be calm and devoid of any other dogs or people, such as a friend’s backyard or a park after hours when nobody is present. Since this isn’t always practical, the next best thing is a large enough outside area where the dogs may explore while on leash to get to know one another. Choose a sizable garage or basement if there isn’t any outdoor space accessible. Anything that could start a fight, such as dog toys, bones, beds, and even empty food dishes, should be put away. Take into account everything, even those that don’t seem to interest your dog. In the event that your new dog becomes interested in an old bone, it can suddenly become valuable again. You’ll need a partner who is familiar with canine body language to assist you because the dog introduction process starts with both dogs on leashes. Keep an eye out for the dogs’ cheerful, waggy body language and interest in one another, as well as for any lowered or tucked tails. Look for the commonly missed or misread indicators that one dog is attempting to escape. When your dog approaches you, it usually means they need a break from the connection and you shouldn’t throw them back “into the fire.” Engage the assistance of a trainer during the introduction phase if you’re uncomfortable with how the dogs are behaving during this initial stage if you’re unsure of what your dogs’ behaviors mean.
