Incorporating playfulness in the introduction process helps create a positive and enjoyable atmosphere. By swapping scents and engaging in playful interactions, dogs develop curiosity and establish positive associations with each other, fostering a harmonious connection.
Introducing dogs in a neutral territory, such as a park or a friend's yard, helps eliminate territorial boundaries and reduces the chances of conflict. Dogs feel less inclined to defend their territory and can focus on exploring and getting to know each other without feeling threatened.
Pack walks are an integral part of dog socialization. By leading the pack confidently, you establish yourself as the calm and assertive pack leader, promoting a sense of unity and cooperation among the dogs. Walking together as a pack allows them to bond, observe each other's behavior, and develop a mutual understanding.
Tantalizing Treats and Teamwork:
Using treats as rewards reinforces positive behavior and creates positive associations with the presence of other dogs. When all dogs participate in training exercises and receive rewards together, it fosters teamwork and a sense of camaraderie. This builds trust and cooperation among them.
