How to introduce your New Pet to your Old Pet

If you are thinking about getting a new pet and adding a member of the family to the pack, you must consider your current pet’s state of mind and the various factors involved in new pets adjusting with your current ones.

A little bit of research about the interaction of the animals, for instance, different breeds of dogs or cats, with each other can be quite helpful. It might be a good idea to try and get your current pet acquainted with the scent of their new friend to be if possible, to ensure that the transition is relatively smoother.

You can also introduce your new pet into a separate room in your house at the initial stages, so that both pets have the time to gradually get to know and get used to each other. You should also ensure that you keep their feeding and walking schedules regular, and try synchronising them wherever possible.

The key to healthy and happy pet interaction and a well-maintained family is supervision and feedback, so make sure you reward good behaviour on part of both pets, with verbal praise, treats, and affection to promote positive interactions and their attempts to accommodate each other.
