Categories: Adding a New Dog to Your Home

Q. My friend moved into my brand new home with her untrained dog. My dog is trained but I'm afraid he's going to start marking in the house before I get her dog trained. I'm so upset I am ready to leave my own home and leave her and her dog there. Do you have suggestions?
I am sending you this email from outside of my house. I'm so upset I can't go in right now. I have a 1 year old dog that is house trained and a week ago a friend moved in my brand new home with her dog. Her dog is not house trained and it seems the owner has no desire to train her dog. I am trying the crate training now but her dog and my dog cry all day and night wanting to get to each other. I am afraid my dog is going to start "marking" his territory again before I get her's house trained. Are there any suggestions you can give me that will keep the dogs quiet and keep my dog house trained??? I'm ready to move out of my new house and leave her and her dog here. I've always loved animals but I find myself not liking her dog at all. It's very upsetting to me.

A. I'd set some rules for the friend and her dog. this is not a dog training issue, it's a human problem. The dog is not to blame. I'd read the article Ed wrote on introducing dogs. This is how new dogs should be introduced into a home with existing dogs. Print it out and give it to your friend and tell her that if she wants to live in your home, she needs to follow the guidelines we have on the website. Cindy Rhodes

Establishing Pack Structure with the Family Pet
Establishing Pack Structure with the Family Pet
$45.00
4 Hours
The goal of our pack structure training program is to produce a dog that is calm and submissive and a dog that follows the rules of the pack leader. This DVD teaches people how to become a pack leader that their dog respects and loves. Most people are not born pack leaders. In fact, far from it. The majority of dog owners (many who have owned dogs their entire life) simply do not know anything about the instincts that control our dogs or how strong these instincts are in the domestic dog. Oh people may have heard that they need to be a pack leader or they may have heard they need to be an ALPHA with their dog but they do not understand what this really means or how to accomplish it.
