Introducing our new pup to our friends and family can be a super exciting time, but it can also come with its challenges. This is particularly the case if you're introducing your puppy to an older dog or children that think they rule the roost – a new addition isn’t always so welcome! To help with the process, in this episode Mel is joined by the talented Sarah Parker, who has one fully trained assistance dog Miska, and two more that are currently in training, and she’s no stranger to introducing them to new situations and people. Sarah provides some top tips on the best ways to approach the introduction process (humans and animals alike). She will also help us understand more about what may cause aggressive behaviour and which breeds may be best suited to a busy household. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
