Once your puppy is welcomed into its new family, they will need to learn to interact with the existing environment. Being comfortable with their environment is an important part of growing up and becoming a happy and healthy adult dog. Socialising puppies with other animals in their environment is an important part of their learning curve.
Your puppy’s first task will be to discover their new world with the help of their owner, getting acquainted with the house, the garden and the new family members. When they are familiar with their new home and all the people living there, it’s time for them to meet any other furry occupants.
Any animals already living in the house will become a curiosity, but with a bit of care, they can soon get used to each other.
