Introducing a puppy to an older golden
I am so excited to be taking a Golden Retriever puppy home at the end of June! Although the puppy will be living with me in Boston, I will be spending the summer training/bonding with the puppy with my family in New Jersey at the shore.
My family has a Golden Retriever who just turned 11 named Tiki. He is the sweetest dog and quite frankly, acts like a puppy himself. He doesn't seem to take a huge interest in other dogs (with the exception of other Goldens) and is usually very calm when approached by other dogs-- he tends to just mind his own business.
As Tiki has gotten older he has grown much more stubborn. I am excited for him to meet my new puppy but also don't want to stress either of them out. Again, these two dogs will not be living together permanently, but will be spending a substantial amount of time together this summer.
I have attached a picture of Tiki, the 11 year old-- such a cutie!
