I am looking for advice on introducing a new Doberman into my existing pet household. Currently, I have a 5-year-old Labrador Retriever and a 3-year-old cat who have been living together peacefully for a few years now. I have always wanted a Doberman and recently found one that I fell in love with at a local shelter.
I am a bit nervous about how my current pets will react to the new addition and want to make sure that the introduction goes smoothly. I have read some articles online about the importance of slow introductions and allowing the animals to get used to each other's scents before any face-to-face interactions occur.
I am also open to any training techniques or tips for ensuring that the Doberman is well-behaved around my other pets. I want to make sure that my Labrador and cat feel safe and comfortable in their own home.
Any advice or personal experiences with introducing a new Doberman into an existing pet household would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
