Diana Thouht someone had posted this sticky, but as they haven't, Hoping it helps you get things clarified in a bit of detail where you stand around and during puppy innoculations:

Monty-2010 How did you get on with the meet with the dachshound, my gran parents want me to bring Monty to meet them, hes so full of life and energy that i am wondering how to keep him calm while socialising them.

debpat Hiya
how exciting to be getting a new pup.

I think you will find them fine for a while but you may need to seperate them after your pup gets tired.

Buddie was only 9 weeks when he met my brothers springer spaniel who is 9 months old. They loved meeting each other but my pup got tired quite quickly.

I think they is what has surprised me most with Buddie, he gets tired quick quickly at the moment.
Just like a baby really sleep,eat,play sleep etc.

So just be patient and take time and sure they will be good friends xx

PaddyOsc I think the more socialising pups do, the better.
my Toby is nearly 17 weeks old and has met just about every breed of dog known.
his best friend is a manic 15 month old springer and also a calm as anything shih tzu.
he is also at puppy class and has a whale of a time there, had to miss last week as he was ill, but looking forward to tonights class.
I am certain that getting them used to mixing will make your new dog better in the long run.
Obviously you have to be careful re; dogs that are not inoculated and also aggressive dogs.
I was wary this morning as we came across Spike out of the Tom and Jerry cartoons, but he turned out to be a big softy.
Good luck.

MattAlly Great, thanks Jules. I think I'm over-complicating things, lot to think about and read up on when you get your first pup....

... I'd give it a go then. You can have different rules for different dogs in the same house you know.....Just because one does something, doesn't necessarily mean the other has to. I mean, my lot all sleep on the sofas and on my bed, but the Guide Dog pups were only allowed on the floor or in their beds and for the most part, they were quite content with that arrangement.

Just start as you mean to go on, regardless of what your Mum lets her Dachsie get away with. :wink:

MattAlly Yes and their dog is the daughter they never had!!

I think I will give it a go... thanks all!

paws Well why not give it a go then, you can always step in if needs be and your pup is going to come across all sorts of dogs in his life so maybe the sooner the better. Anyway I wouldn't fancy your chances saying no to your Mum, Mum's have this wicked way of thinking they always know better and it doesn't matter how old you are...! :wink:
