Bringing a new pet into a home that is already a home to existing pets can be tricky, especially if either the new or old pets feel threatened. If this is the predicament that you are in, watch this video from Dr Harry for more information.
Before even considering bringing a new pet into your home it is important to assess the temperament of your existing pet. If you have a dog or cat that doesn’t get along with other pets it might be worthwhile taking them to a few obedience classes, or socialising them more often to help them feel more accustomed to having other pets around.
New pet privacy
A new pet that feels threatened in its new home will want to find their own sanctuary to escape to. Providing this space for them is the easiest way to help them relieve their nerves and become accustomed to their new environment as soon as possible. Allocate them a separate room to call their own before introducing them to other pets.
Meeting the rest of the two- and four-legged family members is inevitable, so prepare your new pet for this occasion by gradually opening the door of their sanctuary more and more. For the first few days they will want to remain tucked away, but once the door is opened they will end up feeling comfortable and confident enough to introduce themselves to the rest of the family.
