In a few days, our three dog pack will have a new addition. The new dog belongs to an acquaintance who lacks the maturity to keep the dog. The dog is very intelligent and trainable. He is a three year old neutered male. We have worked with him on several occasions in an attempt to help his owner learn how to work with him, but she is giving up.
I bring our dogs to work with me every day. There they have access to a fenced field as well as a few other dogs that are owned by my employees. It’s kind of dog heaven.
At home, in our finished basement, I have three crates and a dog run. I’ll be adding a fourth crate today. We live in the country, with acres of woods around us.
Suggestions/tips/tricks to help integrate him into our existing pack? Also, his name is “Bruno”. I’m not in love with the name, plus it has “no” right in it. Thoughts on renaming?
