Introducing a New Cat or Dog to Your Home

Tuesday, January 3, 2023
posted by Jim Murphy

Many of us take this one for granted. We are so anxious to bring a new pet home that we fail to go over the basic steps to get them acclimated to their new environment. The Animal Humane Society has listed basic steps that you should know and follow when introducing a new pet.

Despite the stereotype, many dogs and cats learn to live together peacefully. Be patient and take the introduction process slowly, but know that whether or not your pets get along will also depend on their individual personalities. Follow these steps to maximize the chances of success.

Getting started
Keep the pets separate at first
Feed them on opposite sides of a closed door
Teach basic commands
Begin face-to-face meetings
Repeat sessions daily
Allow pets loose together
Proceed with caution

Continue to separate the pets when you are not there to supervise.

Follow these steps and your new friend will fit in perfectly with you and your family.
Remember, pet’s are family!
