an updated hand-out: bringing home a new dog

We spiffed and relaunched an all time favorite hand-out for adopters: A New Dog in the House.

It's as much wisdom as we can possibly squeeze into four pages for introducing a new dog into the household. Good enough for pit bulls - good enough for all breeds! Use it, Copy it, Share it, Link it. Spread the knowing.
A New Dog in the House

Right: Oh the misery. Patsy the Pup learns about tie-downs and rules.

Thanks for this!! We're introducing a new 1 yr old Am Staff mix to our 11 yr old Shepherd next weekend. Both dogs are a little insecure, and socially awkward, so it might not be the easiest transition. Any tips from someone that's done a similar intro would be great!
