    Introducing LhasaApso Puppies

     

     

     

    • Once you have bought Lhasa Apso pups for sale, it is a good idea to conduct the first meeting either through a gate or in a dog crate. The first meeting is the most important in the relationship. Allow the Lhasa Apso dogs to sniff each other through the barrier.

     

    • Before the Lhasa Apso dogs meet face to face, remove anything that could cause possessive behaviour in older Apso dogs such as toys, treats, food and water.

     

    • When introducing Lhasa Apso puppies, it is a good idea to have two people present holding each dog on a lead. Allow the Lhasa Apso dogs to meet and distract them if you see any tension building. Try taking them both for a walk together outside as it will help the Lhasa Apso puppies and Apso dogs bond.

     

    • Normal behaviour for Apso pups for sale is to jump up and attempt to lick the older Lhasa Apso dog’s face and muzzle. This is a submissive gesture and snapping or growling from the older dog is also quite normal and a good way of teaching manners.

     

    • Lhasa Apso puppies will learn a lot from the older dog and this should be allowed. Often Lhasa Apso puppies will only know they have gone too far when the older dog snaps or growls. Again, this is normal behaviour.

     

    • Make sure you still spend time alone with older Lhasa Apso dogs so they retain their place in the family. Make sure you also spend time alone with the Lhasa Apso puppies as well so they don’t become overly bonded to the other dog.
