Walk up to each other and stop with a two- to three-foot buffer between the two dogs

Have the handlers reach out to shake hands, keeping both dogs in a SIT. Take turns having each handler reach out and pet the other dog while he remains seated.

Go for a short fifteen- to twenty minute walk together. Two handlers and two dogs walking under control is a fun way to teach the dogs to be together. If one dog has any questions about the safety of the situation, two leaders in control will quell his fear nicely

Have the dogs meet for two to three seconds, then split them up with a command and some personal space. After two to three seconds of sniffing, say HEEL and move your dog’s away for a breather. Smaller doses of “hellos” will prevent first meetings from becoming offensive. Repeat this three to four times, but do not increase the greeting length.

Don’t let your leashes twist! Yes, this appears comical in the movies, but it usually becomes stressful and unsafe in real life.

It is common for people to allow their dogs to pull into another dog’s space. This is not only discourteous, but is also potentially dangerous. The pulling dog can set off another dog’s defenses by appearing out of control. Be aware of personal space and be respectful of this boundary.
