When we got Pandora home the other dogs were not impressed and so she was placed in her crate on the back porch where they could sniff her out. She was a feisty little puppy and was barking and growling at the adults. We would secure the adults and let her out to run around and do her business. Then put her back in crate as they read her peemail. On Day three they were basically ignoring her so it was time for the introduction. Here is how we did it.
Yes, have done that with adult Alaskan Malamute Females (2) adding a 6 month old CO male (caged for 2 days) then let them mingle in the backyard; he calmed down eventually....Also introduced a CAO puppy to two CO year old females - that was trickier: the 2 CO's were sisters and fought each other, while 1 accepted the CAO puppy and the other was aggressive. Once the CAO matured she held her own though. Word to the wise keep your hand off their heads when breaking up fights: flash bites (even after the dog realizes - Oh Oh! bit my master) go to the bone....Yikes. Godspeed.
