  10. Any books on introducing a second dog?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Eventually we want to get a second dog, although not in the immediate future. We'd like to get a dog within the next year (in 9 - 12 months' time for example) but are willing to wait if we don't feel we're ready yet - we want to be able to drive by then, and of course it depends if our landlord...
