I'm so happy to be able to report this! Since Jasper's hormones were starting to die down after his neuter surgery at the beginning of June, I began introducing him and Bandit for short periods every day... just turning them both loose in the kennel, under close supervision, petting and praising and letting them get used to each other - and always ending on a positive note instead of waiting for something bad to happen. Gradually, I started adding Willow back into the mix, and although that caused some tension at first, things rapidly eased up.

Today was the big test... all three of them, loose and feeling playful, in the kennel together! I'm so happy to report that they all did BEAUTIFULLY and got along very well. There were a few brief moments of tension but nothing worrying at all... in fact, they were all able to play at once, with no problems!

I'm so relieved! When I first got Jasper, I wasn't sure if he and Bandit would get along. Now, about 6 weeks later, and everyone is on their way to being a happy, well-integrated little pack. :)

Just had to share this update!

Congratulations on them all getting along, I know it was a big relief for me when Upendi and Mina could be let out to play together.

Yay, glad your 3 are getting along well! My 3 are also getting along much better. No more fights have happened, and they can be out with bones together (supervised). Still not letting them be out with toys though.

Awww! AlphaDog, I'm honored that you like my pups enough to follow them on the forum! :D I like having stalkers :D

And yes, Jasper is a full-fledged member of the family! He's a great boy and so silly, there's just so much to love about him. He fits in well here. :D
