Let’s see how to avoid that jealous when it comes to another puppy. So if you have a jealous dog and you going to introduce him to a new puppy. First thing that you need to do is leashing them both. Then hold your older dog and bring the puppy. Let them make contact while you guys hold both their leashes. After they met each other pet them both same way. Be with them for few minutes and give pets to both of them. Then you need to give both these guys treats first give treats to the big dog.

After your dog get calm let them greet for few minutes and make sure that you are close to them. After they introduce their selves separate them and give some treats. Don’t give treats when they are closer to each other. Keep few meters of distance between them and give the treats.
