New puppy! Help!

We have had Henry for 5 days now and he is doing great!! Daisy is doing ok. They have not played together yet, and that worries me. If Daisy wants to play then Henry seems scared and if Henry wants to play then Daisy will just walk away from him or growl. Daisy does great with him at times and then at other times she seems like a bully. What should I look for? And how do I encourage play or do I just have to let them figure it out?

Had sort of the same problem except my girl completely despised her new little brother. They have both acclimated. They will work it out on their own-she is showing him the pecking order. Dogs pretty much coexist with little drama, unlike humans.

Daisy and Henery probably just need more time. Daisy is probably confused and trying to show her dominance. Poor Henery wants his Mom I think trying to play ball or something would be good let the puppy watch and then hold Daisy so Henery can play.

I am sure I just need to give it time. It makes me feel better to know that there is hope. I just want to make sure I do the right thing with them.

I totally agree. Dogs have their pecking order and I'm sure, in time, they will have a great relationship. Let us know.

I agree with the others. It just takes time.

It may take weeks.....hang in there. It was pretty scary at times with Dexter and Jack. Praise all good behavior. Continue to give your older Hav lots of attention, if not more than the pup.
