Kodi was 11 mos when we addedShelby to the crew. We had to go pick Shelby up, so we brought Kodi along, 3 hrs away. We decided to stay at a pet friendly hotel overnight. Shelby arrived a little carsick, but quickly took over. We had some toys with us, and she took them away from Kodi. Kodi just hid behind me.
I decided to leave the room (the pups stayed with DH) and when I got back about an hour later, the two of them were playing like old friends. I think meeting on neutral territory helped, too. We've been very lucky and have never had a problem with their behavior towards each other.
Potty training wasn't too bad, because Kodi was almost completely trained by then. Like I said, we've been very lucky.
