Thank You for all your help over the past 2 years. You've helped me raise and train the most awesome dog I've ever had.Jack is 2 years old.He has been the only dog on the farm until 5 days ago when I adopted a dog from a local shelter.The first 2 days he was his usual happy self but the last 3 days he seems to be more and more depressed. How do I help Jack with the transition?

New dog

Hi Kim,
It will probably take a few weeks for Jack to completely feel comfortable/get used to things. I would take the time to slowly introduce the two dogs. Make sure you spend some extra alone time with Jack giving him attention and some treats. You can start by walking the two seperately and if there is two of you to walk each dog you can pick a meet up point and then go back in different directions. Then gradually going together on short walks. Once Jack and your new dog figure out their place in the "pack" everything should be fine.
