What can I do to help my dogs and their new owner adjust to eachother?

New owner took the dogs and I had to go help them get one dog out of the car. I think we may of jumped the gun letting the go so fast, but I think taking them back right away would be worse.( I can not keep the dogs, the new landlord already cashed the check) I am offering to buy muzzles so they can interact with the dogs without fear of being bitten. Should I just let them sort it out? Or do try to help them all adjust?

Yes, it was quick to just give the dogs up.

Meet the new owners some place without the dogs. This may sound gross, but, go jogging or workout so you sweat like a pig. During the workout, use a plain white cloth that has sat in some chix or beef broth (do not wash after soaking) to wipe the sweat up. Really allow your sweat to get into the cloth. Then take the cloth and create a braided throw toy out of it.

This allows the dogs to have something that reminds them of home BUT it also smells of dog treats. It will help make the new place like home. Remember the first 3 to 4 weeks are the most stressful for a dog. As the 3 weeks moves on, so does your scent, but slowly.

Have the new owners keep the toy(s) near the dogs.

Why would your dogs bite the new people. Be careful of having them use muzzles if you never have. It would be a new and terrifying experience for them.

Also, let the new owners know who your vet was so they can take the dogs to the vet. The vet should be a happy place for them, and the new owners taking them will help show them that the new owners are in the know.

Think of any other place you use to take the dogs, ie PetSmart, Dog parks, etc that isn’t to near your old home. Have them take them.

I wish you the best of luck with moving on without your babies and congrats to the new owners.

    Get several old t-shirts you have worn and not washed that have your scent on them and allow the dogs to have them around on the floor at the new place.

    Having your scent there to comfort them will allow them to adjust more comfortably to their new surroundings.

    A clean break is best. Give them at least a month before you visit, if you plan to visit. I would have found another landlord.

    You should let them handle it. Because they own the dogs now. If you keep going there the dogs will think you are still thier owner. Tell them to just be the pack leaderand take contol you will help them to ajust by giving them advice over the phone.

    They should do all the triaing if you do it the dogs won’t lisson to them.
