|Frankly, I absolutely HATE it when people bring their dog here when meeting my puppies. First of all, their dog is NOT going to act at all the same as it will when it is home meeting the puppy and nothing is going to be gained that way, but, imo, most importantly...
It screws up ALL my dogs to have a strange dog in their home, especially when there is a momma there with puppies. And, everyone's dog comes into MY house and pees on my living room rug. I know, I know, they would NEVER do that at home, but they are not home and they gotta mark MY house. Then, my dogs all sniff it and they gotta mark it, too.
If you are getting an older dog then, fine, meeting first on NEUTRAL ground is a good idea, but when it comes to a puppy there is nothing at all to be gained by bringing your other dog/s, except stressing the puppy even more.
That all said, yes, when I am getting a new puppy or dog, I do usually bring someone along, usually Toto or Beanie, but I do that for me for their companionship on the trip out and in the motel assuming there is an overnight involved and they will stay in the car while I am at the breeders house.
How's the weather report????
No faceless book for me, to many security breaches with them!!!!!!!!!!!
