dog to dog introduction 

**This document provides advice on how to safely introduce two dogs who generally get along well with other dogs. Do not use this procedure if either dog has had a history of dog aggression and/or displays On Leash Reactivity (OLR) or Barrier Reactivity (BR) to other dogs. Both of these behaviors are rooted in frustration. This reactivity can manifest as barking, lunging, and even fighting or biting and can be displayed while the dog is either on the end of a leash or behind a barrier (fence, gate, etc.). If you are attempting to follow this procedure and either of the dogs seems uncomfortable or begins to display OLR or BR, please cease the introduction and contact a professional immediately.**
