Two sets of dogs to live together
My boyfriend and I will be moving into a house together in the near future. He has two female 4 year old Alsatians's and I have a four year old Labrador and a 11 year old Rough Collie. Neither of us are prepared to part with our dogs and would like to know how to handle this situation. The property is 1300 sqm so large enough for all four dogs - but WILL they live together?

You need to check with you municipality as some have limits on the number of dogs that can be kept on one property. If they allow four dogs then it would be good to introduce tham on neutral land and then take them to the new property at the same time so that none get the chance to recognise it as their own before the others.
