Introducing new puppy to horses?
Hi there, just joined because I'm looking for some advice! (Came from the dogforum). I have two horses, and recently brought home a sheltie pup. He's 10 weeks, and I'd like to get him acclimated to horses/barns/shows as soon as possible. I will bring someone along with me to the barn when I can, so they can hold him while I'm grooming, riding, etc, but when it's just me and my puppy, what's the best way in your experience to contain him? Crate, xpen, stall, tied? Do you keep them in the arena, barn? I would appreciate any and all advice pertaining to puppies/dogs and horses! I would love to end up with a barn buddy dog who is calm and quiet around horses, and maybe come trail riding with me eventually.
