Fellow dog owner
by: Anonymous

Firstly, this dog has only been there one night. You need to allow her time to adjust to her new home and new house mate. She should not be forced into a situation that makes her uncomfortable such as being forced to "bond" too quickly. Let her go at her own pace. Also your dog Archie should be corrected when trying to mount her. This is a behavior of dominance which could make your new dog feel threatened. Essentially, Archie is coming on too strong. Consider reviewing this webpage for additional tips to help your dogs bond https://www.cuteness.com/blog/content/can-i-help-two-dogs-bond-with-each-other
Please advise your partner that she needs to show the same affection levels to both dogs. If the new dogs noticed that she is giving the other dog more affection this can create a rivalry.

Also you may want to try having them participate in fun activities together. Treat training, fetch, walks, etc. this could potentially help their bonding experience. Your new dog will notice whenever Archie is around something good is happening and associate that those feelings with Archie.

I am not a trainer, just a fellow dog owner sharing my own personal experiences with my pups.
Hope this helps!

Motivational Correction
by: Adam G. Katz

"You're going to want to give her a motivational correction-- but not one that's too motivational, otherwise there is a the possibility of her becoming defensive. I detail how to do this more explicitly in my "Secrets" book that you can download at "DogProblems.com" right now for $1."

Employ the "Nothing In Life Is Free" approach, so that your dog starts to view you as the "pack leader." If your dog doesn't see you as the leader, then your corrections will be meaningless. So, if you're doing subtle things (inadvertently) to undermine your leadership role around the house-- it will be counter-productive.
