why not do a thread search, try, "introducing new dog"

since you're doing this all so fast, you should start training your dog right now. if you are going to keep the puppy in your kitchen and away from your other dog, start keeping your older one out of the area right now, so that it doesn't feel like it's being punished because of the new puppy.


good luck

edited to add: there's better info in past threads, which is why i suggested the search

when you see your dog getting carried away, stop the play, or whatever it is making it excited. say something like, "that's enough" and ignore your dog completely until he settles down.
