What is the best way to introduce two dogs? The best method is probably the scariest - off leash in an outdoor neutral location. Start with two (exercised) tired dogs.

Each handler should call his dog to come and praise/reward before releasing the dogs to interact again for another brief period of time.

On leash introductions can be tricky because often one owner “initiates” the meet and greet (without permission) by allowing their dog to drag them towards you while yelling “don’t worry, he’s friendly.”
