Q. We have just introduced our 15 week puppy to our new 8 week puppy (both boys and boy mini dachshunds). How do we ease them into life together?

A. Young puppies will playfight and defend toys etc but should learn to accommodate each other. Ensure to give both of them plenty of active play time to use up their extra energy, ensure they always have at least 3 toys to prevent one pup guarding two toys at the same time. I would feed separately to prevent food jealousy until they are more settled. 2 males can have more dominance aggression as they get more mature also so you may need to consider neutering them also
