With the arrival of my 2nd dog in just under 3 weeks, I was wondering is it gonna be easier to train her when she has another dog to watch and learn from as well? What have those of you who have multiple dogs found?
I'm eagerly awaiting the day to go pick her up! Hopefully this weather in Wisconsin will finally realize that spring is here and bring us some warmer days so I can spend more time outside with the dogs..
Yes and No. Yes in that the puppy will learn fromthe older dogs. Dogs learn allot from watching and the older dogs will also show them the ropes as others have said. The no part has to do with the dogs competitive nature. This can also be a plus, but allot of times I see two dogs competing with each other and ignoring the owner. You just need to reinforce that when you say something, they do it, or you make them do it.
Thanks for the input everyone. I hadn't thought about Jed learning bad habits from Jasmine, and I can definately see it happening now, he likes to test his limits every once in awhile!
I did get another picture emailed to me last night, she is growing so fast!
