    How To Train two Dogs

     

    When a prospective pet owner searches for the puppy of their dreams, it is quite common to consider bringing home to puppies rather than just the one. It is understandable why one may choose to bring home two puppies. Of course one could think that a single puppy would be lonely and that it was a great if they had a companion. However this can come with its own set of problems and potentially pitfalls even though on the surface the idea seems to be a good one. If your lifestyle permitted bringing home two puppies, then it will be kind of cute to see both of them grow up together.

    This can definitely reduce the chances of either puppy experiencing separation anxiety. But it will be nice to see them grow close together and develop their special bond with each other by being together and doing everything together just as they would being best of friends. However the other thing to consider having two puppies, is that their dependence on each other may also cause some problems.

    They could develop what is called littermate syndrome. With the syndrome, there is a potential that the two puppies may become socially isolated with each other. This means that they may become scared of other dogs and other people and fear the possibility of being separated from each other. This may result in a lot of stress and anxiety causing aggression against each other which can lead to fighting and in some cases even serious injury or death. He may have heard this being called "sibling rivalry".

    Interestingly some of the most serious fights occur between bitches. Some canine experts have noticed that if two dogs come together that are very similar in terms of their age, size, sex, as well as temperaments and breed that it can spark off a fight. It is believed that because these dogs are so similar, that they find it difficult to decide which of them is the alpha dog, and is therefore fight to establish dominance. If this is occurring in your home, and one of the solutions to correcting this is by re-homeing one of them.

    Although this will be a difficult decision, but if both dogs remained together they will only continue to fight and hurt each other due to their complete self-reliance on each other. It has been noted that after these two dogs have been separated, both dogs will dramatically improve both in personality and temperament almost immediately.

    If re-homing one of your parts is too difficult a decision for you to make, then there may be something you could do to help your situation with the two puppies. The idea is to create a distinct identity for each of your puppies. Now doing this isn't going to be easy and you will need to work doubly hard to achieve it.

    Here is what you can do:

    • Feed them separately

    • Walk them separately

    • Train them separately

    • Crate them separately

    • Play with them separately

    You will probably need to do this for at least 12 to 14 months, because by this time their personalities and temperaments will have been formed and they will become more confident in their abilities as individuals. By being treated separately and in some regard being apart from each other, then they will learn and grow to become well rounded and adjusted dogs.
