Having two dogs is much more than twice as hard to manage. And adding a third or fourth to the mix can complicate things even further.
If you think you’re ready to bring another dog home, this episode will help you figure out if it’s the right thing to do, how to make a smart choice of which dog to choose, how to introduce the new dog to your existing pack and how to train multiple dogs at once.
There’s a lot to think about and it’s easy to get in over your head pretty quickly. However, if you get informed and do things the right way it can be an awesome thing for you and your dogs.
