How to Add Seccond Dog in Home
Introducing a new dog to your family may be disconcerting to your current dog. If he is used to having you all to himself, he may be jealous of the attention you pay to the new dog. There are some things you can do to ease the social transition for both of them:
* When you do something fun with one dog, make sure the other gets something good too;
* Teach your dogs to take turns by saying each dog's name before you hand him a treat or a toy. This will teach them to wait to hear their names before taking an item from you;
* If either dog gets to pushy or rowdy with the other or tries to guard you as private property, give him a time-out alone for five to ten minutes.
