Am I loopy to need two puppies??

Many individuals ask me what I take into consideration getting two puppies directly, or including a second Labrador (or canine).  Effectively, right here is my opinion…

Getting TWO puppies directly!

I truly do advocate getting 2 puppies…afterall…canines are PACK animals, so they’re happiest with their very own type. It additionally solves the query of “guilt” if you end up away and may’t be together with your canine.  It is also much less stress on the pups (no lonely crying pup in the midst of the night time…), and is much less stress on you. You do the coaching as soon as for each…simpler than getting a pup now, then one other later… I’d say I’ve a pair of labs exit in virtually each litter, as this development has truly grow to be extra common. I additionally discover it’s a false assumption that the pups will bond to one another and never you…I’ve had so many labs over 21 years, and I’ve by no means discovered this to be true. They embrace you IN their pack. they love you as a lot as they do their canine counterpart. Labs are sooooo adaptable.


Including a Second Labrador…

Some folks ask if they need to add the identical intercourse or reverse intercourse for a second labrador…I can inform you from expertise, similar intercourse will solely work about 50% of the time, however reverse intercourse pairings work 100% of the time. To me, its not well worth the threat of two similar intercourse canines having one emerge because the “alpha” and you must make the troublesome choice to position or promote one in every of your canines. That’s solely my opinion. I have to not less than state it, as I don’t wish to see any of you expertise this heartache. Generally the second lab of the identical intercourse can really feel “threatened” or in “competitors with” the opposite lab. It’s simply not price it, should you ask me…though it’s finally your selection, I DO NOT advocate 2 labs (canines) of the identical intercourse in the identical family.

***One thing to recollect while you convey residence your new pup…

Keep in mind while you introduced that model new child residence and also you had just a little youngster (toddler) at residence who received REAL jealous? This occurs once they study “hey, this little factor is getting extra consideration than ME, ME, ME!” We at all times make this deadly mistake…so as a substitute, give the “toddler” consideration WHEN the infant comes out…he’ll study, “Oh, cool, this child will get me consideration when it reveals up….I like this!!!” Similar factor with canines. Consider your current canine because the ‘toddler”…the remaining goes to work itself out over a TWO week interval because the “pecking order” is established. Please be affected person, and allow them to do that.
