Yours *TrulyJuly*

I do everything content.

A new dog, a whole new dynamic in the family!

A new dog, a whole new dynamic! 🙂

 

Is your dog up for it?

Your dog will probably be spending most of the time with the new addition to the family, so it’s really important that your dog appreciates a playmate and doesn’t see the puppy as a nuisance.

 

Is your space big enough?

It’s not just finding room for another dog bed. Can your space cope with twice the energy running around? How about twice the amount of fur and muddy dog paws?

 

Budget times two

Can you afford another dog? Maybe buying food in bulk can keep the cost down, but potentially it’s your current dog expenses times two.

 

Love times two

The more love you give the more love you have, right? And how do you do that for quality time, cuddles and grooming? Can you multitask enough to do it all for two at once?

 

But only half the work

If you trained your first dog well, this is when it really pays off: All the good – but also all the bad – behaviour gets passed on to the new dog. Is your dog a good example for the new dog?

 

Be boss

Depending on the characters of your dogs they might challenge each other or take it a step further and challenge you. Are you leader enough to keep the two at peace and at ease with each other?

 

Adopt Don’t Shop

Especially as an experienced dog owner, give a rescue dog a chance: #AdoptDontShop

 

Chances are your dog will enjoy the companionship of a second dog. Just like Lola loves her Mini-Me. :)
