Living in a Multi-Dog Household

Living in a Multi-Dog Household

Here's a quick tip from one of our customers who rescued a dog and now lives with two very large dogs in her house. We loved this, so we wanted to share! 

If you live in a multi-dog household, the dogs do not need to be friends. What you should expect and require of all dogs in the home is peaceful co-existence. When Renegade (boerboel) tries to engage Mecca (rescue dog mix) in play, I can sense that he is often uncomfortable – therefore, I advocate for Mecca. I call Renegade off. I put them both in extended downs, or utilize the “place” command, while I am working. A highly structured set up has allowed me to keep Mecca alive and out of a shelter, while looking for a home. Showering a dog with love and affection, without providing clear leadership, boundaries, and rules is often a recipe for disaster, Expect more of your dog. Hold your dog accountable. You got this. 

- Tiffany G., Maryland 

*Note: Mecca is a rescue dog who is up for adoption (see picture). All shots etc. are up to date. He loves to snuggle, play, and chew soft toys! If you're interested, please e-mail us at hello@thepawtribe.com !
