If you are like me, than one dog is never enough. So I’ve made it as a rule, to allow the first dog to choose their mate. This does take some to find the right dog, but once it chooses its friend, there will be harmony.
Imagine for a moment, your parent bring home a complete stranger, off the street, and tell you, that this is your new sibling and you must love it like your own. Would you?
That’s how dogs feel about any other dogs that you bring home. So just to skip, all of the unnecessary hassle, I allow my pooch to choose their sibling/mate.
The main thing is to allow your dogs to establish their own hierarchy, in which the pack order is clear. This will ensure that conflicts will be rare.
