What do you mean by - training 2 dogs at the same time? Teaching them the exercises while tethered to one another like a team or training 2 dogs on the same day but at a different time?

I am hiding from this post. I can barely train one. And that's only if there are no rabbits, birds, raccoons or foxes anywhere within a five mile radius of my back field. Duke, you have my utmost respect, buddy.

Duke is extremely skilled....most of the rest of us need to focus on one!

I have 2 dogs.  Individually, they are pretty good.  And even together, they aren't bad.  But if something goes south, then 2 dogs is more than twice as hard as 1.  If one sees something that sets it off, the other one will pick up on it and then they encourage each other.  It's the 2 dogs plus the pack mentality.  Also, the subordinate dog becomes braver when he's with the dominant dog.  And the Dominant Dog is quicker to puff out its chest. 

But it would be cool to be able to do a bunch of obedience exercises with 2 dogs.  But I would think they should be on the same side.

I have been reading your post for a while, you need to read the words, do not think too hard, just read the words. It is not about you. You have insulted some real good people and dog trainers that have forgotten more about dogs and dog training then you know.  We have all seen your training. Who is impressed?

same way i assume yr post is referring to me now cos it is the next post down? and the thread had no responses for some time until i responded by complimenting the OP and then the thread came to life starting with a negative from gustav?


that was hard.

vk  (this IS addressed to you) - on this forum, with posts
coming in from all over the world, sometimes (quite often,
in fact) the next post you see may be answering the post
BEFORE your own ... and 'cross with yours in the mail', so
to speak.

The post was a comment in general, for people who may think this is viable.  Vk4, being an Internet trainer, trust me I know better than to advise you on training issues. That's why I seldom post on issues you are initiating...I know my limitations.Teeth Smile.
