There are several advantages to adding a second dog to the family. These benefits include…
Two dogs in the family can provide each other with companionship while you are away at work or play. Multiple-dog owners see a strong bond form between the dogs since dogs are essentially pack animals and are naturally attuned to pack living.
Moreover it is good for a dog to have a companion of his own species. No human will be able to run as much as a dog, participate in play fights and communicate through barking.
Training Easier with Second Dog
Training a second dog is much easier than training the first. As pack animals they learn by example. Potty training, commands and walk training is easier for the new dog as it has an example to learn from.
Probably the single most sited benefit by multiple dog owners is that two dogs provide you with twice the fun and entertainment.
Play fighting, a natural activity for any dog, is one of the best ways dogs can burn off energy and stay fit with exercise. A single dog simply can’t play fight alone.
Younger dogs naturally have more energy and can revitalize an older dog, adding to its daily life and possibly even extending the older dog’s lifespan.
