Do you find it's significantly more work to have two than one? Everything I've read says to spend time with each individually. Does this mean 2 separate walks - or can we walk together in the morning and then have separate time in the evenings?

Thanks so much!

By all means, walk together in the morning and have some separate times later in the day. That sounds like a great way to do it.

Truthfully, except for some of the times when I have two giant puppies wrestling all over the teeny tiny living room, or both clamoring for my attention (translation - climbing all over me) two dogs are easier than one. Of course, having Bimmer makes having a third dog great, since he's the one who makes everyone mind!

My crazy boy actually felt the need to try and attack a car last week. Aaahh, RMS, if only I had gotten his brain in the mail as promised.
Having 3 Rescue Dobes myself, I so agree with your outlook. Although constantly changing pace on walks (with comands, walk, faster, stop etc) did get them to walk correctly, with or without a lead (leash).
