We are having a great time with our chessie pup. And Indy has turned out to be a super pup mentor, teaching him to swim, playing with him, etc. But I have always been told that pup and other dog should not "bond". We do keep them separated in their respective kennels most of the time, but allow "play time" in the evening or when going for a swim. They clearly enjoy one another, is this going to be a problem? I don't want to get to picky with them, nor do I want to affect eithers training. So far it has not, except that we can not have Indy out when pup is working or he gets too distracted.
