    Default Training two pups at once

    I recently posted about a 4 mo pup I had gotten. I have a question about how to train with 2 dogs. Mainly how much time per day should they spend together. I ask this because I would ideally have the pup bond to me rather than my other dog. I do not have a kennel just crate during the day. Any advice would be great. Thanks

    Hey there Ed,

    when training dogs it just comes down to spending time with them, even if it is only 10 to 20 min at a time a couple times a day, when I am not around they are kenneled up - they stay out of trouble and conserve energy, if you want to bond with them, after airing the pups, kennel one up and do one on one training they will get to know you and vise versa, then do the same with the other dogs when your done kennel them up for 30 min. after 30 min of letting the lesson sit in their heads a bit you can let them run again or you can get back to your day it is all up to you but short lessons with only one dog at a time is what really helps train dogs and bonds - long lessons tend to let the dogs mind wander off.

    good luck
