The Benefits of Having Two Dogs in the House

As a dog owner, you know the great benefits of having one around the house. They are an essential part of the family, and they give us joy and love in life. Having another dog in the house can be much more beneficial to you and them. If you can afford it and have the space, a second dog can really help.

two dogs playing on hammockWhy is this beneficial?

It’s recommended that the two dogs should either be two older ones, or an older one and a puppy. Two puppies could be a nightmare for you and your family.

  • They will be company for each other – Having two dogs will help them bond and be friends. They will keep each other active when it comes to exercise and playing.
  • Dog training is easier – If you have an older dog and a puppy, the puppy will look to the older one for guidance on house rules and behavior. They are pack animals, so this will be much easier for you to train the puppy.
  • Leaving the house – When you leave the house for work and have to leave the dog alone, they may have separation anxiety. If you have two, trained dogs keeping each other company, you may not have to deal with the separation anxiety from one dog.

It’s in your hands whether you want another dog in the home. It isn’t much more costly to have a second one in the house. Who knows, you could be saving another life by taking in that other dog.

Whether you have one or two dogs, D’Tails Grooming offers pet boarding and playdates for your dog(s). We also offer grooming services for your convenience. If you’re going on a trip or would like your dog(s) to make some new friends, we are the perfect place for that.
