Too Many? Training and Living with Multiple Dogs

Living with multiple dogs can be quite a challenge! Taking care of their basic needs, as well as training them, can be all-consuming. How do you manage multiple dogs? What if one of the dogs doesn’t get along with the others? Can you train the dogs all together? If so, what does this training session look like? How do you prevent the mayhem?

These are the questions that will be answered in this Session. We will look at daily activities like feeding, transporting, and training the dogs. What if someone comes to the door? How do you manage four dogs (or more?) How can you stimulate a group of dogs mentally? How can you play with them all at the same time? This presentation will give you practical advice on how to make living with your multiple dogs much more manageable.
