Are you considering buying a second dog? If so, there are so many benefits for you and your first dog, of course, to owning a second.
If you already have one dog, do you feel like he is lonely for those 8 or 9 hours a day while you are away at work 5 days a week? If you want to cure that loneliness, the perfect remedy is to get a second dog to have as a playmate.
Your dogs can play with each other all day while you are away.
When your current dog shows signs of boredom, like the destruction of property when you are away, having a playmate can easily solve this problem.
Dogs are pack animals, so it is easy for them to adjust from living as a single dog in the household to becoming an older brother or sister.
The order of the pack when you get a second dog will not change.
You as the owner will be the pack leader and the existing dog will show the newest family member the ropes.
Having more than one dog will encourage an owner to get out and take more walks. The benefit of two will be all of the exercise that they will get from this. Whether you walk the dogs together or separately, the bonus of keeping healthy will not change.
If you are the type of person that likes to browse the pages of your local animal shelter or your favorite breeder and are wondering what it would be like to have a second animal, it may just be the right time to take that leap of faith and get a second dog.
The companionship for you and all of the love that you have will spill over to your new friend.
There is nothing better than one wagging tail to come home to, except for two wagging tails.
