Some people just want to help doggos find their fur-ever home. However, that’s not always a good idea if you already have another doggo.
– A dog owner got a new dog.
– The dog owner already had another dog.
– The dog owner does not advice to immediately get another dog while having a doggo.
A writer for Outside Online said that they decided to get a new dog and these are the things that they did: First, they replaced the favorite toys of their old doggo with neutral toys so that the old doggo won’t feel very possessive over the items once the new dog wants to play with them, too. Next, they bought the dogs their own beds and dishes as well as installed baby gates to let them feel they can have their alone time without fear of the other doggo interrupting it.
However, it was not as easy as that. The house was a disaster after two weeks because the old dog was having a panic attack and the new dog missed its siblings. The writer then shared that the best tip she could give is to think long and hard about getting another dog because getting a new dog might not be the best idea.
If you already decided to get a new dog, it’s best to not play favorites so that the old dog won’t suffer from panic attacks and know the warning signs like early anxiety and aggression from the old doggo.
