Should you get another dog if your first one is "bored"?
I have a 19month old male GSD. Despite giving him 1.5-2hours a day of exercise/mental stimulation, it still doesn't seem enough for him. So I thought getting him a playmate would be the solution. However, after reading on old thread from here from a few years ago, alot of you don't recommend that? I'd hate to put in more time and money to another dog and then they both become bored when I'm away at work, or don't play together unless I'm right there with them.
Thoughts? Experiences? I don't want another dog, but if it would guarantee to tire out my dog during the day, I'd be happy to get him a playmate.
