One thing is for sure, the food I buy is much more nutritional or the people I bought the pups from don't feed they're dogs. We took deezol with cause when we bought him, the owners was very sad. And the mother of the 2 pups was a south african champ in agility and some shows. My intention is to have these dogs trained for comps and also have em trained for search and rescue. When I was younger I was a lifeguard, and being I spiritual person I believe I'm here to serve others so I want to volenteer to go help out in countries that have tornados, tsunamis and so on. I'm also going to volenteer at local police to help out with missing persons and so on.
The dominant one deezol, he doesn't shove his chest out when attacking shadow, he's more like playing now but the problem is he wants to play when shadow wants to sleep, and shadow resisting the playing, deezol kinda gets obsessed or "posessed" lol if I can say it that way, and plays harder and then hurts shadow.
The lady who's gona train my wife and I and the pups, says that time apart will do em good on a regular basis but she reckons its nit neccesary for em to be completely apart, she said that training should be done mostly appart but can fit em in together on accasion. The whole idea was that my wife take deezol for training and I take shadow, we did that yesterday, everything was ok besides shadow not taking the treats. My trainer says that some dogs are just not foor orientated and would much rather prefer praising over food.
She's gona start the training once the vacs are completed.
Thank you very much for your input mr. Hope you have a great day

|Nigel||I've raised 2 female litter mates. We were not aware when we got them about keeping them separate, however we managed to fumble our way through raising them without trouble. My wife and I each trained and focused on one dog, she had Zoey and I Tuke. We ended up housing them together during the work day, but once we got home all training and most fun was dont separately. The wife and I tend to disagree on a few things and we both wanted to train slightly different, the "disagreeing" in the end, saved our butts by keeping them apart and bonding with us verses each other. Your goals go beyond ours, we started out just wanting a good OB foundation, but then we got interested in agility and rally (for fun only) with you wanting a ppd, you'd do well to follow Echo and Chips advice.|

|Nigel||Do you have pet supply stores in your area? If the pedigree brand you are speaking of is the same as sold here in the US, you'll want to find something better, it is a grocery store/low quality food. Sorry I'm not familiar with what is available where your at to give a recommendation.|

Could you please advise me on theyre diet. According to the packs they should be fed 3 times a day. oh and they have dried meat treats and biscuits that they get now and then, they chew a while on these

|Chip Blasiole||It is all about laying the proper foundation. It is more important if you have workingline pups from a good breeding and have high goals for obedience, particularly competition. Make the runs as large as you can afford. If your dog is not hungry for treats, you are feeding him too much. Food is only a reinforcer if the dog is hungry. You should not free feed, but rather have specific times to feed your pups and give them ten minutes to eat and then take up the bowl. If there is food left, you are feeding too much. Sounds like you should cut back on the food. Also, the treat should be of high value. For example, a dog will likely prefer a small piece of meat over a dry piece of biscuit. Plus hard, crunchy food makes it easier for the dog to choke during the training.|

Ok im currently having trouble uploading the photos. My browser suggests i try later so that i will do.
Loveecho, sorry if understood incorrectly, it was on another forum that i asked for assistance, that being the reason why i said i feel i would gain knowledge here. Its always the shocking responses that one best learns from. As you can see already i do not know what im doing with these dogs, the training methods i got off of youtube and its working, thats about all i know.
I want the best for both my pups, i want a good and balanced pack from these 2 and will really consider each and every reply. Thus far it has been mostly the same so i take it that that is the way i should go.
Once thank you again to all who replied. I do now notice by your replies that i have messed up. But will work at it to have it fixed asap.
love light and blessings
I see now the image max file size is 19.5 kb, my images after re size varies from 5mb to 7mb. How do i post em here?

the black one is shadow. He wasn't up to any treats today. Dont know why, he obeyed and didnt want to take the treats.
Theyre focus was on me, had my wife take em over my shoulder.
Ok my yard is open right around. Atm i have no way of keeping them apart. And also, the trainers say that we wont have any problems with behaving. The training involves basic sit, down, stand, recall, loose lead walking, kindergarten heeling, bite inhibition, supervised off lead socialization, work off lead, noise desensitisation.
this is the work that is going to be done with these pups for the first 6 weeks. So with this training they will still be the way they are now? If i build enclosures for em, how big more or less should they be?
The reason i got 2 is so that one wont be lonely, these pups spend quite a bit of time with us even indoor. With em being seperated, it means i cant have em both indoor at the same time?
