Training a working puppy in a household with other dogs
I have a 10 week old working line GSD pup. I also have a 6 year old rescue GSD. I am going to be doing protection work, and possibly schutzhund with the puppy, but there are a lot of things I have read that say keep the puppy separated from other dogs so that the pup is only interested in you. It is very unrealistic for me to separate them all the time. Right now, I am letting them play in the evening only, and during the day I work with the pup and my other dog separately. This seems to be going fine, and I also walk them separately. The pup does not seem to follow my other dog around too much, will follow me. Is this ok? Any feedback from people who have experience with training a working puppy in a household with other dogs would be greatly appreciated!
