hi, and welcome. I like to recommend having your first dog fairly well trained before adding a second. The second one definitely won't help with training the first. ,and you might make the first one more of a challenge.

I agree, two is MUCH more fun, but can be more of a challenge training-wise as well.. We got Aries right as Sonic was turning a year old and we were gearing up for his Canine Good Citizen test. He had all the basics down and it turned out a second at that time really helped in fine tuning a lot of the items as well as working with a big distraction. But I can't imagine the headache of having a second while still getting training down with the first.

They now get a lot of joint refresher training around the house (as well as individual work) and there are still times where one breaks a stay early and it triggers a chain reaction in the other, so it still can be tough at times. We're still trying to get them really good at walking together on leash, right now they tangle and run in circles around me even though separately they have wonderful heels.

Anyway, I absolutely love having two!

I agree! If one sees that the other is getting treats, the other feels slighted, 😉 and jumps into the fray.

We have one Hav, but my mom has one too, so when she comes up from Florida and stays with us, then we have 2

Oh, man, if that isn't the truth!! Finn LOVES bananas, so if I am eating one, he has to have a couple pieces. Augie does NOT like them, but he'll be hanged if he'll miss out on something Finn is getting. He reminds me of a little kid who will hold their nose and swallow so they don't have to taste it. He'll kind of roll it on his tongue a minute and then swallow carefully. It does NOT go down the same way that rotisserie chicken, his absolute favorite, does. And if Finn is not around and I try to give him a piece of banana, he'll have nothing to do with it. At. All.

We are on our second Hav--so far we are a one Hav at a time family, but with all this talk of MHS, I might succumb to the Syndrome at some point. If I did succumb, I would want to do a rescue. I do know that I will never be without one. They are the only breed for me!
