Am I crazy?
I never thought I'd say this....but IWAP! Lola has been so difficult....the shyness/fearfulness of people, potty training was a real pia [she was a crate peer so I couldn't successfully crate train] and I'm still dealing with her SA issues. She barks & is stressed when I leave her alone. But, I still want another! Am I crazy? Will another puppy really help with Lola's SA issues? Some people seem to think it won't help. She loves being around other dogs, I think she'd be happier when left alone if she had a playmate.
I keep thinking that if I get a puppy from a better breeder who can really evaluate the puppy's personality then I won't have the same issues I've had with Lola. But maybe that's an unrealistic thought? Those issues being the shyness/fearfulness, crate peeing and maybe the SA. Does the second pup have a less likely chance of developing SA because it has the older pup to keep him/her company?
