Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I have 2 11 wk old pups. Should I take both at the same time to training or would it be alright to just take one then teach the other on my own?

Well, let's see what everyone has to say to my response to this.

Should you take them both at the same time - No.
Should you take just one and then teach the other - No.

Okay, I'll stop being obtuse - both pups can benefit by the puppy training; but having them in the same class can be counterproductive since they'll probably tend to center their attention on each other when they should be socializing with the other pups.

If the place you're taking them to has, let's say groups on alternating days, that (IMHO) would be best then each pup would get the benefit of the training and the one-on-one time with you.

(( being foolish - of course, if your pups look enough alike, you could take one to a session and then take the other to the next session ..... ))

I wonder if maybe you could take pup A with you 1 lesson, teach pup B that lesson at home, than take pup B to the next lesson, teach pup A that lesson at home? Rotate them?

Both pups could benefit from the socialization.

I agree with what has already been said taking them both at the same time will just be rough and counter productive. Honestly if the group you are training with has like a class One day and then a second class the next day for example like a Tuesday class and a Wednesday class that would be best so they can both have there own class. Taking the pups one at a time gives them the chance to bond with you focus on you and learn. Also you wouldn't want to have one not get to experience class and one not because it's a good experience for both of them. Now if you can't do two classes at the same time you could take one to class and work with one at home and then when the class is done and the next class starts take the other one.

Thanks everyone. I spoke to the trainer and we start Monday. I'll take both to the first class so the trainer can "look" at them. It's only 5 classes so I'll just do one at a time. Smile
