Training Tips to Get Two Female Littermates Get Along

In this Omaha dog training session we worked with a pair of Puggle sisters, Ling Ling and Bella who are seven-years-old and Luka a five-month-old Husky and Mastiff mix who needed help to get along using Behavior Adjustment Training or BAT.

After I arrived I sat down to chat with the guardians about their main dog behavior concerns and I learned that the two Puggles who had been getting along all of their lives were now getting into disagreements with each other. This started around the time of brining the new puppy into the home. This can happen sometimes, as adding a new dog can change the dynamics in the home. I showed their guardians the Behavior Adjustment Training or BAT method to help the two dogs start getting along, which you can see in the video below.

I want to remind the guardians to take things slowly. It will be very important to allow the dogs to slowly rebuild their relationship. Also, remember to let the dogs tell you when they are ready to be closer to each other for longer periods of time. If you take things slowly in the beginning you will help them rebuild their relationship to help make sure that they don’t regress in the future.

By the end of the session the dogs were calm and spending more time around each other without getting anxious or upset. The dogs were looking to their guardians for leadership and direction. We wrapped up this dog behavior session with Ling Ling, Bella and Luka’s Roadmap to Success video, which you can watch below.
