Are Two Better Than One

Uh, Well can we say, “Duh?”…

Clearly, many of these folks agree that two are better than one. There are countless reasons behind this phenomenon; many we probably don’t know. There is twice the fun, and double-craziness. There is the sweet companionship, once they get settled in together. It can make for a better all-around situation. There are fewer less separation-anxiety issues if they have each other–it does not eradicate the issue. This is a smattering of what we have in our archives. Forgive us, because we only grabbed those that were easily available on Shela’s Mac.

Is it for You?

Not everyone is a Two-Weimaraner family candidate. There is the obvious issue–more expense. They each require attention, and work; initially, it can take a lot of patience, as well as the knack to get things to work. It is almost never a good idea to get two at once. Yes, they can grow up having each other; however, they tend to bond to each other. They have a secret life, and can shut you out–tune you out at the most inopportune time. The training process can take a huge setback, because they are more invested in each other than in you. It is more ideal to get one, and to get them fully adjusted, before to tackle the second. Furthermore, if you space them out, this can mean that you are more likely going to have one of the two for the extended time. This means you might avoid being Weimless, a made-up term, that some you will relate to. It is best avoided when possible.

The Skinny

There are many repeat clients, that have two (and even three) OwyheeStar Weims. There are some that have an OwyheeStar, and they have rescued another Weimaraner. 11053923_10205751684704867_1785756740525326743_nTwo of these magnificent creatures can be managed. They can be twice the fun; however, you have to know if it is right for you, and your household. If you have a resident Weimaraner, you need to ask yourself the question, “Are they too dominant to accept another Weimaraner?” Should you get two Weimaraner vying for the top position within the home; this addition could go badly. You want to avoid this scenario. When adding the second Weimaraner, it is of utmost importance to lavish the current one with extra attention, and to lessen the fanfare for the new addition. They will get a lot of attention anyhow; however, if you make it all about them, and neglect your old buddy, what can you expect? Trouble will most likely follow. It might come clothed as destructive behavior; alternatively, it might take the path of utter depression. Both scenarios are best avoided.

Adding the second Weimaraner to the household is doable for the person (or family) that can be patient, and work through the process. Nonetheless, the choice of the pup needs to be carefully considered. Choosing a most engaging pup might lead you down the path of having a fur-flying experience. It is tricky-business, but as you can see, many have achieved this status.

  1. It’s one of my dreams to have two… but I’m afraid I’m not one of the candidates… but I still hope my parents will adopt a grey ghost. They love Easy to pieces, but they also see his mischief :o)
