HI, Im new here today. I have always dogsat my daughter's Australian shepherd, but she took the dog back! I decided to get a pup of my own and now I have a year old German shep mix. I still often watch the other dog while my daughter travels, so I have 2 young shepherds neither of whom have manners. Both are smart, and trainable, but I am overwhelmed. I now have both dogs for a week and my house is in trouble!!! They are both house trained and that's all I can say for them. I love the dogs but I need help, and I dont even know where to start...my shepherd chews the heck out of everything, the Aussie doesnt chew anything but her toys. Both girls are constantly competing for everything it seems.:dogohmy: When I put down the food both of them want the same food dish no matter which dish it is. This is the Aussie's home since she has always been here, but according to the new pupper, it's her home since there was no other dog here when she arrived. Helllpppp!
