You all know about my brother. the kids and Leo moving in. This little cutie should be moving in within the next week or two, if my brothers wife stops being a mole. Fingers crossed sometime next week. I thought this wasn't happening for another month or two and mum wasn't sure if she was going to let Leo stay for sure. He'll be enrolled in puppy obedience and a socialisation play group at the same place so so far he'll have a good start when he gets here. So.. My brother is a slack dog owner and doesn't do much with Leo and won't. To make my life easier and the fact I am so in love with Leo and he's a SBT, I'm going to work with Leo. I have been reading and learning a lot over the years, I've changed and matured. I now can drive so I'm learning so much more because of dog trainers and such. I want to try my best with Leo. Before he comes, can anyone offer any advice they think that'll be important? Anything important things I should read? I have been reading a bit already. Adding a third dog to the family, did anyone notice a change in the current dogs they had? Or the relationship they had with one another? What do you like and don't like about having a third dog? I know time is a big one. I'm going to have to invest a lot in the dogs since Serenity's issues are being worked on and Leo being a pup, will need a lot of work. Sunny is the easy dog thankfully.. But I know I need to fit in time for him. Any general advice on a third dog home? I'm all ears. I know the basic rules. I'm nervous because he's a SBT, a high energy pup and I want to do right by him but I'm also excited because I have learnt so much more and I can do right by him and help my brother out so his dog isn't a nut case with no training in the future. I have been wanting a SBT pup SO badly so this is awesome, he ISN'T mine. He is my brothers. Though, the day my brother moves out, I don't know what will happen. At the moment I'm teaching him and I'm prepared knowing, he may end up leaving with my brother. At least I'll gain experience with a SBT and raising a pup, better then I have in the past. On another good note, my brothers kids will be here one week on and one week off which will be awesome because Serenity will get a whole week without them every second week. Mum is taking me seriously with Serenity now and we are fixing up her kennel and the yard. I've had a chat with my brother, step-dad and mum, we are on the same page. Mum will talk to my other sister for me. So, things are looking good, things are being sorted out. Now, hopefully Serenity will warm up to Leo pretty quickly! Life is defiantly going to get interesting. I'm not worried anymore. Everyone is preparing. I know my life is going to be taken over by kids and dogs but a well. He'll be enrolled in puppy obedience and a socialisation play group at the same place so so far he'll have a good start when he gets here. I cannot wait to bond with this little guy.. I can't wait to train, play and let him sleep inside. So excited. I'm a tad nervous having a Bully Breed around again but I hope it all works out well.
