We have two GSD Husky Mixes ... one for 2 years the other almost a month. My answer to the above question: "Frequently" latest was last night. Now the funny thing is, if one goes out, the other lays on the rug at the door and whines till the other comes back in. With 3 dog beds / mats in the den, they often sleep huddled in the same one and they are never more than 6 feet apart from one another. At the dog park, they ignore all the other dogs and only play with each other. We set out food bowls in separate rooms when new dog arrived, new dog walked over to see what old dog was eating and pushed her nose in to sample... old dog walked away and checked out new dog's bowl and sampled. After 3 weeks, they both eat out of same bowls ... they will start with the foyer bowls in morning, graze on that off on till empty .. and only when empty will they eat from the kitchen bowl ...weird.Did you ever have to deal with dog jealousy? I hope this situation is temporary, when Matilda gets older maybe he will se her as a dog female that he wants to breed with more than a competitor, even if I don't want them to breed.
The only thing they fight about is squeaky toys, all other toys no bother. As for the playing .... I always try and start it by interacting with both of them. Sitting on couch with knees at coffee table, one will approach from each side. Then I'll alternate playing with one, then the other. Do this with the squeaky toys and also with hand / paw jousting. Idea is letting them know that there's enough of a) me and b) squeaky toys to go around. There's nothing to get possessive about. It worked for two weeks, I am gonna have to work harder.
At least once a day they go out separately ...that's the time for one on one time. I did this with all my kids, we called the "special days". On one hand, it's hard to go to say "the aquarium" 3 times over two weeks with the same 90 minutes drive each way; on the other hand, each one was special as my memories of each one were unique.
The part that many dog owners don't like to hear is that this behavior is usually one they are at east partially responsible for. Many folks feel that corrective actions should not be employed; dog is doing something he's not supposed to do ? Distract him with something he likes ? Well there's something to be said for that in certain situations But it also can teach the dog to repeat the undesired behavior. The breed of the dog, while not an absolute, does come into play here.
There are many possible approaches to changing dog behavior. Particularly approaches will vary by breed, nurture (early life), environment, family dynamics and other factors. I was particularly taken by the paragraphs "Lack of Supervision" and "Rewarding Bad Behaviour" in the two part link below. Hate to clog the screen with multiple big boxes,so to use the links below,just delete the asterisks
Other owner experiences:
Try and absorb as much information you can .... while all behavior modification techniques can be of value, to my mind, husky owners are best served by experiences of other husky owners.
