Hey all, So I've been researching the idea for a while now of introducing a second dog to the family. We currently have an 18 month old cavapoo female, spayed and shes a bundle of fun! She absolutely adores other dogs and ALWAYS wants to play. When we go to the park she's interested in every single dog out there and couldn't care less for any human attention! We do have a busy home life, with a daughter and an older (laid back) cat, she does get one on one attention but this is in short bursts and always snuggles up with us all evening on the sofa. We experienced some issues with separation anxiety in the early days but this has massively improved and no longer cries for us when we go to bed or leave the house - this is a habit I really don't want coming back to haunt us! I do think she would benefit from the company of another dog in the home, as will we. We are huge animal lovers and fully prepared to take on the commitment and finances of a second dog. My only worries are getting it right and will it work or become a nightmare! We have tried our best to search for a dog that (based on research), would be compatible for our girl. We have chosen a male miniature dachshund. Around 8 months old. so not a complete baby but young enough to learn and adjust (hopefully), to our family. Has anyone been in a similar situation and can advise on their experience? We really want to make this work for the whole family and have everyone's best interests at heart, including the new member. The last thing we want is to regret the decision! After looking online, peoples experiences tend to be 50/50 on the situation!!
