Dodger and Diamond
(Yuma, Arizona )
I have two basset hounds at home. There's Diamond, girl, which belongs to my brother. Then there's Dodger, boy, which belongs to me. They are about a 1 1/2 months apart in age.
The problem was that when we brought Diamond home Dodger was already getting the hang of house training. He already knew who's room was who's and how to get our attention when he needed to go outside. So when we brought Diamond home Dodger started to go back on his training. Started doing his business where ever he pleased. So we started to have to kick both of them out and discipline Dodger when he was the one who did it.
Later on, they learned how to do it properly but that took a lot of discipline and doggie treats as rewards (since my dogs are as stubborn as mules but also partners in crime). To this day Diamond is still having problems with going outside but she's learning. Dodger is now behaving as he should have done since Diamond arrived.
