Dog Obedience Problems: How Other Dogs Can Help

Dog obedience problems can be overwhelming. Here are some ways in which other dogs can help you solve your dog obedience problems.


Many dog obedience problems are the result of poor socialization. Regular contact with people and other dogs helps your dog learn how to behave.

Problems Related to Separation Anxiety

Dogs are social creatures and prefer to be around their owners and other dogs. Some dogs develop separation anxiety because they have been left alone too often in their lives.

The company of another dog in the home can help with separation-anxiety related issues, such urinating/defecating in the home, howling and barking, and destroying property while you're away.

Learning His Place

An older dog will often gently discipline a younger dog. This can help solve dog obedience problems because he will learn his place and behave more appropriately.
