Training Inseparable Sibling Puppies

I am training two 12 week old male Havanese siblings that are virtually inseparable. I've told the owners that they need to create some individuality between them, but I although they keep yessing me to death and that they understand, I do not believe anything is being done about it.

I've been working with each pup separately, but when I work with one outside, they know that the other is inside and keeps wanting to go back in, in the mean time, the other is whining inside to get out to his brother.

I've also tried working them at the same time like a mini group, but that didn't work since all they want is to play with each other.

What I'm going to try during the next lesson is to take one off the property, to a park a block away and see if I can get in a better session.

I could use some additional suggestions.

YOur doing good so far....for the whining try this.


Put one dog in a room and set up a baby gate. So one dog is in the room and the other is out.

pay 99% of your attention to the one dog your working with BUT everytime the other dog settles down, or is quiet etc etc toss them a treat. Don't say anything just toss it at them...

If your consistant you'll have one dog working with you and one sitting quietly....slowly work up to being further and further away from the dog thats waiting.

Good luck.

Thank you for your reply. I had actually tried something similar, but that didn't work either.

During the last training session, I took each one off property and separately worked with each. It took a few minutes until they stopped looking for each other, but we ended up with about a 30 minute good training session.

I keep telling the owners to separate them as much as possible, but when you are not there, of course you don't know what's happening.

I have seen this between two giant schnauzers... the owners even brought them to the same puppy class and I had to help hold the one who was not being "trained" at the time. It stunk LOL dang thing almost took my arm off. At one point I said to heck with it and treated the dog as if it were mine and put him in a down stay, which he eventually learned to do without bothersome and calmed down in the process. Wonder if the one who is not being trained is put in a position like a sit stay or down stay and work slowly with that maybe it will help? Hope that made sense... allergies bad benedryl kicking in LOL

Taking your dog off the property is a good idea. That is good you got 30 minutes for training. Don't give up!

Good Luck!
