Okay its been forever since I had a puppy in the house and everything is in chaos right now lol..Chloe refuses to leave Brodi alone and I'm having near heart attacks cause Im worried Chloe's gonna break one of his bones..She doesn't seem like she is tryin to hurt him, she just wants to play non stop..I know this is all new to her but I really need some advice/tips on this whole thing..lol..Like eating , how do you go about feeding them both when Chloe is so hyper afterwards Im worried her getting bloat..Any advice would be great regarding a two boxer household cause I'm so stressed right now lol
Other then that Brodi is doing just fine..he goes potty on the papers, eats like a horse and sleep with us in bed last night which was hard at first and I think Chloe actually slept with one eye open all night.lol

I'm sorry I can't offer any advice to you because we only have Daisy but OMG I'M SOOOOOO EXCITED FOR YOU!
It sounds like Chloe is pretty excited too! I reckon she is going to be such a good big sister to Brodie! I can't wait to see pics Shari!

Where are the pics??? Lol, Shari, it will be fine....Chloe is learning about Brodi and vice versa...You know her better than anybody and can tell if she is being too rough, besides Brodi will also let her know as well....Feeding was tough when we brought Angel home, I would get hubby to help you with that, I had Marq get Angel's dish and I would take care of Samson..I fed them about 10 ft apart as well.....If you have to, take one into another room to feed, you may need to do that as I am sure Brodi is getting 3 meals? Congrats on the new arrival! Welcome home Brodi :)

I went through the same thing when I brought Zoe home back in December but dogs are really smart animals and let each other know when its too rough. Now she's a trooper and plays rough too. As far as the feeding goes, Xena likes Zoe's puppy food and Zoe likes Xena's adult food...incredible. So they must be separated but near one another...If i feed them far apart, Zoe always wanders over to see what Xena is doing and wont eat. So I put Zoe in the kitchen and Xena in the dining room which is separated by a baby gate. They each have their own food and since Zoe can see Xena, she eats just fine.

I tended to let Bo and Jetta work it out..if Bo got too rough, I just said "NO!" and he seemed to back down...as far as feeding, I put them in their crates to eat...and make them sit before I give them the food...this calms them down a bit before eating.

I also use seperation through a baby gate so they know each other and can still protect the little one....

Aw...yes, I remember it well...except we had TWO of them wanting to be ALL OVER PUA non stop...and they were about 55 pounds and she came home weighing in at all of 6 or 7!!! SO tiny...we made it...they were actually really good...I found that regular crate time was essential(naps...just chill time) she was great for the older dogs, though! Enjoy!
