We are bringing home our 2nd JRT in a few weeks. Training with our first puppy went great. We crate trained him and eventually gave him the run of the house. But how do we crate train the 2nd dog while the 1st dog is out and about? Will they bark and whine at one another? Will this make the 2nd dog aggressive towards the 1st? I'm open to any other helpful hints about bringing home a second dog!!
I don't know if I will be much help, but I have seperate room for my crated dogs. I have no problem with them seeing the other one run around becuase they are behind a closed door. They do well through the night that way. good luck

We never had a problem with it. Each dog has to "earn" the right not to be crated. We never left ours alone uncrated till they were each close to 1 year old. We weren't worried about accidents-they each were perfectly reliable about housetraining. We worried about what they would chew and destroy!
Maggie was a little over 2 years old when we got Emma. At first, they were both crated where they could see each other, but Maggie soon had run of the house while Emma remained crated. There was never a problem with this arrangement.
