The second dog in the house. +

Answer # 1:

Take same-sex people. There may be clashes among the female bitch, the hierarchy in the pack will not go anywhere, the males' skirmishes are not so harsh and severe. As in a bitch with each other

Answer # 2:

The most optimal is the castration of the male. The roof will not be demolished, well, maybe the first time ... Then it will get used. I have a cat and cat lived 8 years, and still lived together))))

Answer # 3:

The roof will not be demolished. If you castrate on time.

Answer # 4:

Two males.

Answer # 5:

Skirmishes between males are completely unnecessary, many of my friends live two males without problems, and not castrated.

Answer No. 6:

Maybe there will not be hassles. The friend took the second dog, at that time she already had a Central Asian sheepdog. Both bitches. And you know, no hassles, friends. I was still very surprised that the bitch with the bitch got along so well.
At the same time another girlfriend did not go through such a number with bitches, they did not make friends, but were fierce enemies.

Answer No. 7:

For me, the best option - same-sex dogs. There was an experience of keeping two bitches - a poodle and a Doberman. Now the males are Doberman and Fr. bulldog. We do without hassles.

Answer No. 8:

I have a neutered male, on a branch during the heat, he even sneezed at all. She castrated after 1.5 years.

Answer No. 9:

I support Suslov's answer. Although I used to have 4 males. Uncastrated. Confrontation ... hmm, well, it was naidenyshi. At first they ... got used. Then sometimes there were ... omissions. Nothing serious. And not so that from under the ferula order is fixed.
Maybe I played a lot with them and energy was spent in such war games. Maybe, as luck would have it. So it is possible and without castration of males to contain cum forte manus, of course.

Answer No. 10:

In bitches more bloody disassembly than in males, thoseFight, so they are fighting. Two males get along well in one house, even if at home they have some of their claims to each other, then in the street it's a force))) even more, if you take a second puppy - the elder will help in education. Many friends and keep - the male adult and take him to a puppy, it's a dog.

Answer No. 11:

If the second dog is from puppies, then skirmishesMay not be at all, if you immediately identify the puppy hierarchy, well, the maximum that he will try to take the lead in adolescence, the adult dog will put it in place and that's it. At me as a rule the second dog appeared when the first was already at the declining age, at such раскладе skirmishes was not in general. About 2 bitches, I do not consider, because this is not your option.

Answer No. 12:

You'd better take a dog of the opposite sex.
