how would you BEGIN a group bond?

Option one - in a neutral pen 7 foot x 3foot

Option Two - in a neutral pen, octagon 'puppy pen'

Option Three - In a dog crate

Option Four, In a dog crate in the car


thanks x

I'd go for option 2, small ish space but easy access if needed, could be tough getting into a dog crate quickly :shock:

I put my new couples in a run for a few mins, if looks good, I then put them in a pet carrier together for 10 mins or so, so that they have to be together, transfer scents and can't chase each other! then back in the run,it works well :wave:

I wouldn't pick a dog crate either - it may be ok for a pair bonding, but if separate buns try to fight with each other & you have to separate, you will have a nightmare clambering about.:lol:

I always use a small pen - something easy to climb into if need be :shock:

I would go with option 2 as well, just make sure you think they are 110% together, then leave them another week to make sure!
Hope everything goes well :)

Hope everything goes well. I would go for option one, and possibly reduce space when you know no fights are breaking out. I'd want one to be able to get away if they were being chased.
Not sure how big a puppy pen is?
