The dobe needs a padded bed & the husky needs more work on vocalization. One dog's nails may need to be dremeled more often, the husky will need more brushing. Even though they are similar ages & both dogs, they aren't the same. (Since the dobe is more social than the other - that is the dog that does the mom taxi runs with you, the husky might like quiet late walks around the block before bed when the dobe is already snuggled in for the night.)
What about making their crates 'off limits' to the other dog - so that they always have a safe place to be, not only from friends of the kids but from each other? If you can think of them as individuals, rather than as 'the dogs' it might be easier to look at what will help them mature & behave the way you want them to.
Good luck - it does sound like tons of work! (Keep reminding yourself, the work you put in now will be extremely rewarding later.)
Right now, their crates are off limits... and its probably weird, but they each have their own set of habits. like sacha will pull all her bones out of her crate and leave them about, where as justice will take them and put her chew bones on her bed and her toys in her crate. I can usually for the most part tell who has done what because they have their own way of doing things... like justice, shes not one for grabbing papers off the tables, but sacha is known for it. any given chance when one of my kids comes home from school and sets it down, she'll try to swipe it. Justice is the TP monster... LOVES to get into the TP if someone forgets to close the bathroom door.
I'm beginning to see that I get to choose who and what they do.
I definitely never considered it that way I guess. lol
I'm beginning to see that not everybody gets to do it, or get a treat or whatever, but that I get to choose who does...
the estrogen content in my house is high... There is me, My two 5 yr old girls, and 2 female pups, vs. my husband and the male cat lol With the girls we just got into doing that in order to avoid fights between them, UNLESS its earned or something obviously just for them, giving them both something to keep everyone under wraps.... Primarily because of one of the children and her needs.
