Need advice re: Bentley/Ky
I have a small dilemma that I'm not sure how to handle, looking for advice. The way things normally work here since both dogs want to spend time with DH on the couch, Ky gets her time with him first, always. Bentley understands this and he's really good about occupying himself with toys until Ky gets down.
Since DH broke his arm it seems that both dogs know it and they both want to be on the couch with him at the same time. So far I've been keeping to the rules and only allow Ky up there first. The problem is, she doesn't get down then Bentley gets impatient and tries to front Ky off about it.
I understand that he wants his time with daddy too and Ky is hogging him but how do I handle this? Should I make Ky get down after a period of time so Bentley can have his turn?
We're doing so well with the dogs now so I don't want to screw this up. It's times like this that I get so confused after spending my life with only one dog at a time.
