We currently have an 11 year old black lab and a cat. DW wants to rescue a 1 year old black lab to join the family.
Our pets are very quiet and well behaved and we can leave them together in the motorhome for a few hours without having to worry about disturbing our neighbours.
I wont leave our dogs in our motorome if they are going to bark.
I wonder what the chances of a one year old Lab being quiet and not barking in the presence of another dog and cat. hmmmmmm any thoughts? </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
My guess would be that the answer is "no". We have a 14yo German Shepard who is very protective but only barks when "necessary". She is the perfect traveling dog.
We rescued a German Shepard (she is now 3yo) that is a nice dog but she has "issues". Unfortunately, she does not like to be alone and will whine and bark when we leave her inside the RV. We have found that if we leave the ac or fan on plus the TV with the volume a little above normal it doesn't allow her to hear noises outside and this keeps her quiet.
I would suggest that some break-in period for the new pup would be a good idea before leaving it alone.
