@Deejayelle: You won’t know until you try, it depends on their personalities. With the Cavy being a little older I would’ve thought may help.

Most dogs will be friendly towards other dogs if they’re raised around them, but they are like people and have their own personalities, so there is no guarantee that they’ll like other dogs. I’ve seen puppies as young as 3 months old that already didnt like being around other dogs.

@Deejayelle:  It certainly can’t hurt to try!

My male Pomeranian is incredibly grumpy to other dogs, he is such an old man at heart. DH’s family has three huge over 100 pound dogs. Even though he had met them when they were younger it took us a while to really be comfortable with them all together. Now they sit in a room together and pretty much ignore each other without issue. So it takes time and patience and a few obedience corrections may be required but eventually it should be fine.

Of course it’s possible! Even more likely because they will be young…young puppies are incredibly adaptable and friendly. Just monitor them closely and make sure neither is being rough or aggressive with the other. I’ve seen the unlikliest of dogs become friends, even when older, so again them being puppies is huge. You should definitely take pictures and post them here 🙂

ETA: My puppy is a 9 month old mastiff…she’s enormous, but has the heart of a much smaller dog. She’s been around dogs since the day she was cleared by the vet, and is very,. very gentle and sweet with all dogs (except when it’s obvious that she’s with a dog who likes to tumble and play rough at the dog park). I think the key is to definitely socialize the heck out of all puppies, but definitely the big ones!

The earlier you socialize, the better, and the more frequent too. Puppies will grow up to be friendly if they have lots of interactions from the time they are born until 6-8 months (best window time frame). All dogs are different of course, so you’ll just have to wait and see what works best for you guys. But the more they come across different breeds, sexes and sizes, the better off they’ll be.

It’s all about how you raise your dogs. Yes you can socialize them. 🙂
