We can try a group trip. AD seems a lot calmer without hs big brother's bad infulence.

AdventureDog is a different dog at home - that's for sure. In camp, he was mostly silent and calm (except a few times when the others surprised him by wearing different clothing). We could set out food buffets without concern; he would come close but wouldn't steal. At home, we aren't even safe to leave a pair of shoes out if we leave, and he works himself into a frenzy barking or crying several times a day.

Btw we've never tried a canoe trip with a dog under 2 years old. It's easier if they've outgrown some of their puppy craziness. Also, it's not the worst idea to just take one dog on a trip - at least until that dog is near-perfect on a canoe trip, then try adding the 2nd dog.
