How Hard Are Two Puppies?
We've had our current Hav puppy for 4-1/2 weeks (picked him up when he was 9 weeks old). He's doing really well with potty training and is fitting into the family nicely. We may have the opportunity to get his littermate/brother, who is going back to the breeder after a month in another home. This is because of health issues within the family that initially bought him and not because of anything having to do with the puppy himself. I have no doubt that in the long run, having two Havs will make things easier. In the short run, though, how difficult are two puppies together? Would we be making a big mistake by adding another puppy into the mix? Are they more likely to pick up each other's bad habits without picking up the good, or does it work both ways? Our current pup is my first dog (hubby has had dogs in the past, but not recently), so I'm not an experienced dog owner. The kids of course are lobbying hard for the 2nd pup. Any thoughts/advice?
