Are Two Labradoodle Puppies Better Then One?

Two Puppies Better Than One?

Two Puppies

Dear John,

We recently have decided to get two puppies; male labradoodle’s, they are only 2 weeks today and we wont be getting them till mid OCT. At the time of deciding to get them me and my husband had figured it would be a good idea to get both since 1. we have no other pets, 2. we have a 1 acre lot, 3. I’m home 4 days out of the week, and 4. they would keep each other company. The reason I am writing is that a lot of people have told me that it was a bad idea to have two siblings from same litter at the same time. I was wondering if you had any advice on this matter. Do I have to worry about them not obeying me because they have each other, what about the alfa male, I was told I had to keep them separated the whole time and they would not be able to let free by themselves without them fighting.

Hi Simona,

Sometimes two puppies from the same litter work and sometimes it doesn’t. In my opinion, doing it this way more often then not carries a risk of more problems and complications then benefits as it leaves a lot to chance but it really depends on a range of factors. I wouldn’t do it so they have company.
