An important advantage is that littermate puppies are fun to watch. Two puppies can provide hours of entertainment. Homeowners often find themselves turning off their TV just to watch them frolic, explore and play.
We took them out to the potty separately, tried to feed them separately (the previous owners fed all the puppies from the same bowl, so this has been a bit difficult), and tonight they sleep in separate rooms. Some of the most important skills for sibling puppies involve controlling excitement and excitement during play. Maybe having two puppies at a time sounds reasonable, but many dog trainers, breeders, and shelters say it's much better for everyone involved if you add just one puppy at a time to your family. Fortunately, there are a couple of ways you can teach your puppies to be more independent, even if they have to live in the same house.

One of the main issues sibling puppy owners have to deal with is the disadvantage of puppies getting too close together. In fact, responsible rescuers and breeders are more aware of the difficulties of raising two puppies at once, and may categorically refuse to give two. However, those who are determined enough, have a lot of patience, experience and time to raise each puppy individually can raise two well-behaved puppies who will ultimately be able to grow to their full potential or at least very close to it.
Puppies, both companion puppies to show and sports puppies, benefit from a well-directed positive reinforcement puppy class. I'm not going to deny that it's a lot of work, but I like puppies and I love training, so there it is.

Finally, you can bring two puppies and two caregivers, so that each puppy has its own person and, while they are in class, they have different class experiences. Skilled dog breeders are careful to place two puppies together in a house because they know how much work it is to raise both of them properly.
