    Default Hi! Pups and I are new here with a question

    Hi everyone! I posted a full introduction on the intro page. Long story short ... I own a 16 week old pup named Tonka Truck. He has been so easy to potty train. Also already know several commands like sit and stay. I knew I want a playmate for him one day but was waiting to get him potty trained. The perfect pup came along and I said why not lol. Tonka is potty trained already. So Friday I am picking up a little girl. I am so excited but also nervous. Should I keep them together so new puppy will pick up on Tonka potty habits or will new puppy mess up Tonka in his potty training? I just don't want him to regress because he hasn't had an accident in the house in over 2 months. Any advise on raising 2 pups together is appreciated! I am a stay at home mom so I am with my pup all the time.

    Hi!
    That is awesome you're getting 2.... I have litter mates and they are both 1 yr 5 months now. It was very hard and a lot of work having puppies at the same time, but totally worth it. We work full time, but we staggered our shifts so that the dogs were never crated longer than they could handle. We just did everything in tandem. For potty training, we set the alarm during the night and brought them outside every 2 hours, then every 3, then every 4,etc. yes we were super sleep deprived but I can say with 100% certainty that these dogs are housebroken. I trust them absolutely. Just keep an eye on them and you will know their signals.
    They are the best of friends and I have never regretted having two. They get into trouble together, but they are so funny.

    They went to puppy school, and an invaluable suggestion was to make sure to separate them from time to time. This was very hard for me, i.e. walk them separately or take one for a car ride and leave the other at home. Thank goodness my BF was strong enough and calm enough to practice this, because when my boy was 10 months he had to have luxating patella surgery. Layla wasn't happy but since she had been apart from Wilbur before, this was much less stressful for her, and for him. For 2 months we had to keep them separated (to prevent rough play etc) until Wilbur was strong enough.....he was baby - gated and confined in another room. So it was good this wasn't their first time being physically separated.

    Good luck and keep us posted!!!!!

    Thank you momma2bullies! Glad to hear you don't regret having two. I am up for the challenge because I know it will be worth all the work.
    I also will keep that in mind about separating them some just in case one day they have to be apart.

    I can't help on the puppy advice, I rescued Jax when Tank was 4 and Jax 2. They did become awesome buddies all the way till the end. I loved having two bullies, they were so funny together. Was hard to walk them anywhere, people were always stopping us.
    I now have one 4 month pup, would love to have another for him but my step children have a miniature schnauzer and two is enough for now.

    good luck with the training, can't wait to see more pictures!

    Aww thank you Cali~Jenny! I am really lucky... As a child my mom and dad could never afford me an English bulldog . I wanted one my whole life so when I got married I saved $ and purchased one. She is now my angel as she is I heaven. I was ready for another one and now I got 2!! I am just in heaven and feel so blessed. This breed is not a dog breed they are little humans.

    my babies are very close in age, Molly born in April and Diesel born in June so they grew up together also, I 100% agree to do things one on one so the pups are use to being separated it's good for them not to be so dependent on each other ... as for the potty training I would just set the schedule and take both out at the same time the more consistent you are the easier the training will be, once they get use to the schedule and know what is expected of them they will just settle right in! congrats on the babies and good luck, it's gonna be an awesome time!
