    Default 2 male pups

    Well I took everyone's advice on here and have picked pups according to their personality. I have ended up with a very affectionate and active male blenheim and a more laid back male ruby from same litter. Can anyone advise if 2 brothers is a good combination? Or would it be better for male and female...there is a ruby female also but more keen on ruby male? TIA x

    Most people recommend a male/female combiination. However, I have 2 boys that are half-brothers and they are the best of friends. They are 7 months apart. Most people also recommend waiting longer to add a second pup for many reasons, but I'm sure there are people on this board that have siblings and they would be able to tell you how it worked for them. What does your breeder recommend? It would be really hard to try to housetrain 2 puppies at the same time - it's hard enough training 1! Personally, I would wait a year or so to get the second pup, because once the first dog is older it makes training the second puppy a lot easier since they take the lead of the older dog. I also feel like my older dog bonded closer to us than our second dog, because he only had us (and the cats!) for 7 months while the younger one grew up with the older one from day one...Good luck whatever you decide, and we can't wait to see pictures!

    Default Karlin's thread

    Karlin's thread "Considering a Cavalier" and the separate thread "one puppy or two" is essential reading.

    I hope all goes well - there is an ideal way and that is to wait until Number One is estabilshed in the home and trained.

    Thanks for the advice and have read Karlin's thread. Still going for two though...just wondering if two brothers would be a good combo or girl and boy?

    Congratulations! I have three boys (not brothers) ages 5 yrs., 3 yrs., & 2 yrs. They get along great. I've never had a female dog so I can't help you with the dynamics of that. I always fall for the male dogs.
