Part 3: Raising two Labrador Retrievers "at the same time" - A few things we have learned

I started this topic here and continued it here in responce to a reader's question as to what we had done specific to having a two dog houseold and raising two puppies at the same time.

Today I found a nice article on the web that addresses this topic very well.

Many of the pit falls listed here we saw first hand and had to address as they came up. I hope you find the information helpful.

Another good article can be found here:
Yes, even the experts say you have your work cut out for you.

Is it worth it? Yes, it is!! Here is another womans perspective on the joys of a two dog household.

I found your blog via google, and 1 month into having 2 lab puppies (boy/ girl) from the same litter.

Did you follow the guidelines in the second article (feed, walk, sleep, play separately) verbatim, or take some separation more than others?

Thanks
Edward

Thank you for writing this blog. Everything on the Web is so negative about raising two labradors. You are a welcome breath of fresh air.

I am so grateful for your blog. I didn't realize how much negativity there was about raising two pups together. Ours are now 5 months old and we have been training them and walking them separately. We also have 2 crates and they don't seem too upset when we separate them for different reasons. Now the teething has begun... this is the current challenge. Thank you so much for your positive advice!
