Owning 2 dobermans...

Hi everyone! I don't post much but am on here quite often learning new things. We just recently added our 8 week old baby girl Blaze to our family. She is a handful...much different than my Bella who is 16 months old now.

My question...is it normal for the 2 of them to rough house and play non-stop? Sometimes I worry about the little one hurting my older one. I only let them play while I am supervising. Just a concerned momma, I guess

Very normal. Teach them to settle.

Only just recently. I've never owned 2 dobermans at once but have had a female German Shepherd and a female Lab who got along fine. I will have to watch them carefully in the beginning to assure their are no aggression issues. I am hoping its just the puppy wanting to play and my 16 month old just being excited to have a playmate.

Only let them play closely supervised until the little one gets larger. The older dog can inadvertently hurt the baby with play that gets too rough.
I agree that they can learn to settle also. Obviously the older dog will have to learn this first!
I usually let them have some playtime, then separate and give everybody something to do. I have adjacent outdoor areas so I can separate and let them have time out in the sun where they can see each other and play bow through fencing but not roughhouse.

We have had 2 female dobes. They were 8 months apart in age. In the begining they would play & we would randomly stop it. Our term was game over. We did this on day one & we always established that we can control the situation. Since they were both so young they never knew any different therefore we never had any issues. I think you always need to be alpha!!!

I have two girls, ten months apart in age, and they have always gotten along great! They do play rough, and have since we got the youngest. She is actually bigger than her older sister now but even when she was smaller she was a toughie. So far no issues with same sex, the only thing we deal with is a bit of jealousy from time to time. And I think you can get that no matter what the mix.
