Hi Mr Dobie! and welcome from the Pacific NW.

Just curious... but to pick up on what Meadowcat said: How did you end up with two three month old pups?

MC mentioned "littermate syndrome". Without trying to be an alarmist, it is a very real issue. Especially in Dobe pups.

Me, personally, I have always spread my boys by 2-3 years in age. Even pups who are not actual siblings, can have fairly serious training, bonding and socialization issues when raised concurrently with another dog close to the same age. Should you choose to keep both pups, you should probably do some serious research as MC suggested. If they are the same sex (either male or female), at some point you and your pups could have a very bad situation sometime in the future..

I've been there and would not recommend it to the average Doberman owner.

Best to you and your pups.
