Now dang it , What was the original question here ? Wait a second - I have to go back up and check it .
Oh yeah - About getting a second
Amir - Welcome to DT ! We have had several Pairs of Dogs - 2 pair of Dobermans with a Aussie - They were great ! We have also had Doberman pairs . This may sound crazy to yeah - but when you have 2 Dobermans together - It's not double the work , more like X's 5 sometimes - lol No kidding ! The first pair was a spread of 5 years , and now - it's going to be the same amount - both were to be sooner than that , like 3 or 4 years but things just happened - It looked like we were going to get Mr. Business a new Sister at 4 - but the dog lost the littler , which was only one to begin with , But were still working on it . I agree that 3 to 4 year range would be great to do .
From our ( my ) personal experiences - If I had 2 Doberman pups only 15 months apart and they acted like Mr. Business did -- I would not be typing this response here on DT ---- I would be in the nut house
Like someone said - 15 months , they have a ton of pup in them , I think it takes males longer to lose the pup more than the females - anyway the ones we have had , that's what has happened .
You want to have time in between them to get the first one trained - take it to puppy classes , maybe some good OB classes and have her in control - Work with her and work with her - So when you get the second one you don't have 2 pups - but a well mannered girl .
Ours always got along fine - play together , eat together and sleep together - BUT - there was 2 times that Kasia gave Ali the teeth look with a lite growl , which both the wife and I witness's - And Put a stop to that right there and it didn't take much either ! If we were not here , I have no idea what would have happened . When we leave , they were not left together - One stayed here in my office the other had the run of the house . We just never trusted the 2 together and us not here .
As far as 2 vs only one - We lost a gal last fall and down to 1 - it is just too damn quite here
And we sure miss the Chaos - lol And if you get another - you will under what I'm saying
We are fortunate - make that very fortunate - I'm self employed as well as my Lovely wife , so there is one us here almost all the time - So can not address the doggy day care . Speaking for our Dobers - and knowing them like the back of my hand ( Our Hands ) it would not been a good mix - reason is they all act like there owner = A big A-hole
Stick around and ask questions - its a lot of fun on here + a few million years of experience to help you out
