Hello and Welcome from Dallas TX!

I'm so glad you are listening to the almighty wise wisdom of DT. haha. There are some really GOOD Doberman breeders on this forum actually.

I know that it is highly advised not to get litter mates though, even two puppies at the same time. Each pup needs one-on-one attention and sometimes when you have two pups at the same time, it's hard to do that. Then you have double the work, double the feeding, double the vaccinations, double the poo, double the housebreaking...

Again, welcome, stick around you will learn A LOT on this forum

Hey and welcome, good choice about aruff ranch.

I would also definitely NOT recommend getting two puppies at the same time, and more more more NOT to get siblings.

do some research on the forum about these issues

Hi and welcome. If you are thinking about getting 2 puppies at the same time I would highly recommend not doing that. Research that a bit more.

Hi and welcome from Florida. I would also advise about not getting 2 puppies at the same time. They tend to bond to each other rather than to you. Good info on DT

Welcome to DT and keep researching!

I now can haz a sister?



If you are not fully health testing and titling your Dobermans, I'm not buying. I'm not a sucker for a greeder, back yard breeder or puppy miller. I've done my research......have you???

Same issues, same problems. Not advisable. Once you have a well trained, well bonded dog on your hands, then add another. Wait at least a year, but even more is better.

Welcome

Welcome from Missouri - If you are an experienced Dobe owner you might be successful with 2 but I never recommend it nor would I place 2 in a first time Dobe owner home. Just something to consider.
