Have you ever wondered what it’s like to raise two puppies at the same time?

In this episode, I dive into the challenges of raising littermates. We discuss the concept of ‘littermate syndrome’ and the potential problems that can arise when raising two puppies together. I emphasize the importance of individual training and socialization for each puppy, as well as the need for three times the effort compared to raising just one. Join me to learn more about:

  • Challenges and risks of raising two puppies at the same time, specifically littermates
  • Understanding ‘littermate syndrome’ and its potential problems
  • Tips on minimizing risks and raising littermates as individuals
  • The importance of providing separate space, toys, and training for each puppy
  • Why raising two puppies at once requires three times the effort
Raising two puppies at the same time can be a rewarding but challenging experience. By understanding the potential issues and implementing individual training and socialization, you can ensure that each puppy grows up to be a well-adjusted and happy dog.
