Default Reason # 492, why 2 (or more) puppies at once isn't a good idea

How's this for an annoying habit the two work together on:

Hermione gets right up behind my calves and then the moose, Hanna jumps full onto the front of me. I haven't gone down, yet. They are homicidal these little buggers.

Today Izzy and Ing were doing the same thing! And just yesterday Ingrid came flying out of the kennel like a bullet and nearly knocked me down. If Izzy (Isabel) had been behind me someone would have made a trip to the vet.

Today for the first time I had all four of them in Near Field together. That was interesting. Better yet, Near Field is like the lunar landscape: white, pitted, rock hard. I could have gone down so easy.

It is a conspiracy!!! I had 3 westies one time that would crawl up one anothers back to be tall enough to bite where it would hurt!! I only saw them do that once but it was enough for me to know that they carry out a plan of attack! I would be very careful!!

I don't know, I raised Babs and Jenna together, and then brought in Rushie when they were 5 months old, and when, and then seven months later had Heidi, Whit, and Tori. And I did that, titled them all and was working full time. It really depends on the dogs and your expectations. I think it is a little easier if you are not overwhelming the dog with tons of training, socialization, etc. I take my time in training them and am not expecting miracles by the time they are 6 months old.
I can usually get their CGC and RN by about 1 year, and by the time they are two, they are pretty much where I want them to be.
