so me and my girlfriend r thinking about getting a second puppy. our female gsd is 4 months old and were thinking of getting her brother who is same age but not potty trained. were just worried about if it will be hard to get him up to speed with her training, that hes gonna make her bad idk. what do u guys think is it a good idea? i really want to i would love to have 2 especially brother and sister GSD's. i think its double the fun lol am i wrong?
Don't do it! :eek:

Continue to train, love, exercise, socialize your current pup. And if 4 or 5 years from now, when your current puppy is 'practically perfect' you can think about adding another dog. Not fair to EITHER puppy if you double up now.

Take all the 'extra' time and money you must have to think about adding another puppy and instead use it to pay/attend puppy classes, socialize your puppy, hike/swim your new puppy.

Here's more info about having 2 puppies:
