hey welcome, your girls sound lovely but i never advise people to take on too puppy's from the same litter, and to be honest the breeder should have known better. get them used to being apart. the fact that you are crating them separately is probably a good thing as pups can go one of 2 ways they can fight each other and do some real damage to both each other and their owners when trying to separate them(have seen this a a couple of times) or the two pups are inseparable and Will run off together and not listen to a word you say. i know a woman who bred her dogs herself and kept two of the pups, the pups are very attached to each other and are going off on their own own away from the rest of the pack(she has 5 dogs mum, dad, son, daughter and another bitch).

i wish you the best with them but make sure you do a lot of work with them on their own, even just taking one with you and leaving her in the car while you nip into the supermarket.

would love to see photos of your girls.


my girls are all related i have 2 sets of half sisters and my 2 elsist are the ants of my youngest 2. Gypsy and Inca share the same dad and different mums, they are both 4 years old but there is 11 weeks between them. Echo is 2 years old and we just got her little half sister Delta a couple of weeks ago she is 14 weeks old. they share the same dad, who is a half brother to Gypsy and Inca from a poodle litter.

aww they are lovely. if you have a friend or someone els in the house with you its a good idea if you going to the shops to take 1 pup with you and get you friend to hold the pup outside the shop. the earlier you separate them the easier your life will be later.

sorry for banging on about this, but iv seen things get very bad between sibling from the same litter and its very hard to correct it if you don't set things in place as pups. i know two sets of siblings who have almost ripped each other apart one set shredded their owners hands when she tried to brake the fight up.
i know and other two sets who are very clingy one set only last week ran off together because they got spooked by something they haven't been found yet.

you need to make sure that you are the center of their world not each other you need to be the most important thing in their life.

another problem you could have if you don't get them used to being on their own is that one may be less confidant than the other and if you have her on her own if she isn't used to it then she could start lashing out at other people or dogs.

sorry i just really want you to get off the the best Start with them.
