Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you today!Most breeders agree that getting puppies at the same age and same litter is not advised. Typically at least a six month separation between them is best because there will be a more clear cut hierarchy but also raising two puppies of the same age and the same litter can be quite challenging. I have a close friend who is a breeder and always advises against this and when she agrees to do so against her better judgement a large portion of them return one or the other within a six month periodI have had specific conversations about this with her and 75% + do return one or both of the puppies in this scenario due to conflicts between the puppies, the amount of work and time consumption, and frustration by the new adoptees.So from my experience and what I have learned from breeders I would advise against this and try to separate two puppies by a six month + period if at all possibleI hope this makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you tonight!
