Geting two puppies at the same time is a great idea because it solves one of the most common problems for new puppies--BOREDOM. Having a play and sleep buddy just makes every day more enjoyable. Most of the time one of the puppies is a faster learner and can provide an example for the other pup to imitate, helping with housebreaking and socialization. We all want our puppy to love and comfort us whenever we are around but we forget about how empty a puppy's time can be when we are not there. And for many owners there often is as much time or more that we are not around. Consider two puppies if you are not a stay at home parent.
