    Well done on your new pupsters but i have to agree with this post! I used to veterinary nurse and the amount of problems we had with litter mates fighting, especially bitches was unreal. Sorry to put a dampner of things for you. X

    Do you know anyone with vaccinated dogs that will help you socialise them? Vital with such a breed.

    They have missed out on their most important period already. I'd be carrying them around as much as possible until they can be walked properly.

    Are they pedigree? They look rather "typey" to me.

    exactly - it is VERY important to get tham out and about - carry them round (in your arms/in a sling/in a backpack turned round onto your front with a towel in the bottom etc) everywhere to see, hear and smell everything new. they are already a bit older than the first critical socialisation period which is up to about 12 weeks - so it is very sad that they have missed out so far :(

    and yes if you know people with nice and vaccinated dogs, get them socialising with them ASAP!

    but get reading up now on what could happen and how to prevent it now rather than leaving it til something bad happens.

    they look lovely and I wish you the best of luck :)

    Stunning puppies. Loads and loads of luck. Get them out and about asap, get them registered at your vet as staffies asap and ensure you have your pedigree (assuming you have one) to hand at all times cos I suspect you are going to need it.

    Don't tell me - your friend owns both Mum and Dad and let them breed "because they'd make such cute puppies" and then couldn't get rid of them all, hence youhaving two.

    Why are they not vaccinated yet?

    I'm another one that agrees with this post, there are a lot of people that do have success with having more than one bitch but I always think of the saying '' dogs fight for breeding rights, bitches fight for breathing rights''

    Must admit that's what I thought when I saw the pictures, beautiful pups though.

    if u plan to take them to classes urself i would recommend u take only one at a time to give them the chance to interact with other dogs on their own, its important for their own confidence and also they need to develope into individualls instead of depending on each other, what will happen if they are together all the time.

    To minimise any problems u need to walk, train and socialize them seperately as much as possible, otherwise u will have problems of them depending on each other and it will cause allsorts of problems in the future. Good luck.

    Brilliant news, I loved puppy classes great for you to get support as well as the puppies learning.

    Socialisation, socilaisation, socialisation :thumbup:

    Good that you've managed to take them out in a buggy - fab idea :)

    They are gorgeous looking girls. What are their names?

    I'd also make sure they get walked and socialised seperately so they don't become 100% reliant on each other, this will help them bond with you and socialise with other dogs.

    They are stunning pups.

    Obviously the people shouldn't of bred but complaining about it isn't going to do anything now.

    Good luck x

    Beautiful dogs but I would be careful they are very typey. Take them out as much as possible the buggy is a good idea, introduce them to as many vaccinated dogs as possible and as many people, sights and sounds as possible. Good luck train them seperately rather than together and it might work out ok it's very hard to raise two puppies together as you've already been told
