Choosing two springer spaniel puppies from the same litter

I am going to look at some pups this week and am thinking of having 2. Am I best to have a dig and a bitch and what happens during the 'on heat' season?

Thank you NEW
by: Alfiesmom

We have two pups - a boy and girl from the same litter and everything I have read after getting them says DON'T do this! Thank you for this advice. I am planning on getting them fixed to prevent accidents. So far both pups are social, reasonable to train (I won't say easy as they are energetic and headstrong but will listen!) and a great addition to our family!

Spaniels from same litter
by: Lynn

Hi there

I have 2 ESS from the same litter even though the dog is L&W and the girl is B&W.

They are fine together and I would prefer and boy and girl as a dog 99% of the time won't attack a bitch, unless she has taken his ball away anyway!

With regards to when the bitch is on season it depends if you are going to breed from her otherwise if you have her spayed then the problem is solved.

We had our dog castrated when he was 6 months old although the vet said he would rather wait until he was 8-9 months old and he had had his 'hormones' but I then stated that I did not want his hormones anywhere near his sister! The bitch got spayed 3 months after her first litter. I did hear once that this can increase the size of the bitch but she is still very slight and small which is what we want.

Some people will be against having dogs from the same litter but as long as there is no breeding going on I don't see a problem and ours are very good company for each other.

It's fine to get two pups from the same litter, but don't breed them. Have them spayed and / or neutered as soon as your Vet says they're old enough.
