My husband and I purchased two Pomeranian brothers at 8 weeks old. We were told by a trainer they could be together, though everything on the Internet says to keep them apart so they develop their own identities. We don't know what to believe. They are 3 months now. They play "fight" together well but they are still doing urine marking; we worry they won't bond with us and become too reliant on each other. When we pick them up they bite at us and often whine when apart from one another. Where is the best place to help us get all of the answers we need? Do we need a trainer? Do we just separate them until they're older? How do we know whom to believe when it comes to training Pomeranian brothers?

Babies do well together when bought as a pair, less anxiety from one environment to another. You can start simple obedience training, I use positive reinforcement and treat training with my guys and it will strengthen the bond between you and the boys. With the poms, they are such a vivacious breed - you have to start from early on being the alpha. Believe me, I know it is hard. They are so adorable but it will make a happier household in the long run. The potty problems at this age are normal. You must remember it can take a little while with the poms. They are so small, their little organs take a while to develop. Repetitions and schedules is all I can say. Also, it is a good idea to get the babies neutered when they are old enough so the little boys do not graduate to marking their territory. This will also ward off certain cancers later on. Good luck with your sweethearts!
