Question Would getting another Brittany be OK?

I'm thinking about getting another Brittany in the next year or so. I have two adult cats and a 9-month-old female Brittany. I have a medium-sized securely-fenced lawn and a large house. I'm young and single, and I'm also outdoorsy so I don't mind high-energy dogs. I have had experience with sporting dogs, and my current Britt is good with other dogs.Does this sound OK for another Brittany? It's a tough choice. I've already picked out a female name: Scarlett.

It sound slike you have the perfect home for a Brittany. The only question I would ask myself if I were you is whether you are happy with where you are training your first Brittany. Dog #2 will learn a lot from dog #1 so if dog #1 is well-trained, you are in good shape. If dog #1 has bad habits, dog #2 will pick up on them. And if dog #1 isn't all that well trained, it may even learn some bad habits or silly puppy stuff from dog #2. I thin only you can answer that so that's the best I can do for ya!

You sound like an ideal home for another brittany. My only query is whether you definitely want another bitch? If your current bitch tends to be very dog friendly and happily allow other dogs in her home, with her toys etc then fine, if you have any reservations on this front a dog may be a safer choice statistically.

my parents have had Brittnay's for more than a few years, and they always have 2.. They seem to love the company, now their Brittnay's are on the small size, and the ones they have had are always sweet and laid back.. I say go for it!
