Have you trained before? If not, don't start with two dogs! I don't know how many ducks you shoot a day, but one dog can handle a pretty heavy load. Also you will learn so much while training your first dog and also make sooo many mistakes. Why make the same mistakes on two dogs. Get one dog where you want it and then try getting a second one. Like shrp said, it is a ton of work with two pups. I picked up a second shorthair about 2 months ago and I was amazed at how much more work it was.

Something I just remebered also about older dogs, in upland hunting at least, which I think you said you are interested in, young dogs can become too dependent on older dogs if run together too much. You need to let a young dog learn where birds are on there own and let them find some one there own or they will just learn to follow another dog around to find birds.
